Publisher's Summary

No longer dismissed as relics of the hippie era, a new generation has lionized the Dead for creating a culture that paved the way for social networking, free music swapping, and the uncompromising anticorporate attitude of indie rock. Now, fifty years after the band first began changing rock 'n' roll both sonically and psychically, So Many Roads paints the most vivid portrait yet of the Grateful Dead, one of the most enduring institutions in American music and culture.

A Good Starting Point

Would you listen to So Many Roads again? Why?

Yes I would, if nothing else, just to get a sense of history of the band. It's made me want to go back and listen to the music again too.


What other book might you compare So Many Roads to, and why?

Difficult to say really - it's a good beginner's guide to the story of the phenomenon that was the Grateful Dead


What does Sean Runnette bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

A langrous laid back and easy going style that seems to capture the essence of the story and the music


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The story of Jerry Garcia's first health issue in 1986 and the subsequent revitalisation of the group


Any additional comments?

If you are a Dead Head, then there will be nothing new under the sun to you here. If however, you are discovering the band for the first time or returning to them after pushing them to the back of your music collection, this is a good companion to the music. Listen. Enjoy.
