Hunter Thompson should really require no introduction. Quite simply put, he was THE man.
But, if you don’t already know him, I guess now you do.
The day the news of his apparent suicide broke was the first time a ‘celebrity’ death ever hit me like a sack of bricks. The only other one to’ve effected me in a similar way was that of Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. (Who, I imagine, will be another subject of mine, soon enough.)
This man was and is one of my go-to guys, one of my all-time heroes in life.
Another one-hour portrait.
