Richard Neville: Oz magazine co-founder dies aged 74
AUSTRALIAN author and social commentator Richard Neville died on Sunday at the age of 74 after being diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.
Neville made a splash in Australia and the United Kingdom in the 1960s as the co-founder of counterculture magazine Oz, which was known for its use of satire and pop art alongside serious journalism.
He shot to fame in 1963 when he published the magazine, in partnership with his friends artist Martin Sharp and editor Richard Walsh, which specialised in dissent and was known for pushing boundaries.
Published on April Fool's Day, the first issue of the magazine sold 6,000 copies by lunchtime on the first day it hit the streets. Below is a video which truly displays his wisdom:
