obedient to his superior officers and I suspect the two may have hooked up at the Palo Alto Veteran’s Administration Hospital while mustering out. At least that is what Pig Pen and Jerry’s brother Clifford told me way back in 1973. No harm done; both men were heroes in my book, or in at least three of my books. The non-military version of the story goes that Robert Hunter first met Garcia through a mutual girlfriend, (whatever that means) and in 1961 they briefly formed the duo, Bob and Jerry as well as playing in several bluegrass bands together until the Warlocks started in 1964. One notable early gig was sponsored by Rod Albin and his Boars Head Coffee House (on stage at the campus of the College of San Mateo) with Hunter strumming bass. Shortly after those gigs Hunter volunteered to participate in a Stanford University program testing psychedelic drugs under Dr. Richard Blum (not MK Ultra… the CIA sponsorship of the Stanford program has never been proven). The LSD, mescaline and psilocybin link has also not been fully defined as to dosage or published papers. In any case, Hunter considered these experiences to have boosted his writing skills and I guess that goes for Ken Kesey too. A subsequent over-fondness for weed and speed prompted him to leave California for New Mexico, where he began writing song lyrics, including Saint Stephen. He sent these to Garcia, who urged Hunter to come back to San Francisco. Hunter engaged in several other successful collaborations in addition to the Grateful Dead. He formed an on again-off again partnership with Bob Dylan when he co-wrote the tracks Silvio and The Ugliest Girl in the World on Dylan’s 1988 album Down in the Groove, and he later shared authorship of most of the songs on Together Through Life (2009) and collaborated on Duquesne Whistle from the album Tempest (2012). One wag said, “If Dylan doesn’t want the Nobel Prize give it to Hunter.” Robert Hunter also worked with Bruce Hornsby (who played keyboards with the Dead late in their career). As Hornsby put it, “I’ve loved so many of the Garcia/Hunter songs. They’re just timeless-sounding to me, could have been written hundreds of years ago.” 24 Robert Hunter is survived by his wife, Maureen, whom he married in 1982, and his children, Kate, Charlotte and Jess. Robert Hunter, songwriter and musician, born 23 June 1941; died 23 September 2019.
