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

This one has a message board and a chat room.
This is the chat room that's part of the DeadRadio site.

How about that, some Deadheads even write shareware.
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.
