Ahh yes, Owsley acid was the best. Orange Sunshine, Purple Haze...

While the music played you worked by candlelight
Those San Francisco nights
You were the best in town
Just by chance you crossed the diamond with the pearl
You turned it on the world
That's when you turned the world around
Did you feel like Jesus?
Did you realize
That you were a champion in their eyes?
On the hill the stuff was laced with kerosene
But yours was kitchen clean
Everyone stopped to stare at your technicolor motor home
Every A-Frame had your number on the wall
You must have had it all...


Kid Charlemagne (Steely Dan)

Augustus Owsley Stanley III should be remembered for more than his contribution to hallucinogenic drugs – he was an electronics genius who introduced the stage monitor, the traveling PA, separate miked stereo sound and live recordings to rock and roll.

Now I ain't sayin' that I know nuthin' about no LSD 'er nuthin' but...

...Owsley "Bear" Stanley, age 79, has passed away... He was credited with making some of the purest LSD to be found back in the 60s and 70s and also credited with being a major supporter/guru/chemist for the Grateful Dead...

Now I ain't admittin' to havin' two hits of "Mister Natural" in a certain book either but if I did then if there was ever a time to see if it's still good, now might be that time... I mean, if I did have two hits of "Nattie" in a certain book, that is...

But no matter, R.I.P. "Bear"...

B~
