Galt MacDermot, Composer of Hair, Dead at 89

MacDermot achieved international acclaim with Hair, a cultural phenomenon that spawned multiple hit singles, saw its title song hit No. 1 on the Billboard charts, earned a Grammy Award for its cast album, was adapted into a 1979 Milos Forman film, and found success again in 2009 with a Tony-winning revival. And in spring 2019, Hair will makes its live television debut when Hair Live! premieres as part of NBC's annual live musical event.

Galt MacDermot, who composed the score for "Hair," the tribal rock musical that shocked mainstream theatergoers as it celebrated the drug-crazed, free-love, antiwar rebellious energy of hippies in the 1960s, died on Monday at his home in Staten Island. He was 89.

"Hymnen der Hippie-Generation"

"Hair" hatte am Broadway im April 1968 Premiere. Beeinflusst vom Rock 'n' Roll der Zeit, propagierten langhaarige junge Menschen auf der Bühne freie Liebe, Drogenkonsum und Kriegsdienstverweigerung. MacDermots Songs "Age Of Aquarius" und "Let The Sun Shine In" wurden zu Hymnen der Hippie-Generation.
