British publisher Felix Dennis, who co-edited 1960s underground magazine Oz and went on to build a magazine empire, has died. He was 67 and had cancer.

An enthusiastic participant in the 1960s counter-culture, Dennis came to prominence as a defendant in the 1971 trial of Oz for “conspiracy to corrupt public morals.”

Dennis and his co-accused were defended by lawyer and novelist John Mortimer and eventually acquitted on appeal.

Dennis, who once claimed to have spent $100 million on “sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll,” became a prolific poet in later life.
