A rock band from the time when rock was real and pure.
Hippies who encouraged drug use that, although they did not encourage hippie movement, obviously moved it down the right path.
Their name originates with a mid-southern European belief in the grateful dead-- Men whose spirits were ill-at-ease until someone buried them properly. The spirits often rewarded their helper with wishes, money, and worldly goods.
Rock on, Jerry!
Grateful Dead FROCKS!
