This is Oliver Sacks just hanging out and being a TOTAL mod in the 1960s.

Oliver Sacks is probably one of the most interesting people of all time. Sacks experimented with drugs in the 1960s before he became one of the most famous neurologists of all time.

His failure lead him to become a writer and he wrote fascinating books about music's effects on the brain. The photo is from his new memoir On The Move, which comes out this May.
