    RIP Robert Hunter

    Poet and Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter died Monday night at age 78. Rest in peace.
    Can this be the swan song? The final elbow?

    Listened to a couple of GD and Garcia records lately. He was a great lyricist !

    RIP Robert. Early Dead music and lyrics were excellent.

    Twenty degrees of solitude
    Twenty degrees in all
    All the dancing kings & wives
    Assembled in the hall
    Lost is a long & lonely time
    Fairy Sybil flying
    All along the all along
    The mountains of the Moon
    Macht das ohr auf!

    Oh, thanks for all those immaculate words.

    Hunter would listen to the moods and colours of a tune and then adapt his imagery, be they surreal or pedestrian, proletarian or honkytonk. Extremely few rock lyricists could touch him.

    I'm hearing "Ripple" in my head.

    I saw the Grateful Dead in concert half a dozen times between 1974 and 1987, and Hunter only once, in 1976.
