At age four, while the family was vacationing, two-thirds of Garcia's right middle finger was accidentally cut off. Garcia was given the chore of steadying wood while his elder brother chopped, when he inadvertently put his finger in the way of the falling axe.

Garcia later confided that he often used it to his advantage in his youth, showing it off to other children in his neighborhood.


Gone but not forgotten. 
The music lives on.

What's one of your favorite songs?
