Grateful Dead fans are legendary for their Dead-ication to the band and its enduring legacy of freewheeling musical exploration. "The Grateful Dead Scrapbook" collects a trove of rare removable memorabilia and evocative images culled from the Grateful Dead Archives at the University of Santa Cruz, including never-before-published photos, flyers, fan letters, and other ephemera. To accompany the eye-popping visuals, renowned journalist Ben Fong-Torres contributes a rich text that tells the band's story in a fresh way, centering each chapter on a pivotal song that encapsulates a certain era of the band's songwriting, performance, and community, and drawing on his personal knowledge of the San Francisco music scene and the band. Bound in an eye-catching slipcase and including an audio CD, "The Grateful Dead Scrapbook" is a fully illustrated volume as colorful as the band itself.Biografía del autor:
