"Even though most San Franciscan's considered The Grateful Dead to be the hometown musical heroes, it wasn't until Rolling Stone Magazine No. 40 that (co-founder) Jann Wenner featured the band in any meaningful way. For their portraits, the band members and their managers came to my Belvedere Street studio where I photographed them one by one, simply against a plain background, in the manner of one of my heroes, Richard Avedon. It was also the day that Jerry Garcia openly flashed me his hand with the missing digit in a photograph which has subsequently achieved iconic status, one which I call 'Jerry waving.' " - Baron Wolman
