About Robert Hunter
Robert Hunter is best known as a non-performing lyricist for the Grateful Dead. He is also a recording artist in his own right, a poet, and a translator. Hunter began contributing lyrics to the Dead at the invitation of his friend, Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia, as of the group’s third album, Aoxomoxoa, in 1969. Since then, he wrote some of the Dead’s most memorable words, including “Truckin'” (“What a long, strange trip it’s been”) and the 1987 comeback hit “Touch of Grey.” Hunter began recording solo albums on the Dead’s record label in 1974 and continued sporadically since.
