These never-before-published interviews with Jerry Garcia reveal his thoughts on religion, politics, his past and personal life, and his creative process. Jerry on Jerry provides new insight into the beloved frontman of the Grateful Dead in time for the 50th anniversary of the band. Released by his estate and made available to the public for the first time, these are some of the most candid, intimate interviews with Jerry Garcia ever published. Beginning in 1973, Dennis McNally, the Dead's publicist and biographer, recorded seven hours of unedited tape on which Jerry speaks opening about everything from his euphoric encounter with early R&B to hating himself for voting for Johnson in the '64 election. Jerry on Jerry deskills the most poignant, unguarded astute moments of these conversations, showing a side of Jerry that even his biggest fans have not known. In addition, the estate is releasing more than 100 photographs and ephemera to be included throughout the book.
