The Dead were renowned for amazing live performances. Strangely, the biggest musical festival of the 1960s ' Woodstock ' was not one of them. The Dead played under harrowing weather conditions and were literally shocked by their own instruments. 960 1280

The concert hastily organized by the Rolling Stones in December 1969 at Altamont Speedway (pictured here in a recent photo) proved to be another disaster for the Dead. The band was scheduled to perform, but declined to play due to the increasing violence spawned by the Hell's Angels who were hired to provide "security" at the venue. 960 1280

The Grateful Dead made many appearances the famous Fillmore East club in New York in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Several live albums were subsequently released of their performances there. 960 1280

The Grateful Dead's show at Cornell University's Barton Hall on May 8, 1977, is considered by many aficionados to be perhaps their greatest performance ever. The show became legendary after an audience member's tape and a high-quality soundboard recording began circulating among fans. 960 1280
