Jerry Garcia seems like a real asshole. He still hung out with Hell's Angels after Altamont. He refused to address fans after attendance at his shows became dangerous. He kicked his wife out after she caught him using.

As for the Dead themselves:

- The film failed to make the case that they were musically valid

- The film almost completely bypassed their albums because they're not worth talking about

- I still don't know why they have two drummers. The kind of music they make just doesn't warrant it.

- The Dead come off as an awful cover band, putting a hippy, noodley spin on songs no one should listen to anymore under any circumstances

- They don't even have the energy to write their own lyrics

- Deadheads are mostly non-creative, non musicians who think any sound that comes from an instrument is phenomenal and unexplainable

So you are better off listening to McDonald and Giles?
