New Zealand rock and pop singer best known as the lead vocalist with Dragon, a band formed by his older brother Todd Hunter in Auckland in 1973. Dragon became one of Australia's biggest-selling bands, scoring a number of hit singles and successful albums, most notably 1978's O Zambezi.

Hunter joined The Party Boys in 1985 for a sold-out national tour, recording the album You Need Professional Help.

He was diagnosed with throat cancer in 1997 and could no longer perform or tour. For the last few months of his life, Hunter underwent various forms of treatment including several alternative medicine remedies but none were successful and he died in Berry near Kiama, Australia, on 17 July 1998.
