Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Beginning with the Weathermen explosion in Greenwich Village and ending with punk, the Seventies was the age of extremes, sex, drugs and, of course, rock 'n' roll. Traveling between the underground scenes of London, New York, and California, Barry Miles remembers encounters with the legends of the decade. In the Seventies is a memoir that challenges modern perceptions of the Seventies with great anecdotes featuring a larger than life cast of characters.

Barry Miles is the author of the bestseller Hippie and has written biographies of Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Frank Zappa, Jack Kerouac, and Allen Ginsberg in addition to books on The Beatles and The Clash.
