The Grateful Dead’s Jerry Garcia gets animated in PBS Digital Studios’ latest “Blank on Blank” video project. In this 1988 interview with reporter Joe Smith, the musician recalls his band’s name change from The Warlocks to the Grateful Dead, and describes what it was like to go to one of Ken Kesey’s LSD-fueled “Acid Tests” parties in the 1960s.
