Having heard it on the news and from the hotline, I guess it's official.
Here's what the hotline has to say...

"The wheel is turning and you can't slow down,
You can't let go and you can't hold on,
You can't go back and you can't stand still...

"After four months of heartfelt consideration, the
remaining members of the band met yesterday and
and concluded that the long, strange trip of the
unique beast known as the Grateful Dead is over.

"Individuallly and in various combinations the members
will undoubtedly continue to make music with different
names and structure...

"Mindful of their partners in this venture, the Deadheads,
they want to remind them that the music, values, and spirit
of this marvelous shared journey endure.
