Relive 50 Years of the Grateful Dead in Bob Weir’s New Netflix Doc — Watch It With Your Dad!


The Grateful Dead is celebrating their 50th anniversary this year. But before the band's surviving members reunite at Soldier Field this summer (and maybe for a tour with John Mayer and Phish's Trey Anastasio), thier founding member, Bob Weir, will release a career retrospective in the form of a Netflix documentary. The Other One: The Long, Strange Trip of Bob Weir promises a look at the the band's history, how Weir went from a 16-year-old kid with a guitar to a rock-and-roll legend, and Weir's relationship with Jerry Garcia. It'll also include archival footage that fans, somehow, have never seen. In other words, it's essential viewing for any Deadhead. The doc hits Netflix May 22.
