I had a great day yesterday Christopher Gibbs’ Memorial Service with all the Lords and Ladies, Dukes and Duchesses (inc Duchess of Cornwall) ending with a tea party at Christies. Nigel Waymouth, John Pearse, John Dunbar, Tom Stoppard and so on were there.The service was most moving. Ingrid Maclean (my biographer) was there too. The book is dedicated to Christopher. I miss him and the world is a much lesser place without him. You can read about our friendship in the biog of course.Ingrid told us today that the book will def be live on Amazon etc by the end of the month. Semper Fi.
The launch of BEHIND OPEN DOORS was a great success. We had a full house, which included Rupert Sheldrake, Anthony Stern, David Cammell, my brother and his wife and Mike Horovitz. Also many other old Cambridge friends.
A jolly fine time was had by all and the books flew of the table. I read from Albert Hoffman and Bill Hicks:
“I’d like to see a positive LSD story in the press – ‘Today a young man on acid realised that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There’s no such thing as death, life is only a dream and we’re the imagination of ourselves.’”
I took my own Fly Agaric with me which I picked a year ago in the retirement home behind April Cottage to illustrate how the mindless thugs who made LSD illegal have lost the war!
I directed the filming of the 1977 Pink Floyd ANIMALS cover art shoot. Here I am with David Gilmour and Roger Waters.
My biography by Ingrid Maclean will be published on Nov 6th. Here’s the Vimeo link to the promo: https://vimeo.com/295400113

A NEW REVIEW OF MY NOVEL ‘LIFE IS JUST…’ ON AMAZON.COM:
‘Very creative writing style. You feel that you are there with the fully formed character interactions. Spiritually flavored adventure without being preachy. Wish it were one of a series. Would like to know how the individuals develop further in their lives… ‘ Arthur Kolb. Metalsmith.
