[Aleister Crowley] behaved like a rock star decades before the concept was invented. His personal philosophy? 'Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.' Apparently, this involved becoming a heroin addict, declaring himself a god and screwing anything that moved (or didn't move -- Crowley claimed that he once had sex with a tree in Burma)."
[According to author Michael Moynihan, Crowley, the self-styled "wickedest man on earth," once performed a strange ritual in which he named a frog "Jesus" and crucified it.]
[Among Crowley's onetime devotees? Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page (whocollected Crowley artifacts and bought his old home on the banks of Loch Ness).]
