Hunter in particular.

I hope not re: Donna and why would Robert Hunter perform with them?

Well he should be acknowledged bigtime .. he only wrote the lyrics for almost every great song they ever had.. try to imagine the Dead without him

I fear they are writing him out of this reunion... it would be a great shame..

as far as Donna: she was in the Dead for years....she is still alive..she should be there and on stage for a song or two..its the right thing to do

I'm not denying Hunter's importance to the Grateful Dead, however, he's never performed with them... so why start now?

Re: Donna, I just find her voice grating.

i never said he should perform ... but he does need to be acknowledged ON THE STAGE

it almost seems like they've been trying to write him out of the history for a while now...since 2003's tour i can't think of any linkages...that is weird.

I think Hunter may be the best American lyricist -in the post tin pan alley period- along wth Dylan and Cohen (who I realize is Canadian).....

the Dead, without him, would not exist.. he's alive and well..he should be there and I'm not talking about just hanging out with Bill Walton in the VIP section

and while Hunter may not have "performed" with them he was a part of the Dead... he is on the cover of Workingmans Dead for example

a good friend of mine who has been doing the mail order thing for DECADES got rejected.. i'm talking old school hardcore deadhead who would usually get GREAT seats

I think they've changed the way they do it. and some of the personnel doing it if not all have changed..

I think the problem is they made that instructional video...too good!
and the volume increased because it was harder to make some of the rookie mistakes like not sending a S.A.S.E.  (god can't remember the last time I've done that)

Hutch, they changed the mail order system about 15 years ago.
