New Grateful Dead site

May 30, 2007

I wish I had the breaking news with this, but TechCrunch is the first to report the new Dead.net website.

At their peak, rock legends “The Grateful Dead” attracted an estimated community of 40,000 self-proclaimed “Deadheads” trailing them as they toured the country. The movement had originally spawned from fans meeting at concerts and networking on mailing lists. Mailing lists turned digital with the launch of Dead.net, which will relaunch in the next 24 hours as a full blown social network.

The new version of Dead.net was created on the Drupal content management platform and features extensive archives cataloging Grateful Dead history, songs, photos, memorabilia, and shows, indexed and searchable by tags. Dead users will be able to participate in forums, upload their own photos, and bookmark concerts and shows they have attended. Fans will also be treated to exclusive free mp3 show downloads.

Gotta love the Good Ol’ Grateful Dead
