If you have a few minutes to read this, I recommend you do.
Here is the note that the CanTeen project came across when reading hundreds of the tributes that were flowing in for our man Hunter. It hasn’t been edited, for extra effect 🙂
I remember the first time I met Hunter. It was after the Urthboy Tour in 09,He was a lot healthier back then. Me & Phil didn’t know a lot about Hunter, but we all knew Jam Roll. Freo were playing Richmond that night, Huntz kept asking for the score mid way through his set. After the show he was hanging with Daz & a few other SBX members. I tapped him on the shoulder & asked for a photo. He did one for each of us. In mine he threw his W up. And in Phils he was holding Monster House. I put the photo straight on Facebook. I got a few likes from friends who knew who he was. Made me smile. That nights stayed with me since that day.
I have seen Hunter too many times to recall them all but a recent time was at Bias B’s final show in Perth for his Bias Life LP. I had a both Phil & Kobe, who I had become best mates with, that night. I wasn’t drinking, due to the Month For Huntz I was paticipating in, so I drove. We parked at my work, not far from The Rocket Room. We got there early. The boys had been drinking & smoking since 4 so they were deep in at that point. We walked to the Rocket Room & paid to get in. We all bought Luke Adams foundation bands. We had a few drinks & decided it was time for a ciggarette.
