Hunter/Garcia were nominated a few years ago and inexplicably were not elected. So definitely about time! If you follow the link, there's this: Musical titans Bobby Braddock, Willie Dixon, Robert Hunter & Jerry Garcia, Toby Keith, Cyndi Lauper and Linda Perry will become the latest inductees of the Songwriters Hall of Fame at the organization’s 46th Annual Induction and Awards Dinner. These legendary songwriters wrote such mega-hits as “He Stopped Loving Her Today,” “Hoochie Coochie Man,” “Dark Star,” “Should’ve Been A Cowboy,” “Time After Time,” and “Beautiful.” I've heard Dark Star described many ways, but "mega-hit" is a first for me...

Didn't even know there was such a thing. Awesome news. Aside from Dylan, Robert Hunter is one of the greatest songwriters in pop/rock history-who would say otherwise? Biblical in his brilliance. Sweet news.

Don't you think this is an opportunity for the boys do some sort of warmup in NY just ahead of Chicago? Just a thought.....

It's only fitting they get in together...those two started hanging out before anyone knew there was a scene...they created the scene, and the rest.....history.

    So deserved, the epitomy of creative genius
    Maybe a bit biased but all other songwriters fall short in comparison, my opinion. Beyond songs they did concoct, pure legend and poetry.

    They had to be added?
    They should have named the Hall AFTER them.
