Through some random internet wandering, I discovered that some strange things were found inside Jerry Garcia’s body when it was autopsied. In case you don’t know, Jerry played guitar and sang for the Grateful Dead. His autopsy was similar to scientists opening the stomach of a Great White.
I also found out that Jerry Garcia’s organs were all screwed up from years of cigarettes and drug abuse. He had the forearms and fingers of an athlete, though.
Oh, the strange things found in his abdomen? A hotel key, a mascara brush, a bottle cap, and wait for it…. a pipe screen. He must have been sucking really hard on that pipe to pull that screen right through.
Here’s the autopsy re-enacted with a doll and some scraps from the butcher. http://www.chickenhead.com/stuff/jerry/index.html
