One of the most iconic “acid rock” bands is The Grateful Dead. The Grateful Dead had such an amazing following that people would travel with them through they’re whole touring schedule, going to every city they went to hear them play and be a part of The Grateful Dead experience. These people were sometimes called dead heads (fun fact: Bill Walton is a notorious dead head and gives some of the most bizarre/funny basketball commentating ever). The Dead’s performance style reflected bringing people together and allowing them an escape from reality through music and drugs. They would often do ten to twenty minutes songs with lots of improvisation. They wanted concert goers to feel like they were part of the experience, not just listening to some rock stars up on stage. It was viewed as more of a great gathering of likeminded people and the Grateful Dead were providing music for this occasion. It was a very feel-good attitude toward life, music, and the drugs.

  • The Importance Of Personality In James Joyce's A Little Cloud

    Throughout his short story “A Little Cloud,” James Joyce considers the ramifications of remaining sedentary in Dublin through his characters Little Chandler and Ignatius Gallaher.

  • Example Of Realism In 'Eveline's Visitant And' The Dead?

    “Eveline’s Visitant” by Mary Elizabeth Braddon and “The Dead” by James Joyce are both short stories that show strong examples of a “haunting”.
