Statue.com is glad to introduce artist Number 2  in our  Music Legends statue collection!  )“Come and join the party ever day,” sang Jerry Garcia and his band in the first original song on their first album.

Born in San Francisco on August 1, 1942, he joined with Ron “Pigpen” KcKeman in the early sixties playing a folk bluegrass style of music and forming the “Grateful Dead” band in 1965.

Over the next three decades, the Dead would extend its repertoire to include many different musical idioms, and would bring its wild show and entourage to cities across America and Europe, but throughout it all, good-jerry-garciathe band’s music would remain rooted in what was eventually called the “San Francisco Sound”.

The Dead carried the spirit of the Sixties counterculture through three decades of touring and a dozen more studio and live albums.  The “hippies” lived on in the form of Deadheads.

Another lasting legacy of the Dead was its influence on a new generation of jam bands which adopted improvisation as the basis for their music.  The Dead’s music endures because it is so unique. No other band brought together jazz-inspired improvisation and all of rock’s root idioms – country, blues, folk, R&B – into a live performance art Jerry Garcia bustwith such wide and sustained appeal.

Jerry passed away on August 9, 1995.  What a long strange trip it’s been…..
