ID and connect, giving reasons. The answer is a Person.
The black motorcycle is a bonus and a giveaway in conjecture with the rest, if you have read the Person’s books.
Clue: The Person is a very famous journalist, committed suicide in 2005 by shooting self.
Hunter S Thompson, gonzo journalist and Rebel Hero extraordinaire.
The pictures are:
1. Bob Dylan (good friend).
2. Hunter at a younger age.
3. Hunter with a Ducati 900S which he’d been sent to test. His love for fast, deadly machines is evident in his writing.
4. “What if I told you I have a Vincent Black Shadow?” This is the Vincent Black Shadow, famously mentioned in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
5. Jack Nicholson (good friend).
6. Johnny Depp (good friend).
7. Logo of the Universal Life Church, from which the Doctor got his doctorate in divinity. Even I have a degree from them. I’m an ordained Minister of the ULC, so that’s Brother Anirudh Ramachandran to y’all!
