Robert Hall Weir was born on October 16,1947 in San Francisco, California. He had trouble in school because of undiagnosed dyslexia. On New Year's Eve, 1963, 16-year-old Weir and another underage friend were wandering the back alleys of Palo Alto, looking for a club that would admit them, when they heard banjo music. They followed the music to its source, Dana Morgan's Music Store. Here, a young Jerry Garcia, oblivious to the date, was waiting for his students to arrive. Weir and Garcia decided to form a band. Originally called Mother McCree's Uptown Jug Champions, the band was later renamed The Warlocks and eventually the Grateful Dead. Weir played rhythm guitar and sang a portion of the lead vocals through all of the Dead's 30-year career. His unique guitar style is strongly influenced by the hard bop pianist McCoy Tyner and he has cited artists as diverse as John Coltrane, the Rev. Gary Davis, and Igor Stravinsky as influences. Weir participated in the various reformations of the Grateful Dead's member ...

Here is what happened on this day (August 1st) in Rock History: In 1942: Jerry Garcia (Jerome John Garcia) of the Grateful Dead is born in San Francisco. The original group members are part of Mother McCree’s Uptown Jug Champions and later the Warlocks. A flavor of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, Cherry Garcia, is named after the singer. In 1960: Aretha Franklin makes her first secular recordings, including “Today I Sing the Blues.” In 1971: George Harrison’s Concert for Bangladesh benefit kicks off at Madison Square Garden.

I just finished co-creating the new flier for the next The Cosmic Mass Oakland which will actually be in San Francisco for the first time since Jerry Garcia passed away (he was at the first TCM in the basement of Grace Cathedral)!
Some of the very best memories in my life. I was stationed at the Presidio of San Francisco in the mid 70's while in the the Army and I had the fortunate opporunity of seeing The Dead play numerous times at Winterland and at Kezar Stadium in Golden Gate Park, as well as seeing The Jerry Garcia Band play often over at the Keystone Berkeley w/ Merl Saunders, Nicky Hopkins and other selected guests. Yeah, I'm a Deadhead and proud of it. I consider myself a lucky fellow And I'm so glad I was born when I was

San Francisco psychedelic folk-rock unit It's a Beautiful Day was primarily the vehicle of virtuoso violinist David LaFlamme, born April 5, 1941 in New Britain, Connecticut but raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. After beginning his musical education at age five, LaFlamme later served as a soloist with the Utah Symphony, following an army stint by settling in the Bay Area in 1962. There he immersed himself in the local underground music scene, jamming alongside the likes of Jerry Garcia and Janis Joplin; after his short-lived Electric Chamber Orchestra splintered, LaFlamme also co-founded an early incarnation of Dan Hicks & His Hot Licks before assembling It's a Beautiful Day in mid-1967. The group -- which originally included LaFlamme's keyboardist wife Linda, vocalist Pattie Santos, guitarist Hal Wagenet, bassist Mitchell Holman, and drummer Val Fuentes -- issued its self-titled debut LP on Columbia in 1969, scoring their biggest hit with the haunting FM radio staple "White Bird." Linda LaFlamme left It's a ...
such a sad day. August 9,1995 Jerry Garcia, the 53-year-old guitarist and co-founder of the Grateful Dead, died today at a Northern California residential drug treatment center. The cause, according to authorities, was a heart attack. The Grateful Dead blended blues, rock, country and folk music with a dash of the psychedelic sound of the sixties counter-culture that grew out of their home base of San Francisco. Over three decades, the dead became one of the most popular concert draws in the world. Songs like "Truckin'," "Casey Jones," and "Friend of the Devil" were staples of album rock radio, yet the Grateful Dead only had one top ten hit, "Touch of Gray," in 1987. Nonetheless, they became a cultural phenomenon and almost a way of life for their fans, known as "Deadheads." Some followed them around the country, and many can boast of seeing hundreds of concerts. As one fan remembered, "You wanted to go to every show because you didn't know what would happen next. The records didn't necessarily convey tha ...

