Long, Strange Trip to UCSC



The Grateful Dead is on the road again. Well, at least some 40 years of the beloved band’s musical memorabilia is, having traveled down Highway 1 to its new home at UC Santa Cruz.

The band’s donation of the collection (said to be both priceless and worth multi-millions) to the university was officially announced in Spring 2008.

But to raise awareness (and funds) for this yet-to-open treasure trove, Chronicle Books publisher Nion McEvoy hosted friends, fans and Dead drummer Mickey Hart at his home last week.
