Best known for leading rock group the Grateful Dead into the heady realms of counterculture mythology, lead guitarist Jerry Garcia was occasionally involved in feature and documentary films, not only making cameo appearances, but also directing a feature or two. His last directorial effort was So Far (1987). Garcia passed away of heart failure while undergoing heroin detoxification at a Marin County drug rehab center. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
