Rock Scully (born August 1, 1941 - died December 16, 2014) was the manager of The Grateful Dead from 1965 to 1985.

He is the co-author with David Dalton of the book Living With The Dead.

"Living in The Haight before and during the Summer of Love, Scully first saw the band play at one of Ken Kesey's Acid Tests under the name "The Warlocks". He signed on as the band's manager almost immediately. He started to book the band at small local venues like The Fillmore, a place where many bands such as Jefferson Airplane, Big Brother & The Holding Company, and Quicksilver Messenger Service got their start."



I loved the book, it really showed the inner-workings / dysfunctional family of the Grateful Deal.  I read it so quickly, I almost feel I need to go back to remember the whole story... one big piece was that Rock was the fall guy for the whole Rolling Stons / Hell's Angels at Alamont debacle.


his relationship with the Dead didn't end well...
