Descrizione prodotto


"What a long, strange trip it's been."

Welcome to another in the Legends of Rock & Roll series.

The Legends of Rock & Roll series is about the music we have listened to over the past fifty years. This is a mini-biography of the band The Grateful Dead, but even more importantly, it's about the music that they created; the songs that affected a generation.

The Dead were the most important band of the psychedelic era (the last half of the Sixties) and, arguably, one of the most ground breaking bands in the history of Rock & Roll. They gradually increased their fans until hundreds of thousands would show up for a concert. The Grateful Dead are almost single-handedly responsible for keeping the spirit of the Sixties alive through the next twenty years.

This is the story of The Grateful Dead.

This is an unauthorized fan tribute.

HASH(0x9f7c09fc) su 5 stelle The Grateful Dead - Rich in Fact and Feeling 3 ottobre 2013
Di Julia Busch - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I am a huge fan of James Hoag and his unofficial tributes to the bands and the musicians who comprise them, their lives, quirks, and the incidents that made both the bands and the individuals who they became. I came away from this one with music singing in my ears, a feeling that I knew each of the musicians personally. I soaked up the ambiance of Haight-Asbury during the "flower power" LSD era. I experienced the lightning storm that turned Woodstock into a sea of mud. I could "see" the Hells Angels blocking the Grateful Dead as they tried to check their instruments at the concert at Alamont Raceway. And came away with the experience that I was truly there.

Besides the richness of the material and scrupulous, extensive amount of research that went into this well-written book, I love the suggestions and "what to look for" on YouTube, clips that bring the reader even closer to the era, psyche and the sounds. Excellent book. Highly recommended.

I love to read books that give the story behind a band and I always particularly enjoy James Hoag's books. This book talks about each band member, starting with their childhood and following them through to their band years. It also talks about how the band's name came about, many of their albums and how they came about and the trials and tribulations that the band went through. If you are a Grateful Dead fan, I highly recommend that you read this book.

It was great to get a personal perspective of the Grateful Dead from a fan. I loved the biographies of the founding members. The personal anecdotes throughout the book added to the content. Interesting stories about how the Grateful Dead's name came to be and the trials and tribulations that the band faced. Provides life lessons to kids about the long term effects of illegal drug use. Highly recommended!

Whether or not you're a fan of the Grateful Dead, this book is filled with insights about the band, their fans and the musical climate in which they thrived. Backgrounds of all the band members, how they met, how they pioneered new musical techniques - these are all laid out by a music aficionado whose love of music shines through on every page. Highly recommended.

The Grateful Dead by James Hoag is just another music group Hoag happens to know inside and out! Is there anything you don't know about music groups past Hoag?

The book is laid out well with useful bits of information that for me, trigger memories from back in my younger years. Always a pleasure to read. Always learning. Thanks for the smile Hoag!
