Take a trip through rock 'n' roll's haziest, craziest period, beginning with the Beatles and Bob Dylan turning on in a New York hotel, and continuing on through two-decades of wonderful, colorful, history-changing music. From psychedelic Woodstock warriors like Hendrix and the Jefferson Airplane to psycho-stereo adventurers Pink Floyd; from the post-hippie bliss of Neil Young and cosmic cowboy Willie Nelson to the druggy blues of Black Sabbath and the hemp-happy rhythms of Peter Tosh and Bob Marley, Out of Our Heads gleefully celebrates music's most creative minds - and their chemically induced expansion. This is the rare book that is unafraid to bask in the groovy good times of rock 'n' roll without the politically correct preaching that has helped stifle the party. To all those who have ever listened to Dark Side of the Moon on a pair of headphones and said Wow: this book is for you.
