He was a Grateful Dead icon, and for many, the Dead embodied the peace-and-love Sixties during their 30-year rock-and-roll reign. So it might've seemed a bit odd when Bob Weir, the band's longtime rhythm guitarist, was recently asked his favorite sport. Football, he said. "It's a great game to watch," said Weir, 58. "Everybody has a neat and precise role or assignment. Then the ball is snapped, and it's pandemonium." It's hard to think of a better analogy for the kind of show his current band, Ratdog, now on nationwide tour, has been making for the past 10 years.

Bob Weir came of age on stage with the Grateful Dead. He poured the sting of friends lost into his microphone and guitar strings and learned to take life one day at a time, show by show. The road seemed neverending for Weir and the Dead; it stretched out before them for 30 years. Each show was a journey in itself - fans and musicians reaching psychedelically toward the next ethereal plane. Hallucinogenic experiments and improvisational jams, nearly constant tours and transient followers carried the band into the American mythos.

TERRA ALTA, W.Va. - It's an odd place for a business district, this quarter-mile stretch of gravel road on a rolling, 700-acre farm in the mountains of West Virginia. But tent after tent adorned with handmade signs - "Sunshine Octopus Creations," "Knot Just Hemp," "Grateful Dan Imports" - and the men, women and kids poring over their wares testify to the lure and staying power of a man none of them ever met but that all feel they knew like a brother. It hardly seems like a decade since Jerry Garcia, good-time maestro and founding member of the Grateful Dead, died of a heart attack at age 53. The 3,000 or so fellow travelers here for the 20th Annual Jerry Garcia Birthday Bash are mourning Jerry the way Deadheads celebrated his music for 30-plus years - gathering to soak up tunes, trade tapes and stories, and thrill to the feeling that there's a life to be lived on the margins of "straight" society.

Many of the country's founding fathers, including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and James Madison, frequented the establishment. This Sunday, there will be costumed tours of the buildings and dances from the 18th century along with refreshments.
