Friends of Hunter S. Thompson Share Their Wildest Stories Featuring The Late Gonzo Journalist

Hunter S. Thompson was an eccentric writer and activist who lived a fascinating life. He grew up in Kentucky and went on to serve in the Air Force before becoming the father of gonzo journalism. Thompson documented his adventures from the time he spent in Puerto Rico, to his stint with the Hells Angels motorcycle club, to his campaign for sheriff of Aspen. Thompson lived on his terms, often going out of his way to take risks or go against the grain. 

Thompson's friends remember what it was like taking part in his outrageous escapades. Tales about the late gonzo journalist reveal what those traveling with Thompson experienced firsthand - both as witnesses and participants. Substances and fearlessness were a given with Thompson, and those fortunate enough to work with him will never forget his outlandish lifestyle. And if you don't believe these stories, we also got our hands on a fax Hunter S. Thompson sent Keith Richards... and it sure is madness, to say the very least.
