I was pushing the grocery cart down the magazine aisle at Stop & Shop when a music magazine cover rang out to me.
I didn’t hesitate to reach for the magazine when I saw the cover of Guitar Aficionado. The Deadhead in me gingerly placed the magazine in my shopping cart. I said to myself as I headed to the checkout, “I have my idea for a music blog post this weekend.” 🙂
Jerry Garcia‘s Rosebud guitar is pictured inside the magazine. An American beauty of a guitar that Don Irwin, guitar luthier custom-built for him. Jerry Garcia considered Rosebud Don Irwin’s masterpiece. One look will tell you why.
