U S A  -  psychédélique  -  *** 


Grateful Dead
 est une légende incontournable de la scène psychédélique
de San Francisco durant les années soixante, légende forgée à l'aide de
l'absorbsion de grandes quantités de LSD. Formée par le guitariste
Jerry Garcia , le guitariste  Bob Weir , le bassiste  Phil Lesh ,
le claviériste-chanteur  
Ron "Pigpen" McKernan  et le batteur
Bill Kreutzmann  en 1966, la formation se caractérise notamment par
ses longs jams et par l'inclusion de deux batteurs (le percussionniste
Mickey Hart  renforce l'effectif dès 1968). La musique du  Grateful Dead ,
mélange de rock, folk, blues, bluegrass avec des influences jazz.
Cette fusion des différents styles de musique populaire américaine a été
entretenue par une volonté d'expérimentation instrumentale.
Le groupe
sépare en 1995, après la disparition de son leader  Jerry Garcia .
