KQED Life: Sat, Dec 13, 2003 -- 9:00 PM

This program celebrates the last concert at this rock and roll palace and captures the energy and spirit of the 60s and 70s. On New Years Eve 1978, the Grateful Dead played to a standing room only crowd of 5400 fans. Dubbed Winterland's house band, they performed from midnight until 6am, including 3 encores. The band plays some of their favorite tunes including Sugar Magnolia, Fire on the Mountain, Ramble on Rose, Good Lovin' and encore performances of Casey Jones and Johnny B. Goode. Interspersed throughout the concert, drummer Mickey Hart and rhythm guitarist and vocalist Bob Weir talk about the band's favorite Winterland moments. This concert was originally broadcast live by KQED, and is the only recorded concert video of the Grateful Dead produced in the 70s. All 24 audio tracks are being remixed for optimum sound enhancement. The Grateful Dead is made up of: Jerry Garcia: Guitar and Vocals; Donna Jean Godchaux: Vocals; Keith Godchaux: Keyboards, Vocals; Mickey Hart: Drums; Bill Kreutzmann: Drums; Phil Lesh: Electric Bass, Vocals; Bob Weir: Rhythm Guitar, Vocals.
