Grateful Dead links
the very tip of the iceberg but a great tip, nonetheless!
The official home page of the Grateful
site with many exciting, permanent features such as "Tapers'
Section", "Jam of the Week", "Greatest
Stories Ever Told", "Grateful Dead Hour", and
of course "The Deadnet Store". Plus recurring features
"30 Days of Dead" (in November) og "The Dead
Covers Project" (in February). Highly
is, of course, the invaluable book that helps us keep track
of which songs were played at which show, where and how. The
DeadBase website, unfortunately, is no longer active, but
some of the functions have been transferred to Dead.net (/Archives).
The books are also sold here, as well as on Amazon.com and
Grateful Dead on Facebook:
Get the latest news and rumours and chat with deadheads from
all over the world.
Stanley, a.k.a. Bear, was a LSD-manufacturer, soundman for
the Dead, record producer, graphics designer, and much, much
more. Even though this legendary figure passed away a few
years ago, his website lives on.
GD Lyric and Song Finder:
the mumbled lyrics? Cant recall which song has the line
Wake of the flood in it? How many cover songs
were sung by Pigpen? Find the answer to these questions and
more at the nifty Song Finder site. Interesting fact: Alex
Allan, the deadhead who developed this site, is IT-advisor
to Tony Blair and former British High Commisioner in Australia!
Grateful Dead Songlists:
This is the
place to find chords and guitar tab notations to all original
songs by the Grateful Dead, the Jerry Garcia Band and other
spin-off bands. Used to have all the cover songs too, but
they were removed at some point to avoid copyright problems.
Also numerous dead-related chat forums.
The Annotated Grateful Dead Lyrics,
by David Dodd: http://artsites.ucsc.edu/GDead/agdl/
site of a somewhat academic nature. David Dodd is a professor
of English litterature at UCSC, and the core of his site is
a thorough analysis of metaphors and textual references in
(eventually) all songs written and recorded by the Grateful
Dead. There is also a fascinating collection of essays (some
more obtuse than others), about specific songs and various
aspects of GD imagery.
guitar player in numerous sixties' bands, sells (mainly) psychedelic
and other sixties' music on his site. Also hippie-type clothing,
beads, smoking paraphernalia, etc. etc.
about the beatnik and hippie cultures in and around San Francisco
in the fifties and sixties, which were the breeding ground
for The Grateful Dead and countless other bands. A very good
resume - there is even an English version if you can find
it - the webmaster is a bit of a jester!
