ReeferCity Mourns Death of Grateful Dead Icon

ReeferCity Mourns Death of Grateful Dead Icon

It is a sad day here in Reefer City!

Of course, we are HUGE Deadheads over here.. ("Friend of the Devil is my personal fave, whats yours??) I am sorry to announce that the co-creator of the beloved Dead skull icon has passed away.  He was 76 years young and passed away in a car crash in Australia, where he lived.

The world has lost a happy eccentric man, LSD advocate Owsley Stanley.  If you're a younger Reefer City Citizen, let me give you a brief history lesson!  In the '60s, Stanley gave the Dead money to start their band!!  He was well known on the famous music scene, and there are a few songs that are based on his antics and lifestyle:

  • "Alice D Millionaire" by the Dead
  • Kid Charlemagne" Steely Dan

So, tonight, in honor of Stanley, roll one up and turn on some Dead!  RIP!
