Owsley 'Bear' Stanley dies in Australian car crash

CANBERRA, Australia – Owsley "Bear" Stanley, a 1960s counterculture icon who worked with The Grateful Dead and was a prolific LSD producer, died in a car crash in Australia, his family said Monday. He was 76.

Lyrics by The Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix and Frank Zappa reference Stanley's name and brushes with the law, underlining his influence.

Stanley produced an estimated pound (half a kilogram) of pure LSD, or roughly 5 million "trips" of normal potency of the hallucinogenic drug, after enrolling in 1963 at the University of California at Berkeley and becoming involved in the drug scene that underpinned the hippie movement, according to the BookRags.com website.

He was an accomplished sound engineer for the psychedelic rock band The Grateful Dead.

Sam Cutler, a firm friend of Stanley since 1970 when Cutler became the band's tour manager, described him as was "a wonderful man and a great teacher."

"His death is a grievous loss to his family and the tens of thousands of people from the '60s on who were influenced by his work with The Grateful Dead," Cutler said.

Stanley, who had adopted Australia as his home country, was the son of a U.S. government attorney and his namesake grandfather, Augustus Owsley Stanley, was a Kentucky governor and U.S. senator.

Stanley was driving a car that swerved off a highway and down an embankment before hitting trees near the town of Mareeba in Queensland state Saturday. His wife was treated for minor injuries from the crash.

A family statement Monday described Stanley as "our beloved patriarch."

He is survived by his wife Sheila, four children, eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, the statement said.

I think y'all need to look up the definition for pedophile.

His life changed the course of humanity in innumerable ways.  can't say enough positive about the guy.  i wonder if he has a treasure trove of goodies stashed somewhere.

We won't know until they are busted I'm sure.

However one out of these two scenarios are true

A) amounts like pickard produced are a thing of the past which drives up price
B) amounts like that are still being produced but after prices spiked the higher ups are scraping the extra to themselves and keeping the price the same as it was right after the bust


Either way those two men are too awesome for words.

I think about how many people he supplied LSD to.  BUT not just that.  Putting it into context of time and place.  The SF area of the late 60's and early 70's was a mecca of new thought.  I mean, I can't even imagine the depth of influence he's had over our entire civilization.  Who knows where we would be now without LSD.  And i say that as a person who has never used the drug.