In new animated video, Jerry Garcia talks about the early days of the Grateful Dead, from playing divorcee bars up in San Francisco to becoming the house band at Ken Kesey's acid tests. The video is the latest in the animated video series by Blank on Blank.
In 1963 bluegrass banjo and guitar player Jerry Garcia, blues vocalist and harmonica player Ron "Pigpen" McKernan, and washtub bass and jug blower Bob Weir formed Mother McCree's Uptown Jug Champions in East Palo Alto, California. Constantly recruiting new players, the group was looking to be more improvisational and spontaneous than the highly structured and formulaic bluegrass San Francisco Bay area bands of the era. Group attitudes and early attempts at lyrics were influenced by the cynicism of the poets and authors of the 1950s Beat generation that were still hanging around San Francisco clubs. After the British Invasion of 1964, however, McKernan suggested that the acoustic band should go electric and get a rhythm section. Both Garcia and Weir picked up electric guitars, McKernan obtained a portable electronic organ, and drummer Bill Kreutzmann and an electric bassist were added. When the original bass player did not work out, Garcia friend and avant-garde composer Phil Lesh was recruited for the spo ...
HISTORY IS DOOMED TO REPEAT ITSELF. For all those bemoaning the fate of San Francisco in its death throes, I ask you to look up the "Death of the Hippie" funeral staged in Buena Vista Park on October 6th, 1967. One day the Mission will look like the Haight, with the meaningless outward trappings of contemporary creative culture refashioned into gimmicks and tourist junk. Instead of tie dye and plush Jerry Garcia dolls there will be fixed-wheel bike keychains and T-shirts that read "I heart PBR + tacos" written in faux-graffitti style lettering. Actually, this probably already exists. Anyways, THIS HAPPENED BEFORE FOLKS. Here's a little reading appetizer (just substitute crime + drugs with blandness + technology and see where that gets you):
1988. “Soviet American Peace Walk” with Jerry Garcia. “Goodnight Irene” Jerry Garcia & Zero. Jerry signals my piano solo about halfway through the song. I had been asked to procure musicians and produce the music for the "Soviet American Peace Walk," a concert held at the Band Shell in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco. The event drew 25,000 people, probably mostly thanks to Jerry Garcia agreeing to come down…but it didn’t hurt that people like Grace Slick, Paul Kantner, Mickey Hart, Merle Saunders, Norton Buffalo, John Cipollina, and the band, Zero, and many others also came down to play. It was towards the end of the Cold War...but nobody knew that yet, and a large group of Soviet citizens had arranged a peace and goodwill walk across the USA. This was one of the concerts welcoming them to the West Coast. It was a Beautiful Day in the park and we had a strict mid-afternoon curfew placed on us by the city. I'd asked Zero to play two songs on their own before switching to the role of back-up ban ...

I met Jerry Garcia and Bob Weir for the first time in 1970, when John Cipollina took me down to the KSAN radio studios, then on Sutter Street in San Francisco. This was a time when FM rock radio, under the influence of Tom Donahue, still had the “anything goes” pioneering spirit of Haight Ashbury and the psychedelic sixties. Richard Gossette was the presiding DJ, and he had decided on a whim to try a live broadcast from the station’s record library, the first of several KSAN live concerts, later moved to the more formal Record Plant Studios in Sausalito. John played his red Gibson SG guitar sporting his latest custom bat pick-guard, his younger brother, Mario, played bass, Bob played acoustic rhythm and sang, I played an old upright piano, and Jerry decided to play his beloved Pedal Steel. We ran through four or five tunes with lots of dead air space and quipping in between. I remember being impressed by the haunting, melodic tones of the pedal steel guitar. Jerry didn’t consider himself a particu ...

