50th Anniversary for Kerouac’s On The Road

Share this post:

This year is the 50th anniversary for Jack Kerouac’s “On the Road.” As I discovered in crawling some blogs, Kerouac had pretensions on French aristocratic lineage, although apparently his name is Breton. I don’t know about you, but there’s always been of On the Road in me. Happily I can satisfy the urge with the occasional random road trip that we, as a family, undertake (as we did in Turkey this summer). Felicitations a Kerouac… French or American, I must say that I can still relate. Not alone in my adulation for Kerouac, I note that he was hugely influential in Jerry Garcia’s life. And, for those of you who haven’t read the biography by McNally, “A Long Strange Trip,” Kerouac’s life was instrumental in many ways for the Dead, including the wonderful, “On the Road Again.” I will post a live performance of that song.
