Jerry Garcia (Full-name: Jerome John Garcia) was born on 1 August 1942, in San Francisco, California. He began playing the guitar at the age of 15 and was heavily influenced by bluegrass and folk music. In 1965, he co-founded the Grateful Dead with fellow musician Bob Weir. The band quickly gained a following for their unique blend of rock, folk, blues, and country music, and became known for their improvisational live performances.
Throughout his career, Garcia also released several solo albums and collaborated with other musicians, including the Jerry Garcia Band and the Garcia/Grisman acoustic duo. He was also a member of the supergroup the Other Ones, which formed in 1998 after the Grateful Dead disbanded following Garcia's death.
Garcia struggled with drug addiction throughout his life, which ultimately contributed to his death on August 9, 1995. He died of a heart attack in a drug rehab facility in Forest Knolls, California. He is widely considered to be one of the most influential guitarists of the 20th century and his contributions to the Grateful Dead's music continue to be celebrated by fans around the world.
