Jerry Garcia: free Dead tunes and more in "The Fader"

It's been 40 years since the Summer of Love. Jerry Garcia gets a big write-up in NY magazine The Fader. You can download the full magazine as a PDF and listen to a Grateful Dead podcast. All for free, man.

The Grateful Dead was an incredible musical force that defined its generation, with Garcia as its de facto leader, to the point that the band is almost synonymous with the '60s. Yet the Dead-and Jerry especially-remained an active force well into the '90s, and the band's power and influence has anything but diminished since their final show. In fact, Jerry and the Dead are as relevant now as they've ever been-a constant inspiration and obsession for the current generation of musicians that The FADER celebrates issue after issue.
