Viewing the world through a Gonzo lens

There are those who, if they had not been in the world, it would be a totally different place. Hunter S. Thompson is one of those people.
Peace, love & adventure for all,

Ends and Beginnings

“Freedom is something that dies unless it’s used.” –  Hunter S. Thompson

From the ages of 13 to 25 or so I had a subscription to Rolling Stone magazine, basically 1974 to 1986. My interests as a kid were music and sports so I also subscribed to Sports Illustrated. In the “good old days” the contents of Rolling Stone was 80% music and 20% national or international current events and the byline that appeared most frequently on these non-music articles was the legendary Hunter S. Thompson.

When I was growing up I didn’t want to be a fireman, or a pro-football player, I wanted to be Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones. Unfortunately I had one itsy-bitsy problem, my guitar playing, at least as compared to Keith’s, sucked and my mother wouldn’t allow me to live the life of dirty, smelly, drug taking, alcohol drinking rockstar as a 14-year-old. Thanks…
