Another seminal work on the subject is John Atwill's "Manufacturing the Deadhead", into the psyop of the Grateful Dead, who arguably were the main vector for the propagation of the most destructive drug of the 1960s, LSD. The Greatful Dead were closely connected to the deep state, most of them were freemasons, some with intelligence backgrounds. Jerry Garcia was a hardcore kabbalist, Bob Weir was a Bohemian Grove regular.

I saw a lot of Grateful Dead concerts back in my day, and I highly doubt that Jerry was a kabbalist. David Kemper, who was Jerry's drummer for years in the Jerry Garcia Band, states that Jerry used to financially donate frequently to the late TV pastor Gene Scott. If anything, Jerry was in the "spritual but not religous" camp (at least in my opinion)
Bob Weir is a great rhythm player. However, he is dyslexic and has been invited - and attended - various Bohemian Grove events. In my opinion, he's not cerebral enough to be part of an intellectual brain trust. That being said, I am sure that he was around these groups and, at the very least, listened in on their machinations.
The Grateful Dead were permitted to flourish because of one reason - their culture could produce irreperable damage via heavy drug use. Therefore, a portion of Americans would kill themelves via suicide - masked as hedonistic free love and universal peace, etc. The government clearly allowed this to occur from the band's inception (the LSD acid tests of the 1960s) to the very end (playing sold-out stadium shows in Washington DC, just minutes from the White House).
As with all aspects of popular culture, you're not allowed to become famous by accident. You have to serve the cabal in some way, shape or form. The musicians may not be aware of this until the very end...or not at all.
