Weir and Garcia proceeded to play music together the rest of the evening then decided to form a band together. They formed Mother McCree's Uptown Jug Champions, which morphed into The Warlocks and eventually became the Grateful Dead as their style became significantly influenced by the music of The Beatles. Weir played rhythm guitar and sang a large portion of the lead vocals throughout the long (30-year) career of 'The Dead', as the became known.

Weir went on to release his first solo album in 1972 and subsequently play in other bands, including reformations of bands with the Grateful Dead's former members. In 1994, he was inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Grateful Dead.
