Grateful Dead to reunite for Barack Obama?

And who will perform in place of Jerry Garcia?

The Grateful Dead may reunite in October, in an effort to promote the campaign of Barack Obama for President of the United States.

The legendary band will reportedly get back together on October 13 to raise money for the democrat’s campaign.

All four living original members will apparently play together — Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, Phil Lesh and Bill Kreutzmann, reports Fox News. The story says that Allman Brothers and Gov’t Mule man Warren Haynes will lead the band.

The original leader Jerry Garcia, died in 1995 after suffering a heart attack.

According to the story, the band will use the show as a test-run for a possible full tour next year.
