Punk/New Wave Icons Diggin' the Garcia Long After the Punk Wars Ended

With Elvis Costello, whose praises Jerry was singing back in '78. Mill Valley, CA 1989

With Sting, who the Dead picked to open some shows in 1993. Garcia sat in w/ Sting's band for a few songs. 

And, well. here's Jerry when he was a young man. Backstage at the Ark in Boston, April 1969.  (and by the way, the three nights the Dead played at the tiny Ark club--April 21-23-- are some of the most raucous they ever played. They proved they could dish back the Boston attitude. Don't let that acoustic fool you).
