Hunter S. Thompson Interviewing Terry the Tramp
Tramp was one of the most famous of the Oakland Angels back in the 1960's. The quality of this first video starts out okay, but then ya gotta listen real hard past the chick folk singer in the background during some of the middle, but by minute six it subsides and you can hear them talk clearly again. I found the interview(s) interesting, while there is nothing inherently insightful or otherwise, it is what it is...a recorded conversation between a notorious 1%'er and member of the HA MC and the counter culture Gonzo journalist himself. It is a moment in time captured on tape, in August of 1965, and worth a listen.
