MUSE, ODALISQUE, HANDMAIDEN: A Girl's Life in the Incredible String Band
Between 1967 and 1971 Simpson lived with the Incredible String Band, morphing from English student to West Coast hippie and, finally, bassist in leathers. The band's image adorned psychedelic posters and its music was the theme for an alternative lifestyle. But like most utopias, the ISB's imploded, leading from psychedelic dream-world to the harsh alternate realities of Scientology and celebrity. Photos, some in color.
