I am saddened to read of the passing of Beat poet, author and songwriter Michael McClure. He has a tremendous body of work that is simply beautiful. I had the privilege of working with him and his long time colleague Ray Manzarek of the Doors in 2002 on developing the as-yet unrealized DIG, a project that merges his poetry along with our shared passion for William Blake. Michael is a giant of the beat movement, and his written voice will endure.
Blessings to his memory and to his ongoing spirit,
