Bill Kreutzmann To Pen His Memoirs

Bill Kreutzmann

As the only drummer to play with the Grateful Dead throughout the band’s long strange trip, Bill Kreutzmann is uniquely qualified to retell the band’s history. So it couldn’t be more appropriate that he has signed a publishing deal with St. Martins Press to release his memoirs.

The book – scheduled for release in 2015 – will focus on the 66-year-old drummer’s long relationship with the late Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia, although you can also expect plenty of anecdotes about such other ’60s icons as Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, and The Allman Brothers, according to Contact Music.
