Why does Mick Jagger sing in baby talk and bad dialect? Michael Hicks thinks he knows why. He also explains where the buzzy, fuzzy, and trippy sounds of Sixties rock and roll come from and what they signify. Interesting. Some articles get into music theory. Read full review

On Page 121 The author seems to indicate the band name Children of the Mushroom eludes to psychedelic properties of mushrooms. Actually we were thinking about having been raised as kids in a nuclear age. To us mushroom meant mushroom cloud.
