Jerry Garcia Week 2011 Day 2: The Interview


When the Grateful Dead Movie screened theatrically a few months back, it was preceded by a recently discovered 15 minute “interview” with Garcia. The footage was shot on 16mm and was part of the footage originally intended for the movie back in 1974. However, none of this footage actually made it into the film. Though called an “interview,” the footage more accurately shows Garcia hanging out smoking and chatting about all kinds of subjects from David Bowie to personal growth to his amazing journey to becoming a “professional” musician. It’s all very loose and casual. An amazing snapshot of time and place. And of the incredible man so many of us fell in love with.
