This came as a shock for us Deadheads out here. Re-realizing the power, emotion and imagery of Rober Hunter’s lyrics and poetry all over again is just another gift for us on his way out...
I thought it was going to be tough to be alone yesterday after hearing the news...but the folks at the SXM GD channel worked hard & fast and got David Gans up and running for an impromptu 2 hour call-in show, right after the days live show aired. It was a very emotional couple hours that was just what I needed to get through it —a connection to my fellow Heads I otherwise would not have had.
Those of us that have so so many deeply emotional memories, along with that feeling of being connected to ‘the one’ with everyone there, from all those live experiences, makes the emotions that much stronger.
Fare you well our lyrical master. Your words and world created for us will live on forever.
