About Rosie McGee

I was so lucky that my parents chose San Francisco when we arrived in the U.S. as French immigrants. How could they know that their sheltered younger daughter would grow up to rebel beyond their wildest fears, running off to join the circus of the Bay Area's most notorious band? - Rosie McGee Her candid photographs of the Dead have appeared in books, documentaries and publications including the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and Rolling Stone magazine. Rosie McGee loves being back in the San Francisco Bay Area after a 20-year absence. She has a counterculture son living in Eugene, OR: he had no need to rebel.
