Known for his seminal works like Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Hell’s Angels, Hunter S. Thompson was a journalist (or "gonzo journalist") who was down for anything, and in this case anything should be taken literally. Hunter S. Thompson lived an extreme life full of drugs, booze, and guns, and he made no bones about it. Thompson gave off the impression that he was a mad man, but he just wanted to live his life the way he saw fit. Thompson may have been over the top, but he made life more interesting for everyone who knew him. He was definitely crazy, but the world is better for having him in it.
