Jerry Garcia Introduces Line Of Neckties





Jerry Garcia, who has a passion for painting and studied at the San Francisco Art Institute, introduces a line of neckties he designed.

Garcia, who studied painting at the San Francisco Art Institute, has been dabbling in art for quite some time, often working on drawings and paintings when he isn't making music. Neckties provide a unique canvas for his work, which isn't Dead-issue tie dye, but abstract designs.

That Garcia has never been spotted wearing a necktie doesn't seem to matter (his signature look is jeans and a black T-shirt) - this is premium silk crepe neckwear, selling for $28.50.

The line is sold at Bloomingdale's and does very well, making not only an artistic statement but a cultural one as well, kind of like putting a deadhead sticker on a Cadillac Bill Clinton is spotted wearing one, as is Al Gore.

In 1993, jazz great Miles Davis follows suit with his own line of ties (some of which are kind of blue). Unlike Garcia, Davis is known for his fashion sense.

1953 Bebe Buell is born in Portsmouth, Virginia. Though she later rejects the description, she becomes one of the most famous "groupies" of all time, hooking up with a host of stars including Todd Rundgren, to whom she is married from 1972 to 1979. Rundgren brings up her daughter Liv - later revealed to be the biological child of Aerosmith's Steven Tyler.

1965 Igor Khoroshev (keyboardist for Yes) is born in Moscow, Russia (then part of the Soviet Union).

2014 Johnny Winter plays the Cahors Blues Festival in France. It's his last performance, as he dies two days later.
