A Conversation with Gary Lachman, author of Lost Knowledge of the Imagination, PART 1…January 17, 2019

January 17, 2019

I think the two paragraphs that open Gary Lachman’s wikipedia entry pretty much hits51nksu6trsl._sy346_ the high points of his life:

Gary Joseph Lachman (born December 24, 1955, Bayonne, New Jersey, United States), also known as Gary Valentine, is an American writer and musician.

He came to prominence in the mid-1970s as the bass guitarist for the punk rock/new wave band Blondie. Since the 1990s, Lachman has written full-time, often about mysticism and occultism.

From being Blondie’s bass player to what the Washington Post writes about him: unknown“Lachman writes about philosophical and mystical ideas with exceptional grace, forcefulness and clarity.” But what about how he got from Punk to mysticism? Listen tonight and you hear him tell his story in his words.

Interesting man. Interesting book.

So remember: Tune in tonight at 7pm at our website or on the radio at WNYE, 91.5 or use the TUNEIN app on your smart device.
