|1.||Hunter S Thompson|
A sports journalist and author made famous by his highly opinionated articles, a style which was later dubbed by an unimpressed critic as "Gonzo Journalism." He became a cultural icon in the late 60's for his very open and honest accounts of drug and alcohol use.
He wrote many books about his adventures with narcotics; most notably, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
"I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me."
