Fresh from the news that Aerosmith is going to be involved
with a new iteration of the Guitar Hero
franchise, jam band kings the Grateful Dead have cast their patchouli-caked lot with the rhythm rival: Rock Band
. The band that's the source of more bloodshot eyes than allergies and swimming pools combined will be giving up 18 tracks for download, including "Truckin'," "Uncle John's Band," "Touch of Grey," "Sugar Magnolia," and "Casey Jones."
It's not yet been confirmed if fans will sell their possessions and begin following you around the country if you download the tracks. We'll keep our fingers crossed.