Nov. 23 at 9:00p $12 adv./$15 door-cash only dance ages 21+ Keystone Revisited was bought together because of the huge demand from fans to hear more music from the originators of the so-called “Jam Band”. When Merl Saunders and Jerry Garcia got together in such groups as The Saunders Garcia Band, Reconstruction and Legion Of Mary it was pure magic, at the genesis of the jam band era. What better way to pay homage to these legendary players than by teaming BILL VITT (who played with Merl and Jerry), TONY SAUNDERS (the son of Merl, who started playing with them when he was 18), MICHAEL HINTON (who played with Merl in High Noon with Mickey Hart and Merl’s Rainforest Band). Drummer, Bill Vitt actually helped start the scene at the Matrix in San Francisco where Jerry first came to Jam. When Merl appeared, h ...

Before becoming a central figure of the music scene in San Francisco, and the lead guitarist and vocalist of the Grateful Dead, Jerry Garcia attended the California School of Fine Arts. Using cartoon-like take-offs on disparate subjects like vampires, dragons and politicians, he created a distinctive style, and a visual universe of his own. With a few lines, and small patches of color, he was able to show funny and philosophical layers of his rich personality. As his artistic skills developed, he encompassed realism, surrealism, and geometric abstraction. His versatility allowed him to express himself in pen and ink, crayon, watercolor, airbrush and print making. He once stated ‘I hope no one takes my art too seriously’. Jerry Garcia died in 1995, leaving behind an unforgettable legacy of music and visual art. Image Makers Art, Inc. has been exhibiting his artwork since 1992. Image Makers Art Inc. is a leader in exhibiting artwork by musicians and actors and has been featured in USA Today, The Wall St ...

From todays Las Vegas NV paper..Daren Libonati and booking the GD in Vegas. "In the early 1990s, I was given the opportunity to book and coordinate the contract for the Grateful Dead. There was so much concern about bringing a band of this nature to an outdoor stadium like Sam Boyd Stadium. A small team and I headed to San Francisco to view a handful of Dead dates. Upon returning, I was asked to present the plan to handle the ingress and egress of fans while also managing the event staff and live-event performance. The experience was the greatest. This event allowed me to understand the importance of believing in what you can’t see and the importance of a plan. Everything from A-Z was new, and nothing close had ever been done by our TMC team. The communication and peer-to-peer coordination were priceless, as we hadn’t entered the cell phone or social media age. It was good old-fashioned, face-to-face business. In the end, the Dead came back three more times before the death of Jerry Garcia and the end ...

To this day, I have never revealed what was being passed between the two of them." I think he's my man! ;-)

Membership Lead guitarist Jerry Garcia was often seen both by the public and the media as the leader or primary spokesperson for the Grateful Dead, but was reluctant to be perceived that way, especially since he and the other group members saw themselves as equal participants and contributors to their collective musical and creative output.[70][71] Garcia, a native of San Francisco, grew up in the Excelsior District. One of his main influences was bluegrass music, and Garcia also performed—on banjo, one of his other great instrumental loves, along with the pedal steel guitar—in bluegrass bands, notably Old and in the Way with mandolinist David Grisman. The singer-songwriter Bruce Hornsby never officially joined the band, because of his other commitments, but he did play keyboards at most Dead shows between September 1990 and March 1992, and sat in with the band over one hundred times in all between 1988 and 1995.[72][73] Robert Hunter and John Perry Barlow were the band's primary lyricists. Twelve mem ...
I found out that my mom went to school with Mike Wilhem, he was a guitarist, singer and songwriter from California. Mike, learned to play blues guitar in his teens, from legendary Tennessee bluesman Walter "Brownie" McGhee. He was a founding member of the influential Bay Area band The Charlatans, who were the first psychedelic rock band in San Francisco. when the photographer Herb Green asked Jerry Garcia who his favorite guitarist was, Garcia responded "Mike Wilhelm" without hesitation. Thanks mom for another lesson learned! I Love You!
On this day in 1996, The rest of Jerry Garcia's ashes were scattered near the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.
