>Lewis recorded two albums in 1983 and 1985 (L'Amour and Romantic Times) that were mostly forgotten until a record collector discovered 'L'Amour' in an Edmonton flea market in 2008. Lewis recorded the album at the now defunct Music Lab in Silver Lake, which was known for being the cheapest recording studio in town and appealed and was used by punk bands such as Black Flag and Cheap Trick. Lewis' choice to record here was strange, as recounted by known photographer Ed Colver who shot Lewis' album cover, because Lewis was allegedly a wealthy stockbroker and traveled in a white convertible mercedes and was always with 'a girlfriend who looked like a model'. During the time Lewis was recording he was staying at the Beverly Hilton Hotel with his girlfriend and paid for the $250 photo-shoot with a check linked to a closed account in Malibu. The check bounced and when Ed Colver went back to the hotel to confront Lewis he had disappeared. The label that re-issued Lewis' albums in 2014 hired an investigator and narrowed the search down to somewhere in Canada. After two days of aimlessly searching they allegedly find him in plain sight sipping coffee at the front of some cafe. He had no interest in his past music or the money the label had made and told them "I just wish you guys all the best in the world.” Investigators found other pseudonyms used by him registered at other recording studios around the 2000's where he allegedly recorded 'soft religious music'. An estranged nephew that led to the discovery of Lewis' whereabouts told investigators that all he could remember was that Lewis used to live in an affluent apartment with a beautiful girlfriend and that it was furnished entirely in white.
Weird right? I've heard that it's a hoax (which is hard to believe since he was discovered) but also that he wasn't human. What do you guys think?
