Larry ‘DJ PreSkool’ Weissman has dropped acid naked on the roof during a thunderstorm, burned down a bank in Boston, hung with the Hells Angels, raised a family, led and retired from a successful IT career, took up DJing at age 50, and has taken amounts of psychedelic drugs that would melt the mind of a less evolved human.
