Thanks for that. I'm reading Long Strange Trip currently, but I will put that one on my list. Also looking at Bear: The Life and Times of Augustus Owsley Stanley III
Story goes Lennon's photographer smuggled it all back to England after Monterey Pop 1967 in his camera lenses and the Owsley goodness fueled the making of the Magical Mystery Tour. Bear: The Life and Times of Augustus Owsley Stanley III is brimming with all these fun Bear facts. I am passively listening to it and just got past the Egypt trip. Wild times.
