Tobias Churton on Aleister Crowley:
Some people may come to Crowley through rock n roll. Led Zeppelin III (1971) had “Do what thou wilt” inscribed on its run-out groove, if memory serves, and I suppose this gave the music a kind of free-form, libertarian rationale. However “Do what thou wilt” does not mean “Do as thou wilt”, so people in search of mere kicks of self-indulgence might be disappointed when they discover Crowley was a stickler for discipline!

Jeffrey D. Evans: agreed. I recall how shocked people were in my school years when I pointed out that Crowley (whose Book 4, pt. 3 I was studying at that time) was pictured as one of the “people we like” on the Beatles’ just-released “Sergeant Pepper’s…” album. A lot of them quickly lost interest in him after looking closely at the book. So many of them were just looking for Free-Form-Fun….and that triple-F is NOT 666, no matter what people think!
