In the 1970s, Gary Valentine Lachman was the founding guitar bass player for Blondie. In recent years though, Lachman shifted his focus to writing a slew of books about fringe culture, the occult, consciousness, and esoteric figures from history. His book about sixties psychedelia and the occult, Turn Off Your Mind: The Mystic Sixties and the Dark Side of the Age of Aquarius, is one of my favorite chronicles of the time. I highly recommend it. (The 2001 book was recently reprinted in the UK as The Dedalus Book of the 1960s: Turn Off Your Mind.) In the above interview, Lachman talks about his own long strange trip, and his new book, Jung the Mystic: The Esoteric Dimensions of Carl Jung's Life and Teachings. He's also blogging over at the Daily Grail!
