Angus Maclise

The late percussionist, poet, calligrapher, mystic, shaman and visionary Angus MacLise was pure '60s free spirit all the way. He was a founding member of the Velvet Underground -- but promptly quit as soon as he found out they were being paid to play their first gig. A list of MacLise's collaborators and compadres reads like a who's who of American counter-culture mavericks: La Monte Young, Marian Zazeela, Terry Riley, Tony Conrad, Henry Flynt, Jack Smith, Andy Warhol, Gerard Malanga, Charlemagne Palestine, Jonas Mekas, Sheldon Rochlin and Ira Cohen. MacLise's work has made him a bona fide legend among vintage psychedelia enthusiasts; his intricate, India-influenced drumming propelled any number of tranced-out jams in New York's lofts of the era.
