Michael McClure

From Academic Kids

Michael McClure (October 20, 1932) is an American poet and playwright.

One of five poets who read at the famous Six Gallery reading in 1955 (along with Allen Ginsberg), McClure's works, along with those of Ginsberg, Gary Snyder, Philip Whalen, and Lawrence Ferlinghetti are often associated with both the Beat Generation and the later San Francisco poetry movement.

An odd footnote to his long poetic career is his co-authorship (with B. Neuwerth) of the playground-rhyme-like popular song, Mercedes-Benz for Janis Joplin.

McClure collaborative performances with Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek fuse spoken word poetry and improvised jazz piano.
