Keith Godchaux

I'm celebrating Keith Godchaux's birthday today - it's not actually until July 19 - because I have four people on the 19th. I'm putting Keith first because the anniversary of his death, which I also note on my blog, is on July 21st. So this gives a bit more space between them.

Those of you who don't know Keith Godchaux are definitely not Dead Heads. Keith joined the Grateful Dead in 1971 and stayed through 1978.


7/19/48 - 7/21/80

This video includes his wife, Donna Godchaux on lead vocals. She was also a member of the Grateful Dead.
