Bill Hicks – we need you now

The man in black was the most profound and ingenious comedian that the world has ever seen. Hicks was a vicious satirist who attacked his audience for being tied down by senseless consumerism and pointless rules. He wanted to break free of the strains of financial conditioning and evolve into a a society based on love and compassion.

 Born in 1961, he believed illegal drugs were to be fully experienced in order to gain a greater understanding for your mind and the endless possibilities around you. Music was supposed to be about your heart and not about your bank account. Religion was corporate and corporations were keeping society from reaching maximum potential.  He performed one of the most brilliant standup routines ever seen. Hicks challenged his audience through relentless white hate and ended up collapsing under the weight of the world’s ignorance and stupidity. He performed his first gig at the age of 13,  ridiculed anyone who banned smoking, then died from pancreatic cancer at the age of 32.  He was trying to save us from ourselves… when he died, I cried for two days.  Bill, we need you now.
