From Altamont to Ziggy Stardust, “Turning On, Tuning In” covers significant people, places, moments, and music (albums, collaborations, and songs) during what could arguably be the golden era of rock, from the years 1965 to 1975.
Named after Timothy Leary’s famous quote, “turn on, tune in, drop out”, this book provides a glimpse into an era filled with innovation. With new instruments, new techniques, and a hint of psychedelic drugs, musicians created a brand new sound unlike anything heard before. As the Vietnam War waged on, rock was no longer simply a genre, but now it was an attitude with political and rebellious undertones, but more importantly, it was a catalyst for change.
