Hunter S Thompson (1937-2005), aka the Good Doctor, aka Raoul Duke. Journalist, author, experimenter, pioneer, icon. Thompson was credited as the creator of gonzo journalism, a subjective style of writing and reporting often blending fact with fiction which forged a new direction of literature in the 60's and 70s. Key works included Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, the Hells Angels, the fall of Saigon and Richard Nixon's '72 Campaign. Immortalised on film by both Johnny Depp and Bill Murray, painted by Ralph Steadman.
