Author, poet, and activist John Sinclair was born on October 2, 1941 in Flint, Michigan. He changed from a small-town rock and roll fanatic and teenage disc jockey to a cultural revolutionary, pioneer of marijuana activism, radical leader, and political prisoner by the end of the 1960s.

Sinclair has published several collections of his poetry along with his major work in verse, "Fattening Frogs for Snakes: Delta Sound Suite," an investigation in verse of the Delta blues and the world that produced it. He has released more than 15 CDs of his work with music and verse, including Volumes 1 and 2 of "Fattening Frogs for Snakes: Delta Sound Suite," "Full Circle," and "White Buffalo Prayer" with Wayne Kramer, among others.
