an ARTSJOURNAL weblog ArtsJournal Home AJ Blog Central Main December 16, 2007 Liam O'Gallagher, R.I.P.
Our old friend Liam O'Gallagher, the artist and sound poet, checked out on Dec. 4 in Santa Barbara, Ca. He had a good run, though. He turned 90 in October. Coincidentally, the date of his death is almost the same (it's off by a day) as that of Sri Aurobindo, the yogi master whose teachings he greatly admired.
(E.g.: "An inch of experience goes farther than a yard of logic."
"The example is more powerful than the instruction."
"Yoga means a change of consciousness; a mere mental activity will not bring a change of consciousness, it can only bring a change of mind.")
Liam was buried in Santa Barbara. He is survived by Robert Rheem, his partner of 58 years.
