Heynow. I'm trying a new layout that should make finding what you're looking for much easier. The subjects are now in alphabetical order, both in this directory and on the page itself. The links to the left take you to the part of the page containing that subject. If you can think of any subject category that I haven't included, let me know and if I can find enough material on that subject, I will add it. Also, if you know of any good sites that should be included here, let me know about those.

Because many Grateful Dead sites are done by college students who only have temporary web sites while in college, Grateful Dead sites tend to come and go like the wind, so if you find any bad links, please let me know so I can fix them. I hope you enjoy your trip.


Biographies and memorial

Jerry Garcia
This is the biography I wrote about Jerry shortly after his death.

Memorial for Jerry
This is the memorial I wrote the night after Jerry died. It used to have links to many other memorial pages, but sadly enough, many have disappeared since Jerry's death.

Shortly after putting this one on my site, a mailing list friend saw it and offered to take pictures of Pigpen's grave for this biography, and it even has directions to his grave.


Books about the Grateful Dead
These are my thumbnail book reviews of Grateful Dead books I have read

Grateful Dead Bibliography
This is the best one I know of at the Museum of the City of San Francisco

Deadhead chat sites

Deadheads are known to chat here Wednesday nights from 8:00PM EST-? (5:00PM PST-?). To log on from a UNIX
prompt, type irc server mercury.dead.net. If you use an IRC client program, type mercury.dead.net as the name of the
server. I've listed some other chat sites below.

Simple Software Dancin' Bear ScreenSaver
How about that, some Deadheads even write shareware.

Grateful Dead archives

FTP site
The Grateful Dead archives contain many useful items for Deadheads. Unfortunately, they don't have a front end web page index (that I know of) which makes these sites a hassle to search. I hope to change that with this page.

Freak vs. Hippie article
by Steve Silberman.

The gopher is another way to access the archives. It contains much of the same material.

Graphics and photos
Several different file formats to choose from.

Even the Grateful Dead and the Deadheads have had a few bad days. This is the comical stuff about the band and it's fans.

Spoof newsgroup FAQ
One of the most often questions asked on rec.music.gdead is "Where can I find the FAQs? I know I've seen here before, but now they're gone." This is about this problem and many others.

What was the first show the band played as the Grateful Dead?
It seems that the authors of the book, Skeleton Key: A Dictionary For Deadheads can't agree which show was the first.
