For 30 years, the Grateful Dead were the most unlikely success story in rock and roll. At the peak of their popularity, they were the highest-grossing concert act in America. Director Amir Bar-Lev joins us to talk about his remarkable film “Long Strange Trip” that explores all aspects of this beloved band, a tribe of contrarians who made art out of open-ended chaos, and inadvertently achieved success.
Longtime heads will happily tune in and drop out, of course, but casual or even non-fans shouldn't fear Long Strange Trip, the definitive and unprecedented look at the life of the Dead. Join us and Amir to hear more about this one-of-a-kind documentary film.
