Steve Parish has been a primary member of The Grateful Dead family for 50 years. Steve first joined the band as a roadie in 1969. It wasn’t long before he was Jerry Garcia’s trusted gear handler and began to manage The Jerry Garcia Band. Over the years Parish and Garcia forged an unbreakable bond. Steve was Jerry’s best man at his wedding and was at his bedside when Garcia fell into a coma in 1986. Parish was the last friend to see Jerry before his untimely death in 1995.
Steve has continued to maintain his relationships with the rest of The Grateful Dead family. As Weir once said to him “Blood is thicker than water but we have is thicker than blood.
