Jerome "Jerry" Garcia was a singer-songwriter and guitarist. He was one of the founders of the famous band the Greatful Dead which rose to prominence during the 1960s. He was best known for being the band's lead guitarist and vocalist. He was also viewed by many people to be the leader and unofficial spokesman for the group, but Garcia disavowed that role. As well as being part of the Grateful Dead, Garcia worked on a variety of other projects including the Jerry Garcia Band, Legion of Mary and the New Riders of the Purple Stage.
