Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Veteran record producer and journalist Harvey Kubernik offers conversations with famous people who speak very freely about the pop culture and music of the 1960s: Ray Manzarek, Berry Gordy, Grace Slick, Andrew Loog Oldham, Jim Keltner, Jack Nitzsche, Chrissie Hynde, Ravi Shankar, and Keith Richards.

Synopsis:

Veteran record producer and journalist Harvey Kubernik is a Los Angeles insider with ties to some of the most influential performers and producers in the music business. In this examination of the music and pop culture of the 1960s, we read Kubernik's conversations with famous people who speak very freely: Ray Manzarek, Berry Gordy, Grace Slick, Andrew Loog Oldham, Jim Keltner, Jack Nitzsche, Chrissy Hynde, Ravi Shankar, and Keith Richards. There is also an epilog on Roger Steffens, a renowned scholar of reggae music.

No matter how much you think you know about the pop culture of the 1960s, you will find new information here. Certain predictable topics--the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan--come up in almost every interview. Other names prominent in the interviews are Phil Spector and Sonny Bono.

Reading Kubernik's interview with Marianne Faithfull, we learn that she and Mick Jagger often listened to Vivaldi and Marvin Gaye in the mornings; Steven Van Zandt reveals that he is the son of a Goldwater Republican; Allen Ginsberg discloses that Bob Dylan tried, unsuccessfully, to get Phil Spector to produce a recording by Ginsberg.

It seems like Harvey's] been around forever and knows everybody. Which is one reason why this book is so cool. You've gotta read it, 'cause Harvey's definitely got the inside stuff.--Brian Wilson, member of The Beach Boys

The true history of rock and roll and pop music is an oral history--people talking about the great music and how it happened and their experiences being part of it. Harvey Kubernik's wonderful book is a set of backstage passes to the greatest show on Earth--and a terrific opportunity for readers everywhere to learn about one of the wondersof the modern world directly from the men and women who've been at the center of it.--Paul Williams, founder of Crawdaddy and author of Bob Dylan, Performing Artist
