PSYCHEDELIC GOSPELS

Throughout medieval Christianity, religious works of art emerged to illustrate the teachings of the Bible. Much of the artwork and icons have images of psychoactive mushrooms and plants. Using this visual evidence to document the role of visionary plants in Christianity,“The Psychedelic Gospels" reveals that Christianity may indeed have had a psychedelic history.

Hal Linden still performing with his band

Linden started out his career in the city as a musician, but transitioned to musical theater, working his way up from understudy to lead. He got his big break when he appeared on Broadway in the late ’50s in the hit show Bells Are Ringing, but Linden told me that back then he was more a natural performer than a trained actor.

FOOTBALL TO OPERA

Robinson grew up in Atlanta, the son of a Baptist minister and a mother who spent a lot of time making sure her children played musical instruments and did well in school. His earliest memory of singing was being "in the kiddie choir," standing on a chair in church and singing the hymn "Can't Nobody Do Me Like Jesus." He got a lot of applause. "Then I realized I wanted to play the drums, which is a lot more exciting than singing. So I ended up being the church drummer."
