Today is Beat poet Gregory Corso's birthday (born March 26, 1930). Corso appeared in a number of Jack Kerouac's works: Yuri Gligoric in The Subterraneans; Raphael Urso in Book of Dreams and Desolation Angels (also as Gregory in the latter); and, Manuel in Beat Generation.
We remembered Gregory back on January 17 (click HERE).
You can read a bio and some of his poetry HERE.
Happy Birthday in Beat heaven, Mr. Corso.
