Brent Mydland, the shy but multitalented keyboard player for the Grateful Dead for the past 11 years, was found dead in the bedroom of his Lafayette home yesterday morning.

But when Mydland succeeds in his writing, he proves that he can provide freshness and originality within the framework of a group that has been working together for nearly a quarter of a century.

 dead musicians: Brent Mydland   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Despite being often referred to as 'the new guy', Brent Mydland was the longest standing keyboardist of Grateful Dead (11 years).
Throughout his career, Mydland was known for his drug use and alcohol abuse.
Mydland died of a drug overdose after taking a speedball (a mixture of cocaine and heroin) at his home on "My Road" in Lafayette, California, on July 26, 1990, shortly after completing the band's summer tour.

 Grateful Dead - Dick's Picks 9 - Madison Square Garden (Album Review)
After the untimely death of keyboardist Brent Mydland on July 26, 1990, the Grateful Dead kept right on moving.
Vince Welnick quickly was named as Mydland's replacement, and the band's fall tour of the U.S. began promptly in early September and continued with a three-week tour of Europe in October.
In person, it felt like this show drew heavily from Brent's death and was a mourning of sorts for both the band and the audience.

Brent Mydland's "Tons Of Steel" I thought was a great song.
Mydland had more songs on that one, but I think he was overrepresented; then again, maybe that was necessary, as Garcia's stuff on that disc was pretty weak.

Brent was awesome and I bet half of the deadheads did not realize this until Vince arrived.

 Glide Magazine Reviews - Grateful Dead
By 1989, Mydland had found the exact balance of lead, harmony, counterpoint and foil to make himself a galvanizing force when he needed to be and not merely an accompanist or colorist.
Watching Brent and Jerry interact on the DVD is giddy confirmation that Brent had a great thing going, and also an ominous reminder that he would be gone a year later.
Mydland's weapon of choice is fierce, sheety organ, and Garcia matches him with a trilly, Allman Brothers-style buildup.

Mydland wrote two songs for the ten-track effort: "Musician (It's Not an Easy Life)" and "Climbing." Silver opened for the likes of the Doobie Brothers, Seals & Crofts, and Three Dog Night.
Early on, Mydland stayed in the background, providing both vocal and keyboard harmonies.
A replacement was found yet again, this time in Vince Welnick (with temporary duties given to Bruce Hornsby) who survived the fatal position until Jerry Garcia died of a heart attack in 1995, ironically enough after coming back from that summer's tour.

Mydland recorded and mastered a solo album, but it was never released.
Brent also sang background vocals with two other members of Silver (John Batdorf and Greg Coller) on "Crazy River" and "Dreams Of Mexico" on Eric Andersen's 1975 record "Sweet Surprise." These tracks are not on the compilation "Eric Andersen: Collection" that includes five other tracks from that album.
The Library of Congress lists one additional Brent solo composition "Fire" (1987), but I don't know of any recording of this.

Brents first note is way better then having to listen to Donna shouting over the Boys during any vocals.
And Im sure Brent was a very nice and talented fellow, but this for me marks the downfall of the band, Brent and his playing represent all that was lousy and weak about the 80's, the synthee tacky sound, the band was far better off without.
In Brent tunes, it's easy to actually question, which band is actually playing, not obviously the unique comodity of the Grateful Dead.

 The Music Box: Grateful Dead - Go to Nassau (Album Review)
By 1979, the winds of change were stirring once again in Grateful Dead-land, and this, of course, manifested itself most noticeably with the departure of Keith and Donna Godchaux and the addition of keyboardist Brent Mydland.
The impact of this reformation was felt almost immediately as the band’s energy level, attention to detail, and interest in sonic exploration returned to levels not felt so consistently in some time.
The opening Jack Straw was nothing short of magical — as a majority of them tended to be — and the subsequent Franklin’s Tower was exultantly boundless, while including teases of both Goin’ Down the Road Feelin’ Bad and China Cat Sunflower before coming to its proper conclusion.

Until then, Welnick had spent five years covering keyboard and harmony vocal parts after Dead keyboardist Brent Mydland died of a drug overdose in 1990.
Born February 21, 1951, in Phoenix, AZ, Welnick was still a teenager when he parlayed his keyboard-playing skills into an actual band (the Beans) with Bill Spooner (guitar, vocals) and Rick Anderson (bass).
When yet another Grateful Dead keyboardist died (founding member Ron "Pigpen" McKernan and Keith Godchaux both preceded Mydland in both the gig and death), Welnick auditioned for the spot and got it.
