Jerry Garcia "Waving"
Jerry Garcia, July 1968: "The Grateful Dead were San Francisco's band, there was no question about it. It was the band that everybody loved locally. As much as they cared about the Jefferson Airplane and Quicksilver and the other bands, there was something about the Dead. You could see, over the years, the affection that that band created among their fans and their followers, right? So we were so surprised that it took Jann [Wenner, publisher of Rolling Stone] so long to do a major story about the Dead and put them on the cover.
Jerry Garcia, as you can see, is happy here. He was a happy guy, as he often was; he was more happy than not. And it was so interesting: When I made a print of this photo, I kept trying to figure out how he did that with his finger. And I kept trying to do it with my finger to emulate what he did -- I couldn't make it happen. It wasn't until about two years later that I heard the whole story about how he had lost his finger, that it was not there. And apparently this is the first time that he raised his hand like that and openly showed people. It became the logo for the Jerry Garcia website and his estate. I call this one "Jerry, Waving." - Baron Wolman

Baron Wolman Original Photo - Jerry Garcia Waving
"In July, 1969, Jerry Garcia, along with the rest of the Grateful Dead, posed individually in my Haight-Ashbury studio for a Rolling Stone cover story shoot. This maybe one of the first times Jerry flashed his missing digit so openly and without reservation. Even long time Grateful Dead fans are still surprised to see that it's gone. The photo of Jerry is one of my favorites. It is a tribute to him and the era. The picture was taken at a moment in time when so many of us were filled with excitement and innocence and hope."
