There have been rumors that The Grateful Dead may reunite this year in celebration of their 50th anniversary, and perhaps drummer Mickey Hart is hinting at that in his New Year’s greeting. He wrapped it up by writing, “The bird gave me the word… 2015 will be even better. Our long strange trip continues.”

On May 5th, the Dead’s other drummer, Bill Kreutzmann, will publish his autobiography, Deal. May 5th is the 50th anniversary of the Dead’s first show. They were still known as The Warlocks on May 5th, 1965, when they played Magoo’s Pizza in Menlo Park, California.
