Tour Head
"I Was an Acid Fueled Teenage Dead Fiend!"

Overview


Tour Head details forty years of crazy road stories, spanning my teen to adult life traveling to see The Grateful Dead, Jerry Garcia Band and now, Dead and Company. Tour Head chronicles the road trips, acid trips and mind flips, and all the ensuing hijinks that went down inside, outside and in between the hundreds of concerts I attended. From being pulled over on acid in Utah, to selling the standard veggie sandwiches, to smuggling weed, to dancing in Madison Square Garden, the stories, much like the music, never stopped. So, I'm telling them to you now, while the memories are still intact! Join myself and my friends on our journey of awakening, experienced on the road, living it up across America, following the legendary tripping earth ship known as The Grateful Dead!

Includes over eighty original photographs!

Description


Our young lives became a part of the Grateful Dead shows and a part of the parking lot scene that evolved into Shakedown Street. Tour Head opens a window to the ways of the road and the extreme lengths Tour Heads will go to, just to get that miracle ticket and be at one more Grateful Dead gig! A humorous, yet unflinching look at a life spent in pursuit of a musical dream. Told from the perspective of someone who is not a musician in a traveling band, just a rabid fan, so obsessed that depression would set in if a few shows were missed!
