Yep. He sure did. I always thought he was out there. Off into the deep end somewhere.
Still enjoy his material though.

Kind of like, oh, just as a mere example, Nick Hornby.
The guy claims to dislike Robert Zimmerman, yet he's got how many of his records? 3 dozen? I forget, its in "Songbook" though.
Of course, that part of Bob was the only part I read!

Well, "p!$$ln6 in a river", as well.

I think hes got good material. He's written some of my favorite songs. about a dozen of them. He's got some real horrible stuff.
Thats how it goes though.

There is always two sides to every story.
Somewhere in between you find the truth.
You guys know what I mean?

I just heard of his death yesterday, and wasn't too surprised. I mean, how long can you live the gonzo lifestyle?

I do agree that there is always another side to every story. I don't want to jump to a judgement about Mr. Thompson, as for all I know that lifestyle was pure fiction that he found easier to play along with than deny.

Still, RIP Hunter. You did bless(?) us with some pretty entertaining material.

He died like he lived. When he felt that it was over he ended it.:)
