Free (K) When the Music Mattered: Portraits from the 1960s - Bruce Pollock

Something a little different among the freebies on Amazon today:

When the Music Mattered: Portraits from the 1960s by Bruce Pollock


The '60s will go down in history as one of rock and roll's most turbulent decades, from the frantic gyrations of the Twist to the murder of a spectator on the killing fields of Altamont. Don't forget the Beatles, Bob Dylan, and the Woodstock Festival. The musicians operating during that decade changed forever the parameters of the popular song and obliterated the distance between artist and fan. This book, which was originally published by Holt in 1983, offers an eye on the decade through portraits of some of its major players, among them Paul Simon, Roger McGuinn (of the Byrds), Peter Tork (of the Monkees), John Sebastian (of the Lovin' Spoonful), Essra Mohawk (who sang with the Mothers of Invention), Tuli Kupferberg (of the Fugs), Marty Balin (of the Jefferson Airplane), Tracy Nelson (who led Mother Earth), Dave Van Ronk (the erstwhile Mayor of MacDougal Street) along with early '60s girl group siren Jiggs Meister (of the Angels) and John Kuse, the voice behind the doo-wop hit "Coney Island Baby" by the Excellents. Read this book to recapture a long forgotten time--especially if you were there.
