  Richard - Lamont was a very talented man and beautiful soul, not to mention the definitive Hud. As I heard it, he made the mistake of smoking in bed, fell asleep, and his bed caught on fire, killing him. I remember there was a horrific picture of him on fire at his window on the front page of one of the NY newspapers. A devastating tragedy.

  the national anti draft rally and got to perform in front of 
  a hundred thousand people on the capital steps

  i have a sad question
  when i was a little boy and first saw hair in 1968
  i was always curious what happened to lamont washington
  i understand there was a fire and a horrible tragedy

    hi nina, i was the one who has posted the message on the listings.
    michael had suggested it to me, and i finally got around to it. i had
    spoken to you a few times before about the archives, and soon enough, i
    will be speaking to you about my use of some of the pictures from, as we
    had previously spoken. for the first phase of my project, i received the
    highest grade in my class of 40, so as of now, we are doing great!
    right now i have interview transcripts from my interviews with tom
    o'horgan, michael butler and galt macdermot. i am working on the one
    from jim rado, though my handwriting is a little scratchy. haha. i'd
    like to thank everybody for their help and contributions. i will be
    calling and emailing people soon with the few questions i have about the
    as for what my purpose is...my professor Dr. Felicia Ruff at Wagner
    College asked me to "go out and find cool stuff" about the show. I
    figured, what's cooler than the people themselves?! (Tom O'Horgan
    claimed there were a lot of answers to that question!) That's where I
    got the idea to hunt people down and interview them. Don't worry, i'm
    not out to deface anybody. I'm simply looking for first-hand
    recollections of everything.
    So if you guys know of people who I should get into contact with, or
    would know how I could do so, I have no particular goal other than to
    find all of the first hand material that I can. I work over the phone,
    in person, through email. Anything that fits to what you guys would like
    to do. Again, my phone number is 718-390-9174. I am out for most of the
    day, trying to pay off next semester, but am usually around in the
    evenings. Thank you again for all of your help!
