In 1995, the death of Jerry Garcia created a ripple that sent shock waves through its extended music community. To this day you won’t find a group of fans still reeling from the effects. Since the turn of the century a movie about his life has been in the works but it is finally about to see the light of day. Phillip Seymour Hoffman has signed on to play the enigmatic guitar hero, will center on the final 5 years of his life which were filled with far more turmoil than publicly told before. Garcia began to live a solitary existence. Few knew he was on the verge of leaving the Grateful Dead because of the combined pressure of the public eye and his addiction to heroin. Many fans will see a portrait painted of a man they felt they had come to know personally but will more than likely walk away shocked at how depraved and selfish his life had become to those closest to him. Slated to begin shooting this fall, it has a tentative release date for January of 2011 in time for Oscar season.
