Popular passages

Page vii - The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.
Page 217 - I'd never heard of Hendrix. Then someone said, 'You've got to see the guitar player with John Hammond.' I went straight across the street and saw him. Hendrix knew who I was and, that day, in front of my eyes, he burned me to death. I didn't even get my guitar out. H-bombs were going off, guided missiles were flying — I can't tell you the sounds he was getting out of his instrument. He was getting every sound I was ever to hear him get, right there in that room with a Stratocaster, a twin, a Maestro...
Page vii - n' roll smells phony and false. It is sung, played and written for the most part by cretinous goons and by means of its almost imbecilic reiteration, and sly. lewd, in plain fact, dirty lyrics • • • it manages to be the martial music of every sideburned delinquent on the face of the earth.
Page 96 - And in the end, The love you take Is equal to The love You make The drone behind it all was the note, C, right there in the soul of his brain.
Page 141 - Because something is happening here, but you don't know what it is, do you, Mister Jones? — Bob Dylan, Ballad of a Thin Man...
Page 44 - If I could find a white man who had the Negro sound and the Negro feel, I could make a billion dollars.
Page 31 - I felt then that if I could take, say, a Dixieland tune and drop the first and third beats, and accentuate the second and fourth, and add a beat the listeners could clap to as well as dance this would be what they were after.
Page vii - Sinatra later added that rock and roll was "the most brutal, ugly, desperate, vicious form of expression it has been my misfortune to hear.
