    7 Jerry Garcia Side Projects: New Riders, Rainforest Band, Legion of Mary & More

    Today marks the 20th anniversary of the death of Jerry Garcia, and we're not going to pretend you don't know that he was perhaps the most influential member and guitarist of the Grateful Dead. But, what you probably didn't know, was that—like any good jam band member—he was involved with a number of other groups in his day. Here are seven of the other, more prominent groups that Garcia was a member of before, after and during his time with the Dead.

    The Mountain Goats Touring in Fall, 'Will Not Be Playing Rush'

    The Mountain Goats are hitting the road in support of its wrestling-themed album Beat The Champ but unfortunately, no—unlike the Insane Clown Posse, the folk-rockers won't be bringing actual grapplers on tour with them (at least as far as we know). If an odd, telegram-style message from frontman John Darnielle is any indication, the run will be called the "Trees Southeastern" tour, although it will hardly be limited to the Southeast.

    Grateful Dead's Bob Weir to Record an 'Album of Cowboy Songs'

    With the long-awaited Fare Thee Well shows now just a Fourth of July weekend memory, the Grateful Dead have wrapped up their live performances, for now.

The 67-year-old founding member of the Dead has now shifted his focus to crafting "an album of cowboy songs," offering an extensive lineup of musicians including songwriter Josh Ritter.

    Bob Dylan's Biggest Non-Newport Folk Festival Performances: Concert for Bangladesh, More

    Fans and promoters at the Newport Folk Festival in Rhode Island will spend the entire weekend celebrating the 50th anniversary of the occasion when Bob Dylan first took the stage with an electric guitar, thrilling some of the audience and alienating just as many, who felt betrayed by the folk icon taking a more rock 'n' roll approach to his genre. Given 50 years to think about it, and excellent albums such as Highway 61 Revisited as a result, the folks at Newport are feeling a bit more generous about what is now considered one of the most iconic live appearances of all time. It certainly goes down as the most momentous concert in Dylan's career, but don't think that he hasn't played a few other "big" shows in a career that stretches nearly 60 years. Here are a few other big live moments for The Bard.

    Monsanto Releases Rebuttal to Neil Young's 'Seeding Fear' Film; GMOs Good or Bad?

    Neil Young is known for latching onto certain causes from time to time, but his battle against Monsanto and genetically modified organisms (just plants in this case) has been raging for years. Not only did the rocker name his most recent album 'The Monsanto Years' and has now released a ten-minute short film detailing the dangers of big agribusiness, titled 'Seeding Fear.' Now the target company has stormed back, accusing the performer of letting his bias get out of control in the film.
