If you were a dead-head, that means you were an uber-fan of the Grateful Dead! The Grateful Dead was a psychedelic rock band from yesteryear that emerged in 1965 during the counterculture era. They were known for their unique, eclectic style of music ranging from rock, jazz, country and folk, to bluegrass, blues and reggae. They embodied the essence of the spirit of that era; the spirit being … just be yourself and do what makes you happy!
