The Grateful Dead were a blues band. The music of Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir and Phil Lesh wasn't only built from blues music but they never gave up playing it live throughout their entire career. Elmore James, Howlin 'Wolf or Jimmy Reed are always present in the psychedelia of their music or in the long Garcia's solos, as well as the original rock'n'roll of Chuck Berry and Buddy Holly who baptized the band's beginnings. The musicians that has probably spent more hours together playing on stage in the history of pop music, had a career as intense as it was fruitful. The albums recorded between 1967 and 1975 are decalogues for the Californian psychedelia, turned into gurus for the most faithful and unconditional legion of fans that a pop band has ever had. And among their endless tours are some of the most memorable shows in the memory of his time. In no case were a rock band performing blues music, The Dead also had the blues.
