Another Beat anniversary. Eighty-five years ago today, in New York City’s Greenwich Village (St Vincent’s Hospital) – the birth of (Nunzio) Gregory Corso.

Plenty of Gregory, if you search through the archives here at the Allen Ginsberg Project, starting with our 2011 posting (after his own book-title) – Happy Birthday of Death

Here‘s our last year’s (2014) birthday shout-out

and here‘s our posting from the year before

Rick Schober‘s long-in-the-making – The Whole Shot – Collected Interviews with Gregory Corso seems happily immanent

Here’s Gregory, talking about Jack Kerouac

Gregory Corso (1930-2001),  buon compleanno, certifiable Beat legend.
