Owsley Stanley - LSD Manufacturer Who ‘Helped Create the 60s’

Though not a household name, Augustus Owsley Stanley III, a.k.a. Bear, was an underground hippie legend who some say is largely responsible for the zeitgeist of the 1960s counterculture movement, thanks to the ultra-pure LSD he manufactured.

The first batch he ever created consisted of 800,000 doses, an extraordinary amount.

John Lennon sent a cameraman to Monterey with the express purpose of bringing back enough Owsley acid to last him a lifetime.

The Masters Apprentices appreciated him. A live version from a 70's Aust. music show. GTK=Get To Know. Great show because it didn't target the pop audience, more the older "head" audience. This is from their excellent 1971 Choice Cuts album recorded in England.
