“They all have a story behind them.” – David Lemieux, Grateful Dead Archivist
David Lemieux has been the official archivist for the Grateful Dead for 23 years and has been listening to the Dead since ’84—he still remembers the first time. Living in British Columbia, Canada, Lemieux can also be referred to as the legacy manager for the band, meaning he keeps an eye on things to make sure they stay, “within the Grateful Dead sensibility.”
