One of rock’n’rolls most fantastical stories is being brought to the big screen with a bio-pic about the Grateful Dead.

The acid fuelled band’s long-time roadie Steve Parish's 2004 book ‘Home Before Daylight’ is being adapted by director Michael Garais.

The film, which will cover the band’s history from their inception in the sixties to frontman Jerry Garcia’s death in 1995, has the backing of guitarist Bob Weir.

Parish himself says, “There has never been and there will probably never be another cast of characters like the Grateful Dead."
