Jerry Garcia started his musical career in the sixties. Captivated by artists like Bo Diddley and Chuck Berry, he often played guitar in his free time. But at that time it was only a passion for him and he wasn’t looking for a professional career in music. One time, Garcia stole his mother’s car and as a punishment had to join the army. But since he was never interested in making a military career; he didn’t obey the rules and spent most of his time at leisure. Soon he was given a general discharge that gave him all the freedom to make a career of choice.
Jerry Garcia moved to East Palo Alto and met a few friends. Struggling for the right direction to make his career, he met an accident that gave him serious injuries. In an interview once he disclosed, “That's where my life began. Before then I was always living at less than capacity. I was idling. That was the slingshot for the rest of my life. It was like a second chance. Then I got serious”. He met bassist of the Grateful Dead, Phil Lesh and began recording music. With the addition of other members, this was the time when the first ever recording of Garcia came out and turned out to be success. Since then for about thirty years, till his death, Jerry Garcia Band ensured that the music industry isn’t deprived of good music.
Among the band’s first few albums, Garcia’s favorite was “Cats Under the Stars”. Released in the late seventies with songs like Cats Under the Stars, Love in the Afternoon and Don’t Let Go, it was a success and earned worldwide fame. Followed by other albums like “Jerry Garcia Band”, “How Sweet It Is” and “Don’t Let Go”, they got inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and earned a ranking in the Rolling Stone Magazine’s “100 Greatest Artists of All Times.”
Jerry Garcia lost his battle with life in the mid nineties but the music industry didn’t forget him for his valuable contributions. He was known as Uncle Jerry for his amiable stage presence and Captain Trips for making innumerable stage performances. Garcia was a musical and a cultural icon. His philosophies and improvisatory style was further expanded on by generations of followers.
