Has Robert Hunter come out to any shows? Is there any chance of him getting on stage with you?

You read minds. I invited him the last time we played in San Francisco, and he did come to the show. I asked him if he wanted to open for us, and he said, "Bill, you know, I've just exclusively been writing the last few years, and I haven't played in a while. So I don't feel good enough about playing."

When Hunter and Papa met each other [at the show], they almost had tears in their eyes, they were so happy. Hunter loves the way Malcolm put his words to music. There is a quote [from Hunter] in the liner notes that says, "They hit the ball out of the park. They probably hit it into orbit and it's still going." He liked it from first note to last. When the writer says that, you did it right. But it was really great to see the writer and the lead singer doing the material really like each other, you know? Yay!

Let's talk about the UC Santa Cruz Grateful Dead archive.

Yeah, I love it. It's really cool. It's another great place for Deadheads to meet. I went down there, and it about brought a tear to my eye. It felt so good for people to be honoring the spirit of the Grateful Dead. You'll love it. It's really fun. There is so much memorabilia. For instance, they have over 20,000 pictures. That's a lot! I'm really happy it's going on. It made me feel really good to have that body of work protected so nicely.

The Grateful Dead is still alive in so many ways.

You may have never seen Jerry live, but just talking to me, you're keeping it alive too.
