If you’re unable to make it to the “Fare Thee Well” concerts marking both the 50th Anniversary of acclaimed rock band The Grateful Dead and the band’s last few concerts together, fear not. Netflix is celebrating the milestone anniversary, too, with an original documentary feature chronicling the life of band member John Weir. 

“The Other One: The Long Strange Trip of Bob Weir” is directed by Mike Fleiss (“The Bachelor,” “God Bless Ozzy Osbourne”), produced by Marc Weingarten (“God Bless Ozzy Osbourne”) and EP’d by Martin Hilton (“The Bachelor”) and Justin Kreutzmann (“In the Attic with Pete Townshend and Friends”). It follows Weir’s life and journey as a member of The Grateful Dead with interviews from family, friends, colleagues and bandmates. 

The documentary had its world premiere at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival and will be released exclusively on Netflix May 22. Watch the trailer up top, and check out the poster below:
