During the counterculture era, he gained to notoriety as the group's primary guitarist and vocalist, and was also regarded by some as the band's spokesman. The Grateful Dead took over the hearts of music fans not just in America, but all across the world for nearly three decades. Jerry Garcia established a name for himself as a co-founder of the world-famous musical group, but he also got involved in other ventures, the most significant of which was the Jerry Garcia Band. He had a close friendship with bluegrass mandolinist David Grisman, with whom he frequently cooperated to play. Garcia had a dark side, despite his brilliance and talent: he was a heavy smoker and drug user. As a diabetic, his health deteriorated in the 1990s as a result of his addictions. He died of a heart attack in 1995, while he was only 53 years old.
