Remembering Jerry Garcia on Grateful Dead Channel

Jerry Garcia

Jerry Garcia

Born in San Fransisco on August 1st, 1942, Jerry Garcia would grow up to become the legendary front-man for the era-defining band, The Grateful Dead. Passing away just days after his birthday 22 years ago, this year Garcia would have been 75. Celebrating the anniversary of his birth, friends, fans, and band members are coming together to honor him with the annual special, The Days Between.

Between the date of his birth and his passing, the Grateful Dead Channel (Ch. 23) will honor his memory with performances going back to 1974, memories of Garcia from his friends and fans, and a countdown from Dead guitarist Warren Hayes looking back at his nine favorite Grateful Dead songs.

The tribute will take fans across multiple decades and stage performances. From August 1974 in Santa Cruz, CA to Berkeley, CA in 1990, the special will give listeners a chance to enjoy some of Garcia’s greatest shows.

Last summer At Mountain Jam 2016, Warren Haynes recounted where he was when Jerry Garcia passed away and how he came up with the first lines of his song Patchwork Quilt. Haynes, who with Government Mule recently released their latest album Revolution Come … Revolution Go, can be heard on the GDC with our rebroadcasts of the 2016 Jerry Garcia Symphonic Celebration feat. Warren Haynes & the Colorado Symphony from Red Rocks, Colorado.
