(*1943)

Muzikant, zahradník a drvoštěp, farmář a básník, saxofonista a textař legendární undergroundové skupiny The Plastic People of the Universe, po zahradnické škole v Mělníce studoval pět let evangelickou teologickou fakultu. Farářem se nakonec nestal, ale celý život sázel stromy – bude jich ke stu tisícům.
Byl zatčen a odsouzen v procesu se skupinou The Plastic People of the Universe, po propuštění z vězení byl donucen k emigraci. Žil pak s rodinou v Kanadě. Po patnácti letech se vrátil do Čech, kde se zas věnuje hudbě, zahradám a literatuře. Je autorem několika básnických sbírek a jeho texty patří k těm nejzajímavějším z konce minulého století.
V nakladatelství Meander vyšly jeho příběhy pro děti v knížce Všude je střed světa ilustrované Matějem Formanem.
