Publisher's Summary

No longer dismissed as relics of the hippie era, a new generation has lionized the Dead for creating a culture that paved the way for social networking, free music swapping, and the uncompromising anticorporate attitude of indie rock. Now, fifty years after the band first began changing rock 'n' roll both sonically and psychically, So Many Roads paints the most vivid portrait yet of the Grateful Dead, one of the most enduring institutions in American music and culture.

Excellent and thorough history

If you could sum up So Many Roads in three words, what would they be?

An interesting apporach


What other book might you compare So Many Roads to and why?

Almost any rock biography


What about Sean Runnette’s performance did you like?

Clear without being dry.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A strange trip deconstructed.


Any additional comments?

A nice, comprehensive band bio that doesn't shy away from some of the darker stuff. Basing each chapter around a specific show/date adds just enough variety to keep it from being the "same old, same old" band bio. Good stuff for fans and newcomers alike.
