Everything Eventually Becomes A Product, Grateful Dead Edition

by evanmcmurry

Movement–>Business–>Racket:

But Irsay seems mellow; a couple of days ago, he announced that he would place his collection of rock-and-roll memorabilia, including Tiger, a guitar played by Jerry Garcia that he bought a decade ago for just under a million bucks, on display at the Indiana State Museum under the title “Chaos Is a Friend of Mine: Cultural Icons from the Jim Irsay Collection.”

Who’s Jim Isray? “The Grateful Dead obsessive and second-generation multi-millionaire who owns the [Indianapolis Colts],” naturally. Cuz nothing says “chaos aficionado” like “second-generation multi-millionaire.”
