It was 17 years ago today I noticed the local radio station had been playing an unusual amount of Grateful Dead music that day. Then my co-worker came in and broke the news. As a huge Deadhead who had seen and heard Jerry's major decline in the past couple of years, I was still completely shocked and frankly still am. He was one of those rare artists who seemed timeless....as if they would and had to live forever. You simply couldn't imagine a world without them.
With the amazing amount of music he left us with, he has never really left me. Below is a show I was blessed to attend and the way I love to remember Jerry....full of life, creativity, and sweet music!!
