The Dead Live on the Music Chart

From the Book Standard:

The Dead Live on the Music Chart
October 25, 2005
By Patrick J. Eves

The Grateful Dead keep truckin' like the do-dah man, even ten years after front man Jerry Garcia's death of a heart attack. The legendary psychedelic jam band—which spawned a rabid fan-base collectively known as Deadheads, who followed the band from show to show—is best known for its marathon live sets. Deadheads who miss the shows have been lining up to buy The Complete Annotated Grateful Dead Lyrics, available just in time to celebrate The Dead's 40th anniversary. The book remains at No. 1 on the Music Chart after debuting at the top last week. David Dodd, founder of the Annotated Grateful Dead Lyrics website, comments on all 184 songs here and has appeared on the nationally syndicated radio show Dead Hour to promote the book. In other Dead news, bassist Phil Lesh scored a hit earlier this year with a memoir about his 30 years with the band. Searching for the Sound has sold 39,000 units so far, peaking at No. 4 on the Biography & Autobiography Chart for the week ending April 24, 2005.
