Psychedelic Giant of Eternity

Augustus Owsley Stanley III

 


 Overall some cliched VH1 60's hippie footage, but including this as it shows some of the only video of the great LSD chemist, Bear. A few telling comments about his personality as well. 
Bear didn't like to be photographed, reportedly because the images stole a person's soul. But who knows if that was just cover for a cautious drug manufacturer. Certainly helped build the legend.
