John 'Hoppy' Hopkins, Obituary

From The Guardian.

I don't think I ever met John Hopkins, but he was an influential character in the 1960s.

I used to go to the UFO Club in Tottenham Court Road (I lived for almost a year in Goodge Place) , I read International Times (IT) - and even wrote a few articles for it - and participated in the 14 Hour Technicolour Dream at Alexandra Palace.

Beat poetry, the blues, underground films and jazz.

Exciting and creative times, even without the use of drugs.
