Phil Lesh's "Searching for the Sound"

Phil Lesh's "Searching for the Sound"

Postby Phil Lesh101 » Tue Aug 21, 2012 12:11 am

I have had the book for a long time and though I might start reading it, I was streaming youtube and found the audio book read by Phil himself! Even though Phil skips a few paragraphs every other page or so... he stick to the important parts. If you don't have the book I suggest spending some time and listen to Phil tell you "His Life With The Grateful Dead" :smile:
It's very emotional and inspiring listening to Phil read the book he wrote.

Great book - offers fascinating perspective and sometimes challenges the notion of who the "leader" of the band was over the years...

I've read it AND bought the audiobook. Both are very cool. His voice narrating it is exactly how I heard it while I read it. Definitley in the top 3 of GD books. (although I might be biased! :lol: )

It a long read, however, I find McNally's book very insightful. It makes one realize how unlikely it was that the Dead lasted as long as they did.

Phil: Searching for the Sound
McNally/Scrib: his book as MKaufman mentioned, I forget the title
Blair Jackson: Garcia
Steve Parrish: whatever his book is called. It's fairly new so not a lot of people have read it yet, but it's fascinating and a great read as well.


So that's my top 3 which I guess includes 4 books, now that I think about it. :lol:

Thanks. One of my favorites from back in the day is "Playing in the Band" by David Gans.

As tempting as this audio book might be, both you and The Stag could really benefit from reading a book or two.

I believe it's called "Home Before Daylight". Loved that one, lots of great stories from Parish. He's certainly had a long strange trip.

Since we are on the topic of books. I am well into Gregg Allmans book and was a little surprised to read that he wasn't very fond of Jerry. He also didn't even mention the 73' RFK shows with the Dead that I think are pretty good. He really loved the "doojee" though. Not a bad read so far. Anybody reading this??

Kinda funny that Jerry called him a narc way before he actually did narc on his buddy. I guess Jerry could tell.
