Continuing the legacyEdit

The Other Ones continued the musical legacy of the Grateful Dead after Jerry Garcia died in 1995, playing many Grateful Dead songs and utilizing a similar jam band style that emphasized musical improvisation. The name of the band was taken from the title of the Grateful Dead song "That's It for the Other One", from 1968's Anthem of the Sun.

AlbumEdit

In 1999, The Other Ones released The Strange Remain, a two-disc CD recorded live during their 1998 Furthur Festival tour.
