If you are a Deadhead, you won’t want to miss this event! Photographer Susana Millman and longtime Grateful Dead publicist and author Dennis McNally, appearing at The 5 Spot with Dead cover band The Stolen Faces, on Sunday, April 2, at 9 p.m. They will take the stage to share stories of their time with the band, as well as selling and signing their books, followed by a performance of Dead tunes by The Stolen Faces.
As a close friend of the Grateful Dead, Bay Area photographer Susana Millman spent many years inside the band’s inner circle, photographing them on- and offstage, often in candid, intimate moments. She recently released a gorgeous hardcover photographic memoir of her experiences with the Dead, titled ALIVE WITH THE DEAD — OR A FLY ON THE WALL WITH A CAMERA. The book features a forward by Dead drummer Mickey Hart.
The book also features notes by longtime Dead publicist (and Millman’s husband) Dennis McNally, who is the author of the definitive history of the band, A LONG STRANGE TRIP: THE INSIDE HISTORY OF THE GRATEFUL DEAD. McNally also edited the 2015 book JERRY ON JERRY: THE UNPUBLISHED JERRY GARICA INTERVIEWS. (McNally is the author of a couple of other critically acclaimed books, ON HIGHWAY 61: MUSIC, RACE, AND THE EVOLUTION OF CULTURAL FREEDOM, and DESOLATE ANGEL: JACK KEROUAC, THE BEAT GENERATION AND AMERICA.)
