Product Details


“Required reading . . . 1973 is a turning point in popular music—the border between hippie-ethos ’60s rock ’n’ roll and conspicuous-consumption excess ’70s rock.”New York Post
“Loud and boisterous . . . Like a good vinyl-era single, it’s over before it wears out its welcome. You may even want to flip it over and start again when you’re finished.”Fort Worth Star-Telegram
“You don’t have to love the music or personas of the three bands highlighted here . . . to appreciate the vital roles that all three played in creating the modern rock star. . . . [Walker] is convincing and entertaining in explaining why 1973 was a seminal year in rock.”The Daily Beast
“[There’s] so much rock n’ roll history packed inside.”GQ
“Very well written . . . It gives an intellectual immersion into these bands’ lives.”
“[Walker] argues for [1973] as a tipping point, when big tours—and bigger money—became a defining ethos in rock music.”NPR
