I have been a fan of William S. Burroughs since college. Really more then than now.
But there is nothing like his voice.
Nothing like his presence. Although I do have to acknowledge the tragedy that he shot his wife in the 1950s.
I remember in college loving “The Ticket That Exploded” although I can’t really get into it now.
And I love the idea of the bizarre character of American culture being part of Americana.
It’s a documentary well worth seeing, and like most of what I see free on Amazon Prime.
Worth seeing. And it’s even available free online.
I also owned his “Dead City Radio” album at one point, but one I lost along the way sometime.
Here is his famous “Words of Advice for Young People” with the wonderful Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy. Prefer the song to the video. But of course William S. Burroughs may be up their with Keith Richards in all-time heroin usage.
And here is the wonderful “Spare Ass Annie.”
