Remembering Hunter S. Thompson

It’s 20th February, and that means it’s the anniversary of the death of Hunter S. Thompson. It has been six years now since he shot himself at Owl Farm, and every year legions of Gonzo fans remember his life and work by raising a glass on this sad day.

The Quietus is marking the anniversary of his death by publishing an interview with him that you’ve never seen before.

The Independent has a story about Bruce Robinson’s efforts to make HST’s The Rum Diary into a movie.
