DEATH DON'T HAVE NO MERCY: While the song "He's Gone" was inspired by Mickey Hart's father's embezzlement from the band, band members would often dedicate it to the recently deceased. For instance, during a week in May, 1981, two performances of the song were dedicated to individuals who shared the first name of the Dead's rhythm guitarist. One had died of starvation, and the other was a revolutionary musician who succumbed to cancer. Name EITHER OF THESE memorialized individuals.
Bobby Sands, Bob Marley
