Aleister Crowley: Magick, Rock and Roll, and the Wickedest Man in the World

I came across Aleister Crowley through the music of Ozzy Osbourne and Jimmy Page. I do not know about you but a man who dresses up in what looks like a mushroom costume is not that scary to me. It's actually comical. He looks more like he could pass as Toad's father. Labeled as the wickedest man of world, he was perhaps greatly misunderstood. What do expect if you proclaim yourself as an occultist?  Just in case, the latest bio was written by one of the founding members of Blondie by the name of Gary Lachman. It's amazing how Aleister Crowley has influenced the music community till this day.
The joy of life consists in the exercise of one's energies, continual growth, constant change, the enjoyment of every new experience. To stop means simply to die. The eternal mistake of mankind is to set up an attainable ideal.
