My favorite story of a band that few knew about and where worried about ever getting recognized happened at the Monterey Music Festival in 1967. One failing – they had no destructive tendencies. The performer who preceded the band was Jimi Hendrix. He played great and afterward burned his guitar. The performers who followed the band were The Who, who smashed most of their instruments. What is the name of the band in the middle?

The Grateful Dead.
