On May 26, a four-hour Grateful Dead documentary titled Long Strange Trip will premiere on Amazon Prime Video. The film was directed by Amir Bar-Lev and counts Martin Scorsese as an executive producer. Entertainment Weekly recently shared a clip from the long-awaited documentary.
In the clip below we see Grateful Dead co-founding guitarist Jerry Garcia and bassist Phil Lesh discussing how the band got its name. The pair talk about how they didn’t want to use their original name of The Warlocks since another group had the moniker. Garcia cracked open a dictionary and the rest is history.
