Jerry Garcia Week 2010: Day 7 – The Side Projects

In addition to being the lead guitarist/vocalist for the Grateful Dead, Jerry Garcia fronted and participated in many other projects that allowed him to explore his forever-expanding appreciation of and fascination with all types of music.

Here are some of my favorites:

Here’s Jerry rehearsing on pedal steel for a gig with the New Riders Of The Purple Sage. This is an excerpt from the rarely seen film FILLMORE (1972):
