Known for their live performances of lengthy instrumental jams and for their devoted fan base known as“Deadheads,” the Grateful Dead were the pioneering Godfathers of the jam band world. They fused elements of rock, folk, country, jazz, bluegrass, blues, gospel, and psychedelic rock. Their various influences were distilled into a diverse and psychedelic whole.
One of the best known designs from the Grateful Dead were the Trippy Bears. As it turns out, the cuddly bears aren’t really dancing. According to Owsley, the chief inspiration of the design, the bears’ stride is a high-stepping march. Some have theorized that the colorful chorus line of lovable teddy bears is also partly inspired by Jerry Garcia’s“Papa Bear” nickname.
