Everyone knows about Hendrix, Joplin and the Dead. But there were many other bands, including some really big names, that got lost in the mix — for various reasons. And there were others that were just … odd. See more in the next episode of our Woodstock video series.
David & The Dorks is an early example but other Dead spin-off bands include Old and In the Way, Go Ahead, Weir & Wasserman, Dead & Company, and Golden Gate Wingmen.
“Cassidy,” “Looks Like Rain” and “Black Throated Wind” are great examples of Barlow’s poetic work for the Dead.
