The Warlocks were formed in Palo Alto at the end of 1964 when Jerry Garcia, Ron "Pigpen" McKernan, and Bob Weir-the original members of Mother McCree's Uptown Jug Champions-decided to "plug in" at the urging of McKernan. They added a rhythm section: Dana Morgan Jr. On bass and Bill Kreutzmann on drums. Their first performance was in May of 1965 at Magoo's Pizza in Menlo Park.
After a handful of performances, Phil Lesh replaced Dana Morgan.

Many of his photographs have become signature portraits of these musicians. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Photographic Images\Photographs".
