that's the first I've heard of it. Is it out yet? Know what it's called? I wonder if they collaborated on any songs together, that would be wild.
Just when I'm wondering how we'll hear from Hunter, thinking he should be reading on stage during Space this tour, I find out today that he wrote songs for Dylan's new album...
Looks like the induction ceremony is June, 18th. so probably not much time left to vote. The web site doesn't give a lot of info. I love learnin GD songs and reading Hunter's lyrics for them. Without him there wouldn't have been a Grateful Dead. I hope he knows how much we love him for his contribution to the soundtracks of our lives.
Thanks for the link gratefaldean. I didn't even know they were nominated! $50 for a membership to vote. Wish I could do it but I'm saving for the Gorge. Hope they're in the Hall soon!
Let there be songs to fill the air!
Of course, you can't vote if you're not already a member...
Hunter/Garcia for SWHOF!
Greatest Poet of all time....how could you put an award up for that? He has made my life that much better in every way. All his songs/poems remind me of a hot/cool summer night, breezes slightly passing through the night, yet so hot, that you need to cool off....so you jump right into the ocean, while steam streams out your pores and you come back to the fire only to notice that Robert already told you that.
Cheers to you Mr. Hunter, you don't need an award to always have a place in my heart!
Will you come with me? Once in awhile you can get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right!

WHAT A LONG STRANGE------ WELL ------YA KNOW THE REST!!!! KEEP SMILIN!!!!!!! ALOHA ! DA ROACH
I see Hunter/Garcia listed as 2009 nominees to the songwriters hall of fame, for some reason in the category of "non-performing" songwriters. Don't know what the classification criteria may be...also don't know how to lobby for votes. Vote early and vote often!
wonder what can be done to encourage this?
