The Grateful Dead has produced over 400 songs with 30 albums over a 30 years career.
Do you know how many #1 hits they produced?
And yet, they have sold over 35 million albums and played 2,318 concerts.
It is estimated that they have played to 25 million more people than any other band.
Yet, in so much popularity, the masses didn’t get what it was they were trying to do.
This is what artists do. They choose to make a sound that isn’t appealing to everyone. Only to someone they were trying to change.
