Famous Jerry Garcia Quotes


Jerry Garcia was one of rock’s all time great players. He had a style that crossed over multiple genres and was distinct all on its own. You could always spot a Jerry solo. He had a very fluid style that could take a song, or especially a live show, to the next level. Below are a few quotes from a musician that is sorely missed in the rock and roll community–

“To me, the lame part of the Sixties was the political part, the social part. The real part was the spiritual part.”

“I think it’s too bad that everybody’s decided to turn on drugs, I don’t think drugs are the problem. Crime is the problem. Cops are the problem. Money’s the problem. But drugs are just drugs.”

“If we had any nerve at all, if we had any real balls as a society, or whatever you need, whatever quality you need, real character, we would make an effort to really address the wrongs in this society, righteously.”

“The alternate media are becoming important and viable alternatives to playing live. Records, videos, that kind of thing. They’re going to start to count for something. Because there’s only a limited amount of us-time available to us.”

“Our strong suit is what we do, and our audience.”
