LONG STRANGE TRIP: THE UNTOLD STORY OF THE GRATEFUL DEAD (2017)
For 30 years, the Grateful Dead were the most unlikely success story in rock and roll. At the peak of their popularity, they were the highest-grossing concert act in America, but they did it by breaking all the rules.
The band is put together and commits itself to constant change.

It’s not clear where the fans end and the band begins.
4. Act IV – Who's In Charge Here?
Jerry wants the Grateful Dead to have no leader, no rules… and no purpose. Trouble ensues.
