Hunter S. Thompson’s HUSTLER Moment

Looking back on that time when America’s Magazine interviewed the Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas icon.

HUSTLER and Hunter S. Thompson: if they weren’t a match made in heaven, then they certainly were compatriots in some strange and wonderful place. Two iconic entities dedicated to preserving personal liberty, pursuing the truth, and exposing the corrupt and powerful—hell-raising peas in a pod, really. 

Those two entities came together in the August 1998 issue of America’s Magazine via the profile Fear and Loathing in Hollywood

The recent anniversary of Thompson’s passing—he died at age 67 on February 20, 2005, of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head—seems as good a reason as any to revisit the profile, which captured Thompson in all his anarchic glory.

The article, written by Kevin P. Simonson, was linked to the big-screen adaptation of Thompson’s groundbreaking book Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, which starred Johnny Depp as Thompson’s alter-ego Raoul Duke blazing a drug-fueled path through Sin City in search of the American Dream.
