“Owsley Stanley, 1935–2011
- Owsley Stanley, the ultimate counter-culture figure, renegade offspring of a line of prominent US public figures, might be remembered for introducing the world to two things: the psychedelic drug LSD and wall-to-wall sound produced with electronic amplification by rock groups. He and his colleagues are estimated to have produced 1.25 million doses of LSD between 1965 and 1967, essentially seeding the entire psychedelic movement, the so-called ”flower power scene”, symbolising a course in life rather different from what had been charted by his ancestry.”—Acid king ushered in flower power era
