He's in his 90's and of decent health for his age the last I heard.(of course at 90 you can die at any moment from natural causes). Dr. David Nichols told me he is spending the rest of his days out of the public eye and keeps to himself, family and friends in Switzerland.

This reminded me of back in the day in chemistry. The teacher asked us to pick a chemist and I picked Albert. Muahahahaha. Here is a quote of his.
"LSD is not a product of planned research. I did not look for it, it came to me. This means to me that a higher authority thought it was necessary now to provide mankind with an additional pharmacological aid for spiritual growth."

The two other people are Goa Gil and Ariane (his wife).

That photo was taken in a psy-trance party in Switzerland. The party was the commemoration of the 60years of the invention of LSD. ( http://forum.isratrance.com/viewtopic.php?topic=11580&forum=38)

Goa Gil is one of the founders of Goa music, and a very well known DJ / shaman among the global psychedelic trance community. He impresses everyone with his 20+ hour DJ sets, and comes yearly to portugal where he makes the most surreal and spiritual parties i've ever been in (or iniciation rituals, as he likes to call his sessions).

His site is  www.goagil.com.
An advice to anyone interested in psychedelics, and psychedelic dance music: please, check his tour dates and go to one of his outdoor parties...I bet you will never miss a party of his from that moment on  :smirk: .

Pretty cool. I'm curious about this whole goa genre. Is it basically trance or is it somehow different? Because you don't really hear of goa here in the U.S.

It's a type of trance, I havent heard it myself, but from how other's describe it...is that it's main difference is in the fact that a Goa song won't have just one basic typical dance beat or whatever, but flows and evolves and changes into several different types of beats and sounds and styles and waves, etc...very beautiful, from what I've heard.

Goa is the first manifestation of trance ever, and appeared in Goa (an indian province) with the hippies that have moved there from the US and Europe.

A few years later, Goa has given form to another type of trance, Psychedelic trance, and is pretty much not played anymore at parties, in which Psy and Full-on trance have taken the lead.

All these 3 genres are very diferent from the 'vocal' 'club' or 'euro' mainstream forms of trance they play in the radio and at clubs. They are made to be played in underground outdoor forest parties, and have a spiritual and mystical meaning that the commercial forms of trance have not.

Goa, Psychedelic and Fullon trance are generaly heard by acid-heads and mushroom people, whereas club trance is heard by the more normal dance music crowd at clubs, in the cities.

Read this Interview if you want to know more about the history of Goa, Psy, and the experience those kinds of music transmit to the listeners.

Goa is a city of heroin junkies who have all about ruined the meaning of the scene there.

Oh yes that is his wife, not sure of whom else in the image. The name onthe URL is spelled wrong. Albert's name is Hofmann. I also noticed it misp -spelled in the thread heading. No problem. Everyone always spells it the wrong way.

and furthermore he is 97 years old.

I just recently posted two images of him with Dr. Stanley Krippner.

And no he is not giving anymore lectures. He lives in Switzerland. My friend Tjakko Stijve is a close friend of Albert's and sees him frequently. He is the last of the first wave of Pioneers besides Andrew Weil. His story is told in the book, LSD my Problem Child translated from the German by his good friend Jonathan Ott. A A short bio of his shroom research is told ion my CD-Rom: Mushroom Pioneers by John W. ALlen.

Info on that is lovccated at my site.

Lol, no!

The woman in the photo is Gil's wife, not Hofmann's wife.

Nevertheless, she seems she could be Goa Gil's daughter also...

I found something really cool. It's a audio cd of Albert Hofmann. CLICK HERE.

It's from some German Amazon.com, so I doubt it's even orderable. It would probably be in a different language even if you could order it. I WANT SOME HOFMANN AUDIO!!!
