RIP Robert Hunter

Updated: Jul 18, 2020

I'd never been much of a Deadhead, but something about the way JRAD plays their songs really clicks with me, and since my first JRAD show a few years ago, I've had an amazing time discovering the wonderful songbook Robert Hunter had a huge hand in creating.


"Eyes" is hands-down my favorite Dead song, lyrically, so it feels right to share this clip of JRAD playing Eyes -> NFA as my own little tribute today:


My first JRAD show was 8/11/18, and they played an incredible version of Eyes to close a four song first set of The Wheel > UJB, Dancin' > Eyes. It blew me away, and I spent half the song crying like I was hearing Harry Hood at the Gorge or something.


Anyway, that's all to say thank you to Robert Hunter. May the four winds blow you safely home.
