I’m psyched to be included in an impressive series of interviews about the Beat Generation conducted by Michael Limnios at Blues @ Greece, a Greek web publication devoted to underground music and culture.
I particularly like the question Michael asked me about Beat writers and poker (which shows that this interviewer knows me well). I’m in great company in this interview series; other respondents have included Beat/Grateful Dead expert Dennis McNally, Stephanie Nikolopoulus, who recently wrote a good piece on Kerouac for The Millions, poet A. D. Winans, Cherry Valley beat loyalists Charles Plymell and Pamela Beach-Plymell, filmmaker Laki Vazakas, Allen Ginsberg’s former aide
Bob Rosenthal, poet Amiri Baraka, native American historian Carl Waldman, Beatdom publisher David Wills, hippie legend Ed Sanders and photographer Elsa Dorfman. Not too shabby!
