Footnotes

  • "During the 1970s, Jerry Garcia used these little babies a lot. Ram Rod Shurtliff [longtime G.D. crew member] kept one with Jerry's stage gear on tour for hotel and dressing room practice sessions and warm-up. Jerry had me pick this one up in San Rafael [CA] years ago for use at home and it ended up at our shared house in Hepburn Heights [also in San Rafael]."
