UrbanLegend has it that once TheSixties ended and the hippies got day-jobs, he was left without a significant audience, which may have contributed to his depression and subsequent suicide in 1984. The truth is that he made most of his fortune ''after'' the 60s [[note]]''TroutFishingInAmerica'', the book for which he is most remembered, was completed in 1962, long before the hippie movement, and wasn't published until the fall of 1967, after the Summer of Love was long over.[[/note]], and hippies were only part of a much larger readership. His books were published in several dozen languages and continue to sell well in the U.S., Europe and Japan to this day. None of his books, with the exception of a few early poetry chapbooks, have ever been out of print.

He was influenced by TheBeatGeneration and embraced by hippies but did not seem to feel at home with either group. His closest hippie-like affiliations were with the [[http://www.diggers.org/alf.htm Artists Liberation Front]] and the [[http://diggers.org/ The Diggers]], a down-to-earth bunch who sought a realistic path to a totally free economy. He wrote many broadsides for [[http://diggers.org/com_co.htm The Communication Company]], including [[http://www.redhousebooks.com/galleries/freePoems/flowers.htm a well-known "valentine" about STDs]]. (Richard regarded these groups as artists doing something productive, as opposed to hippies who he thought of as do-nothing layabouts.)
