About this item

Fifty years after they first came together and changed the sound of rock 'n' roll, the Grateful Dead remain one of rock's most beloved bands - a musical and cultural phenomenon that spans generations and paved the way for everything from the world of jam bands and the idea of independently released music to social networking. Much has been written about the band, but nothing quite as vibrant and vivid as So Many Roads.Drawing on new interviews with surviving members and people in their inner circle - along with the group's extensive archives and his own research from years of covering the group - David Browne, longtime music journalist and contributing editor at Rolling Stone, does more than merely delve into the Dead's saga. By way of an altogether unique structure - each chapter centered around a significant or pivotal day in their story - he lends this epic musical and cultural story a you-are-there feel unlike any other book written about the band.
