The Grateful Dead song "One Thing to Try" cautions listeners "Don't be a collector of more than you need," but that doesn't apply to tickets to the band's 50th anniversary reunion shows, which are fetching absurd prices on the secondary market.
The Grateful Dead will celebrate their 50th anniversary next year, and they're marking the occasion with a film executive produced by Martin Scorsese and billed as "their first official career-spanning documentary."
Bob Dylan wasn't exactly at the peak of his career when he released 'Dylan & the Dead,' a collaborative live album with the Grateful Dead, on Feb. 6, 1989. In fact, he was pretty close to the bottom of his popularity, influence and creativity. And another live album -- his third in 10 years -- certainly didn't help matters.
A new Grateful Dead beer will be hitting the market this fall. The band worked with Dogfish Head Craft Brewery to create American Beauty, a "bold pale ale made with 100 percent U.S.-grown ingredients." But it took a suggestion from a fan to get the mix just right.
Although the “road trips” might be coming to an end, it turns out that the Grateful Dead will keep the highway open with a new series of live releases curated by Dead archivist David Lemieux.
