Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter Performs at the Stafford Palace Theater on Thursday
Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter (pictured left, with Jerry Garcia, right) not only penned memorable words for most of the Dead's output, he's also collaborated with Nashville musician Jim Lauderdale and Bob Dylan (!). It's been years since he toured as a musician, but with royalties being sapped by online sharing and costly health issues in his recent past (not to mention the fact that he's now 72), Hunter figured now's the time. Head over for lots of Dead tunes and a few interesting covers.
