Jerry Garcia's image lives on.Comment on this story
The late Grateful Dead guitarist can now be seen in his last music video, a remake of "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes."Starting Friday, the video was being shown before the movie, "Smoke," starring Harvey Keitel and William Hurt and playing at 98 theaters nationwide.
The video was recorded in San Francisco in April for the movie's soundtrack. It features Garcia with the Jerry Garcia Band and "Smoke" co-star Ashley Judd.
"Working with Jerry Garcia on `Smoke' was like taking lessons from a great music teacher," said the film's director, Wayne Wang.
"He was equally passionate about rock, blues, jazz, country and classical music. He loved to talk about music, and illustrated everything with his playing. It was an honor to be his student," Wang said.
