Paul Grushkin talks about Dead Letters: The Very Best Grateful Dead Fan Mail ($29.99). Grushkin presents an authorized collection of brilliantly illustrated letters and envelopes from Deadheads reflecting on concerts and requesting tickets, saved by the Grateful Dead from their earliest days. Grushkin is a widely regarded rock historian. Eileen Law is the "head Dead Head" and liason to all the Grateful Dead fans (the Dead Heads), on behalf of the band, from Grateful Dead Productions. Steven Marcus is the founding Manager of Grateful Dead Ticket Sales (1983 - 1995). Frankie Accardi is the current Manager of Grateful Dead Ticket Sales Too (Grateful Dead ticket sales 1995 - present, following Jerry Garcia's passing). She handles much of the ticketing for Grateful Dead-related tours such as Furthur (Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, etc.)
Dead Letters is the fully authorized portrayal of the Grateful Dead according to the world's most devoted fan base: Deadheads. Beginning in their earliest days, the Grateful Dead saved tens of thousands of letters sent to them by Deadheads reflecting on the spectacular concerts they'd attended and requesting tickets.
