Happy Birthday, Jerry Garcia

Jerry Garcia, leader of the Grateful Dead, would have been 67 today.

He passed away in 1995 and will be remembered for his painting as well as his solo work and work with the Dead.

Check out SIRIUS XM's Grateful Dead Channel any time from August 1st through August 9th as they feature "Jerry Week" (yeah - that's 9 days).
That's Sirius 32 and XM 57.

They'll feature more archival music, fan recordings, and his side work as well as his work with the Dead.

My favorite lyric of the theirs comes from, "Touch of Grey."

"Whistle through your teeth and spit, but it's alright."

How graphic can one line get?
