A music "god" to many of his hippie followers from the 60's-until his death is 1995. A father to many, "Jerry's kid" was a popular bumper sticker during the Grateful Dead years. We lament the death of our beloved Jerry, and we continue to remember him and see the rest of his band, The Dead, tour and put on some great shows. Thingswont be the same, but we gotta keep on truckin'
Nobody stopped thinking about those psychedelic experiences. Once you've been to some of those places, you think, "How can I get back there again but make it a little easier on myself?"
