Live Dead is a stunning retrospective of more than forty years of Grateful Dead concerts through the lens of renowned music photographer Bob Minkin.

In addition to performance images, Live Dead showcases intimate backstage shots, photos of the tour scene, and unique ephemera from inside the Dead's legendary “Vault.” These indelible photographs present the essence of the Dead including peak moments from their concerts at dozens of venues, such as Red Rocks, Winterland, Radio City, Capitol Theatre, Europe '81, and many more. Additionally, this unique volume features behind-the-scenes stories about many of the images, tales from the road-experiences every Deadhead can relate to-as well as a foreword by Steve Parish, an introduction by Blair Jackson, and commentary from Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, Donna Jean, Wavy Gravy, Rock Scully, Carolyn “Mountain Girl” Garcia, Trixie Garcia, Ed Perlstein, and more. The post-Grateful Dead years are also represented through images of Furthur, Phil Lesh & Friends, Ratdog, and the current musical renaissance now happening in Marin County, California, at Terrapin Crossroads, Sweetwater Music Hall, and Bob Weir's TRI Studios.
