In this breathtaking cultural history filled with exclusive, never-before-revealed details, celebrated rock journalist Joel Selvin tells the definitive story of the Rolling Stones’ infamous Altamont concert in San Francisco, the disastrous historic event that marked the end of the idealistic 1960s. In the annals of rock history, the Altamont Speedway Free Festival on December 6, 1969, has long been seen as the distorted twin of Woodstock—the day that shattered the Sixties’ promise of peace and love when a concertgoer was killed by a member of the Hells Angels, the notorious biker club acting as security. While most people know of the events from the film Gimme Shelter, the whole story has remained buried in varied accounts, rumor, and myth—until now. Altamont explores rock’s darkest day, a fiasco that began well before the climactic death of Meredith Hunter and continued beyond that infamous December night. Joel Selvin probes every aspect of the show—from the Stones’ hastily planned tour preceding the concert to the bad acid that swept through the audience to other deaths that also occurred that evening—to capture the full scope of the tragedy and its aftermath. He also provides an in-depth look at the Grateful Dead’s role in the events leading to Altamont, examining the band’s behind-the-scenes presence in both arranging the show and hiring the Hells Angels as security. The product of twenty years of exhaustive research and dozens of interviews with many key players, including medical staff, Hells Angels members, the stage crew, and the musicians who were there, and featuring sixteen pages of color photos, Altamont is the ultimate account of the final event in rock’s formative and most turbulent decade.

Los Angeles in the 1960s gave the world some of the greatest music in rock 'n' roll history: "California Dreamin'" by the Mamas and the Papas, "Mr. Tambourine Man" by the Byrds, and "Good Vibrations" by the Beach Boys, a song that magnificently summarized the joy and beauty of the era in three-and-a-half minutes. But there was a dark flip side to the fun fun fun of the music, a nexus between naïve young musicians and the fringe elements that exploited the decade's peace-love-and-flowers ethos, all fueled by sex, drugs, and overnight success. One surf music superstar unwittingly subsidized the kidnapping of Frank Sinatra Jr. The transplanted Texas singer Bobby Fuller might have been murdered by the Mob in what is still an unsolved case. And after hearing Charlie Manson sing, Neil Young recommended him to the president of Warner Bros. Records. Manson's ultimate rejection by the music industry likely led to the infamous murders that shocked a nation. Everybody Had an Ocean chronicles the migration of the rock 'n' roll business to Southern California and how the artists flourished there. The cast of characters is astonishing—Brian and Dennis Wilson of the Beach Boys, Jan and Dean, eccentric producer Phil Spector, Cass Elliot, Sam Cooke, Ike and Tina Turner, Joni Mitchell, and scores of others—and their stories form a modern epic of the battles between innocence and cynicism and joy and terror. You'll never hear that beautiful music in quite the same way.

It’s all too beautiful! From Woodstock to “The Banana Splits,” from “Sgt. Pepper” to “H.R. Pufnstuf,” from Altamont to “The Partridge Family,” GROOVY is a far-out trip to the era of lava lamps and love beads. This profusely illustrated hardcover book, in psychedelic color, features interviews with icons of grooviness such as Peter Max, Brian Wilson, Peter Fonda, Melanie, David Cassidy, members of the Jefferson Airplane, Cream, the Doors, the Cowsills and Vanilla Fudge; and cast members of groovy TV shows like “The Monkees,” “Laugh-In” and “The Brady Bunch.” GROOVY revisits the era’s rock festivals, movies, art—even comics and cartoons, from the 1968 ‘mod’ Wonder Woman to R. Crumb. A color-saturated pop-culture history written and designed by Mark Voger (author of the acclaimed book MONSTER MASH), GROOVY is one trip that doesn’t require dangerous chemicals!

Sie werden Forrest Leos unehrenhaften Helden verfallen! London, Pocklington Place, um 1850: Lionel Savage, ein fauler Aristokrat, 22 Jahre alt, Dichter, kann keine Zeile mehr zu Papier bringen, seitdem er geheiratet hat. Fest entschlossen, seiner untragbaren Lage durch Selbstmord zu entkommen, will Savage sich erschießen. Doch dann fällt ihm ein, dass er das seinem treuen Butler Simmons nicht zumuten kann. Man bedenke nur all die Körperflüssigkeiten, die es aufzuwischen gälte. Kaum hat er also den Selbstmordgedanken verworfen, spaziert ein freundlicher Gentleman in sein Arbeitszimmer: der Teufel höchstpersönlich. Der Gentleman ist ein wahrer Bericht, die Gefahren der Liebe und der Ehe, Duelle und Beinahe-Duelle, Dichter und Anarchisten betreffend. Ein Roman, wie er bisher noch nicht geschrieben wurde: exzentrisch, viktorianisch, waghalsig – ein großes Stück Abenteuerliteratur. »In seinem Debütroman gelingt es Leo, die Konventionen viktorianischer Fiktion zu parodieren. Wahnsinnig witzige Dialoge und komische Komplikationen runden die Geschichte ab.« PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

Wenn einer wirklich über die Hells Angels schreiben darf, dann Hunter S. Thompson »Der harte Kern, die Outlaw-Elite, das waren die Hells Angels.« Für seinen brisanten Insiderbericht über den Aufstieg der Hells Angels zur größten und berüchtigtsten Motorradgang der Welt nahm Thompson Mitte der sechziger Jahre über ein Jahr lang am exzessiven, gewalttätigen und freiheitsliebenden Leben der Angels teil. Das Kultbuch, das Hunter S. Thompson bekannt machte – jetzt zur Debatte als Neuausgabe.
