Moon Jasmine: The Night Jerry Garcia Forgot To Tell Me Something And I Forgot To Ask

Al Aronowitz, Blacklisted Masterpieces of Al Aronowitz, The, 1978

1. San Francisco

Jerry Garcia wanted me to write a story about him. That was the deal. I was managing this folksinger who needed heavy help in the studio. The folksinger had some tunes I thought he ought to record with a rock band and so I'd told him I'd get him a rock band. All I had to do was write a story about Jerry Garcia.
