Christopher Knowles & William Henry

Two of our most impressive thinkers in conversation.

Christopher Knowles and William Henry share their insights in a half hour interview. Mr. Knowles uses his new book, THE SECRET HISTORY OF ROCK 'N' ROLL as a jumping off point toward deeper mysteries. Mr. Henry manages to frame this fascinating conversation into something perfectly transformative.

Listen HERE.

Very interesting to hear Chris talk about the spirit of Rock & Roll almost as a conscious trickstery entity.

It makes me think about all those early contactees of the 50s and 60s, and how in order to maintain the contact their "guides" would often lead them to a very ascetic lifestyle —renouncing to meat and alcohol, meditating, etc.

Meanwhile here come the rockstars in the early 60s and the 70s, with all their hedonistic excesses, and THEY are the ones who get all those weird paranormal experiences, without deliberately seeking them! ;)

Hey, wouldn't it be interesting to do a study of the musical tastes of experiencers? something interesting might pop (or roll) out of it :-P

"Hey, wouldn't it be interesting to do a study of the musical tastes of experiencers?"

That might be an interesting survey indeed.
My favorites (although there are many) would be "The Beatles,Pink Floyd,Bruce Springsteen,The Alan Parsons Project" and the soundtrack to
"Chariots of the Gods".

I've already ordered "Spandex" through Amazon,so I might have to add "Rock'N'Roll" to my wishlist as well.
I've been reading "The Secret Sun"
from it's inception,heading towards the current 2011 posts,and I'm finding it a great read...listen...viewing,and I'm only up to the beginning of 2009.
Great stuff,Chris.
