Wavy Gravy Biography (Wikipedia)

Hugh Nanton Romney (born May 15, 1936) — known as Wavy Gravy — is an American entertainer and activist for peace best known for his role at Woodstock, as well as for his hippie persona and countercultural beliefs. He has reported that his moniker was given to him by B.B. King at the Texas International Pop Festival in 1969.

Romney has founded or co-founded several organizations, including the activist commune, the Hog Farm, and later, as Wavy Gravy, Camp Winnarainbow and the Seva Foundation. As well, he founded the Phurst Church of Phun,[when?] a secret society of comics and clowns that aimed to support ending of the Vietnam War through the political theater, and has adopted a clown persona in support of his political activism, and more generally as a form of entertainment work,[not verified in body] including as the official clown of the Grateful Dead.

As Wavy Gravy, he has had two radio shows on Sirius Satellite Radio's Jam On station, and a documentary film based on his life, Saint Misbehavin': The Wavy Gravy Movie, was released in late 2010 to generally positive reviews.
