Kevan Furbank looks at the roots of psychedelic rock and examines the contributions made by some of the biggest bands of the watershed year 1967 ('the Summer of love’), including The Beatles, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, the Rolling Stones, Love, Pink Floyd and The Beach Boys.
He examines the hits and misses, the successes and failures, the bands that were born to be psychedelic and those that had psychedelia thrust upon them - sometimes with disastrous results. And he shows how the genre planted the seeds for other forms of popular music to take root and flourish.
Kevan Furbank is Managing Editor of the Irish Daily Mirror and has been a journalist on local and national newspapers for nearly 40 years. He has published books on local history and written stories, articles and columns on practically every subject under the sun. This is his third book for Sonicbond, his first two being Fairport Convention and Gong in the On Track series. His music tastes encompass prog, rock, folk and jazz and in his spare time, he likes to pretend he can play guitar, bass and mandolin. He lives in Holywood, Northern Ireland, and is married with two grown-up daughters, both of whom are better musicians than he is.
