"You may bury my body down by the highway side,
so my old evil spirit can catch a Greyhound bus and ride..."
~Robert Johnson

S. Clay Wilson remains unconscious in the Intensive Care Unit nearly 2 weeks after being discovered face down in the pouring rain between two parked cars near San Francisco's Delores Heights. It is still unclear exactly what transpired in the hour or so between storming out of a friend's house that night and being found by two pedestrians who immediately called 911, but he was definitely very drunk and it looks as though he was severely beaten but not robbed. Regardless of the events, his brain is badly damaged and I'm just hoping he'll pull through somehow. It's a fucking tragedy to think he may never draw again. For more info keep your eyes on Steve Duin's latest reports for the Oregonian which feature rare images provided by underground art historian Patrick Rosenkranz.

I just got word that he's awake and breathing on his own.
That's about all I know right now.

Heard that from his neighbors who are good friends of mine & his.

I'll let you know if I hear anything when it comes through the pipe if you'd like.
