A gregarious and talkative Irishman behind whose often humorous nature was perhaps one of the most gifted people to arrive at the festival gates. His intellect may well have been thirty years ahead of the average man. From his writings, sadly unpublished in the main, lay the philosophy of phenomenology. His talk at the marquee in 2003 was suggested by Colin Wilson – a long time friend of Gabriel and the lecture was entitled ‘Metaphysical DNA’.We are sorry to announce that Gabriel passed away in 2007. A true genius who took strides to psychologically evolve in the coming changes ahead. His book called the sexually frank  ‘Sham to Rock’ and is a riveting read and details his post war years in London and Ireland.
