For Beat fans, the latest news is a film about Gregory Corso, entitled "Corso - The Last Beat." If you thought you knew everything there was to know about the enigmatic, mercurial, conflicted Corso, think again. Here's the trailer:

I never got Corso. I tried reading Gasoline, and just couldn't grasp it. I think he's too deep for me.

Greg, there is nothing to "get" try his THE HAPPY BIRTHDAY of DEATH
vere "catholic"

there is/was much more to Gregory than his "public" posturing...met him a couple of times brief encounters once he was drunk. once he was stoned..

a very complex "dude" a technician about the best of the "Beats" (my opinion)

try his AN ACCIDENTAL AUTOBIOGRAPHY w Patti Smith forward

was in several different mags along w

Greg, I'll be checking out Ed's recommendations, too - I have Gasoline and a couple of other volumes -

Ed, thanks for the heads up on Corso - I think your jpeg file didn't come through.
