High Notes: A Rock Memoir


14 items left

- +

Heads up, Deadheads and fans of 60's rock: Richard Loren was there, booking gigs for Jefferson Airplane, The Doors, Jerry Garcia, and The Grateful Dead--managing the latter for several years. In his soulful memoir, Mr. Loren reflects with humor and class on his love of music and what it was like to work and be friends with the people who made it. The chapters on his travels to Egypt are especially poetic, culminating in the staging of a Grateful Dead concert at the foot of a pyramid at Gizah Sound and Light Theater in 1978.

Pair this excellent and entertaining book with one of our retro concert posters (like the Doors poster from their December 10, 1967 show--during which lead singer Jim Morrison was arrested, and then bailed out by Loren) or a groovy Grateful Dead tie dye, creating the ultimate gifting bundle for your favorite music-lover!
