He Woulda Been 68 Today

68 Years ago today one of musics legendary figures was born. I really wanted to showcase the man so below you will see a clip that really gives you a good look at his fingers dancing across the frets. The song is “Deal” and the band behind him is the Jerry Garcia Band.

Very few outside of Deadheads ever put him up there in terms of guitar skill.  Perhaps this clip will open a few more eyes. Hit the vid.

Jerome John Garcia  (August 1, 1942 РAugust 9, 1995)

    You might want to do your math. He would have been 68 to-day. I was born Aug. 15th 1941 and I will be 69 on that date, but you are right he is a good musician.
