Star Wars and The Grateful Dead

In this STAR WARS IN POP CULTURE highlight, we listen to Grateful Dead crew member Big Steve Parish answer a question we've been wondering about for a long time: Was Jerry Garcia a Star Wars fan? Plus we note all the connections between the two biggest pop culture franchises to rise out of the Bay Area: Star Wars and the good old Grateful Dead.  

A great example of the collaboration between George Lucas and members of The Grateful Dead can be seen here, as Lucas gives drummer Mickey Hart a tour of Skywalker Sound.
