Bob Weir. A founding member of the Grateful Dead, Bob Weir's cultural and musical legacy is that of a brilliant guitarist and songwriter who grew up in one of the most lasting bands of the 1960s. Playing with the Grateful Dead until their dissolution following the death of Jerry Garcia in 1995, Weir has also made his musical homes in Ratdog, the Other Ones, Bobby and the Midnites, and Kingfish, a successful West Coast band that Weir started with his longtime friend and fellow Amicus board member Matthew Kelly. Although his life has been consumed by music, Weir has spent a good deal of time as a social activist. He is a board member of the Seva foundation (which fights blindness in Asia and South America ) and has worked with Greenpeace and the Rainforest Action Network as well as the Dead’s own Rex Foundation. He has not only performed countless benefits but also given deeply of his time, including lobbying Congress on various forestry issues. An enthusiastic and knowledgeable member of the Amicus foundation, Bob Weir brings his insight and passion to Amicus and its many projects. He is married to the former Natascha Muenter; they have two young daughters, Monet and Chloe.
