Happy Jerry Day!


Today is Jerry Garcia's birthday otherwise known as Jerry Day! He'd be 68 today.

Here's Jerry in the 60s hanging out with Hugh Hefner on Playboy After Dark and performing Mountains of the Moon...



Here's one of my favorite videos of Jerry warming up backstage...



Thanks to Bob who sent this Jerry Band video of one of my favorite Dylan covers...



For some of the best photos of Jerry Garcia on the web check out Bob Minkin's gallery.

Gathering of the Vibes had an exhibit of Garcia's framed art including some of his ties.

Somewhere on a wall in a Burlington Vermont townie bar if its still standing is grafitti I tagged that says we love you Jerry: Lori & JM. I think it was the Chicken Bone or the Sheik if they existed in Burlington back in 1978-1980 and not Boulder.
