Remembering Hunter

“Hunter is the heart and soul of this community.”

“Hunter, like all of us, had his moods. He’d turn on a dime, of course, but it didn’t mean anything because that’s the way he was.”

“He had more to say about what was wrong with America than George W. Bush can ever tell us about what is right.”

“Today is a very sad day for Rolling Stone. Hunter is a part of our DNA. I feel I’ve lost a brother in arms. He lived longer than any of us expected already.”

“At this time of political correctness, he was never politically correct, and that is what I’ll miss the most about him.”

“I wasn’t surprised. I never expected Hunter to die in a hospital bed with tubes coming out of him.”

“I think Hunter was incapable of casualness. Everything to him had a certain intensity. Hunter was passionate about everything: sports, writing, wine ” everything he did he brought to it that element of passion. And he never took the day off; he was Hunter every day.”
