While watching the concert on TV the other night, I noticed a subtle yet appropriate tribute to one of the performers that made The Fillmore the legendary venue it is today.  In this photo, sitting right behind Mike Campbell on top of a guitar amp is a cool looking Jerry Garcia doll.

Garcia and The Grateful Dead played The Fillmore and The Fillmore West countless times in their career.  One of their most famous live albums is Fillmore West 1969, a three-CD album composed of selections from four concerts performed at Fillmore West.  Petty often covers The Dead’sFriend of the Devil” live in concert as a tribute to Garcia.  Here’s another screen cap of Campbell & Petty with “The Jerry Doll” looming behind them.
