Jerry Garcia by Annie Leibovitz
Little known guitar-fact: Garcia taught Eddie Van Halen that two-handed nonsense that goes DeedleyDoodlyDoodleyDeedleyDoodleyDoodley.
Jerry had one of the most beautiful minds I’ve ever known. He would make connections between disparate thoughts and make them fit in harmonious ways. And his music was a lot like that also. It was paradoxical. He had that shit-between-the-toes, barnyard, down-home funkiness, and at the same time he could play the farthest-out spacey shit. He was always a source of wonder. When he played, it would be this endless stream of glorious melody.
