Another Little Piece of My Heart: My Life of Rock and Revolution in the '60s
By: Richard Goldstein (author)Paperback
In 1961, Richard Goldstein saw Bob Dylan perform for the first time at Carnegie Hall. Rock music was in its infancy, and revolution was in the air. Criticism of the genre didn't yet exist but, as it began to change music and politics for ever, the serious discussion of rock became a thriving institution. Aged just twenty-two in 1966, and the first rock critic in New York, Goldstein became a pivotal figure in the industry. Forging close relationships with huge names - Jim Morrison, Brian Wilson and Janis Joplin to name just three - his life became a whirlwind of politics, sex and rock and roll. Another Little Piece of My Heart is an unparalleled document of rock and revolution.
Richard Goldstein is one of the founders of rock criticism, beginning with his 'Pope Eye' column in the Village Voice in 1966. His reporting led to a long career as a commentator on culture, politics and sexuality. His work has appeared in many publications, including the New York Times, Harpers, the Guardian and the Nation, and he served as arts editor and then executive editor of the the Village Voice. His gay activism earned him a GLAAD award as columnist of the year. His books include the bestselling The Poetry of Rock, Reporting the Counterculture and Homocons. He is currently an adjunct professor at Hunter College of the City University of New York.
