Publisher Description

The legendary bass player tells the full, true story of his years with Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead in this "insightful and entertaining" (Austin Chronicle) memoir of life in the greatest improvisational band in American history.  In a book "as graceful and sublime as a box of rain" (New York Times Book Review), the beloved bassist tells the stories behind the songs, tours, and jams in the Grateful Dead's long, strange trip from the 1960s to the death of Jerry Garcia in 1995 and beyond. From Ken Kesey's "acid tests" to the Summer of Love to bestselling albums and worldwide tours, the Dead's story has never been told as honestly or as memorably as in this remarkable memoir. "A fun ride...Even for the most well-read Deadhead, there's enough between the covers to make Searching for the Sound worth a look." —Associated Press

Groovy

Reading this first hand account of one of the greatest rock bands in history really gives you the idea of what it was like to live on the road with the Dead. You really get attached to these people as Phil introduces you to them.

A gripping tale of a grate band and family

Phil brings to life the band and it's journey from a small entity, to what ended up being a "family" business. Weaving through the years of music, travel, family and friends. Sharing stories of joy and sorrow. His relationship with Jerry Garcia is of adoration, admiration and love for a "brother". All together this is a gripping read.
