Dr. Hunter S. Thompson killed himself two years ago today. We miss him a lot, especially as the presidential race is starting to warm up. While it’s depressing to think we’ll never be able to read his thoughts on Barack vs. Hillary, there’s still a lot of stuff coming up to keep a fan busy.
His widow, Anita, maintains a blog from Owl Farm and is preparing a collection of interviews and memories in a book called The Gonzo Way. Editor Douglas Brinkley is finishing up the third volume of Thompson’s letters, and illustrator Ralph Steadman recently released The Joke’s Over: Bruised Memories: Gonzo, Hunter S. Thompson and Me.
And if that’s not enough Gonzo for you, check out a 1978 BBC documentary, Fear and Loathing in Gonzovision, after the jump…

One thought on “We miss you, Dr. Thompson”
Great, great footage in that BBC doc. I’ve only seen the first ten minutes but will be raising a glass of Chivas and watching the rest tonight.
