2015 marks the Grateful Dead's 50th anniversary, and the band kicked off its series of farewell concerts with appearances at the May 14 Dear Jerry: Celebrating the Music of Jerry Garcia concert at Merriweather Post Pavilion. All four surviving bandmembers—Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Bill Kreutzmann, and Mickey Hart—performed. Dr. Bob was a special VIP guest of Jerry Garcia's widow, Carolyn "Mountain Girl" Garcia. He brought along books from his library and other gifts for Jerry's family and other performers.
