Kevin Roberg-Perez in Minnesota wrote

This week we lost Robert Hunter one of two main lyricists for the Grateful Dead.

When he did attend the group’s concerts, he was content to either stand to the side of the stage or, better yet, sit anonymously in the audience. It was in the latter location, he told the Associated Press in 2006, that he received his greatest songwriting compliment, from a man who had no idea who he was.


“He turned to me during ‘Cumberland Blues’ and said, ‘I wonder what the guy who wrote that song a hundred years ago would think if he knew the Grateful Dead was doing it,’” he recalled, referencing the colorful tale of hardscrabble American miners.
