WATCH! Highlights From “Move Me Brightly”: A Tribute To Jerry Garcia!
A milestone birthday plus a milestone event anniversary? You've got "Move Me Brightly," a film based around the historic musical event of the same name that celebrated Grateful Dead's legendary Jerry Garcia on what would have been his 70th birthday last year. The date also marked the 10th anniversary of the annual "Jerry Day" in Garcia's hometown of San Francisco. Of all the Dead events happening around the city that day, none were closer to Garcia than the all-star gathering of musicians, friends and friends at the "Move Me Brightly" tribute concert at Dead member Bob Weir's TRI Studios, an epic five-hour concert that was streamed live right here on Yahoo Music—and we have highlights from the show for you to watch right now!
The original stream began with a series of interviews with some of the biggest names in music telling stories and paying tribute to Garcia. Interviewed by actor Luke Wilson, Grateful Dead members Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann recounted experiences with the Dead, artists Carlos Santana, Sammy Hagar, Perry Farrell chatted about Garcia's influence, along with personal stories from Garcia's brother Tiff, ex-wife Carolyn "Mountain Girl" Garcia and three daughters.
The monster line-up of musicians young and classic, who were shuffled in and out throughout the show, included Dead bassist Phil Lesh and vocalist Donna Jean Godchaux, Mike Gordon of Phish, drummer Joe Russo and keyboardist Jeff Chimenti of Further, Harper Simon (son of Paul Simon), drummer Chris Tomson of Vampire Weekend, Hold Steady members Craig Finn and Tad Kubler, Josh Kaufman and Sam Cohen of Yellowbirds (who previously joined Weir for "The Bridge Session"), Cass McCombs, Black Crowes keyboardist Adam McDougall, Cardinals' Neal Casal and Jon Graboff, Jason Roberts, Jim Lauderdale and Jonathan Wilson.
