The Grateful Dead gave what it says will be its last group performance Sunday, playing to some 70,000 singing, dancing and tearful fans in Chicago's Soldier Field.The four surviving members of the band ended their 50-year-run this weekend with three Chicago concerts. The shows come 20 years after the death of lead guitarist Jerry Garcia, who played his last show in the nation's third-largest city in 1995 .Known for their poetic lyrics and constant improvisation, which can turn a three-minute song into an 18-minute experiment, the Grateful Dead emerged from the San Francisco Bay area to become one of the longest lasting and most influential bands of the era.Inspired by blues, bluegrass, country and jazz, the band became the model for groups such as Phish, Blues Traveler and others in the "jam band" movement.
