This Grateful Dead tee dates back to 1982 and has a ton of life left. In true eighties style it's loaded with amazing graphics, soft cotton blend, and raglan quarter sleeves. Super comfy and easy on the eyes.
The iconic Blue Rose imagery actually comes from the concert poster for the 1978 New Years show at Winterland in San Francisco, and featured the Grateful Dead, New Riders, and Purple Sage. The event was monumental in that it marked the end of an era- Winterland was set to close shortly after. Stanley Mouse and Alton Kelley were the creative forces behind this design.
The Grateful Dead are best known for being key players in 1960s counterculture movement, and highly established rock n roll icons. This is proven in their career achievements. Rolling Stone ranks the band at no.57 on their list of 100 Greatest Artists of All Time. They've also been awarded the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, got inducted into the famous Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and are in the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress.
Founding members of the band are Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Ron "Pigpen" McKernan, Phil Lesh, and Bill Kreutzmann. Their legacy carries tremendous weight thanks to everlasting contributions to rock music, dedicated fans known as Deadheads, and awesome collectibles and memorabilia like this vintage t-shirt.
Fits like a modern unisex adult large. Raglan quarter sleeves, double sided graphic.
