These papers examine various aspects of the subculture surrounding the rock band the Grateful Dead. Deadheads, as the group's fans are called, followed the band from venue to venue until the band dissolved in 1995. Topics include the Deadhead identity, the relationship between Deadheads and the larger society, the religious nature of the fans' devotion to the band, the impact of the music, and the role of vendors at shows. Contributors include sociologists, anthropologists, social workers, scholars of folklore, historians, photographers, and Deadheads themselves. Annotation c.
