Less than a week after Shining Star helped us celebrate Jerry Garcia’s birth, Achilles Wheel was back to honor the anniversary of his passing.

GrooveSession: Remember When We Were Young, We Shone Like the Sun

We saw it coming from miles away. It was as predictable as an asteroid impact. No matter how prepared you might be, nothing can dampen the effect when it washes over you.
