“The acid is just coming on as I slip through the narrow space between Jerry’s amps and find my spot behind him on the stage, far enough to stage right to not block his view of his gear, nor hit him with the sweep of my arms as I dance myself free of my body...”
With these words, photographer and Grateful Dead insider Rosie McGee pulls us into her 10-year memoir of living, traveling and working with the Dead and other notables of the legendary Sixties. Over 200 photos, many never seen.
Not just for Dead Heads or baby boomers—this book is for anyone seeking a woman’s intimate account of the San Francisco rock music community in the Sixties, rare in a field of such books most often written by men.

Rosie took me on her journey without my seatbelt on and it was definitely a wild ride!! I loved every minute of it!!!
Amazing stories from an exceptional life! Well written and fun to read. Thanks Rosie!
Beyond a mere recollection of the 60's and beyond, Rosie lays it all out there for all to see and read. Fantastic telling of experiences that I'm sure were as described, she wears her heart on her sleeve in this book and I am grateful she does. Bravo, Rosie, bravo!
