Robert Hunter

After nearly 10 years, ROBERT HUNTER – the prolific lyricist and member of the legendary psychedelic rock group The Grateful Dead – is taking to the road with a series of concert dates, stopping at the Keswick Theatre in Glenside on October 4.

Robert Hunter joined the Grateful Dead in the fall of 1967, when he arrived at a rehearsal just in time to write the first verse of the band’s classic “Dark Star”. Though he’d never play onstage, he became not only a genuine band member, but its secret ace in the hole. It was Hunter’s work that would elevate the Dead’s songs from ditties to rich, complete stories set to song. In fact, it was Hunter who penned the best-known lyric, and unofficial Grateful Dead band slogan – the climactic refrain of “Truckin’”: “What a long, strange trip it’s been”.

Hunter was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994 as an official member of the Grateful Dead. Since the band’s dissolution in 1995, Hunter has successfully continued his writing career, most recently opening for the Dead’s 2004 summer tour.
