Confessions of a Marijuana Eater: A Songwriter's Memoir

Bobby Gosh

Confessions of a Marijuana Eater: A Songwriter's Memoir by Bobby GoshSongwriter Bobby Gosh's memoir Confessions of a Marijuana Eater is part biography, popular music history, personal philosophy, and of course, public acknowledgement of his career-spanning use of marijuana/cannabis. By 1952, when Gosh started touring, using marijuana was not something one publicized. The Federal Bureau of Narcotics called it the "devil weed and intended to round up musicians who played "bad" music - jazz - on marijuana charges; the exploitative film "Reefer Madness" was on the circuit through the 1940s and '50s, and cannabis use was criminalized and mandatory minimum sentences...

In this memoir, full of revelatory and previously unknown anecdotal observations of these musical giants, Glenn...

Fleetwood Mac on Fleetwood Mac: Interviews and Encounters

Sean Egan

Fleetwood Mac on Fleetwood Mac: Interviews and Encounters by Sean EganFleetwood Mac was a triumph from the beginning-their first album was the UK's bestselling album of 1968. After some low points-when founder Peter Green left, some fans felt that the band continuing was sacrilege-Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks joined, and the band's 1977 album Rumours became one of history's immortals, a true classic that remained in the charts for years and public affection forever.  In the press, the ethereal Californian Stevie Nicks, the tormented rocker Lindsey Buckingham, the dignified English rose Christine McVie, the blunt-speaking John McVie, and the loquacious...

Sweet Dreams and Flying Machines: The Life and Music of James Taylor

Mark Ribowsky

Sweet Dreams and Flying Machines: The Life and Music of James Taylor by Mark RibowskyIn 1970 a scraggly, antiheroic young man from North Carolina by way of Massachusetts began  presenting a comforting new sound, a kind never heard before. Within a year, when young ears sought a new sound, there was "Fire and Rain" and "You've Got a Friend," and a new Southern California-fed branch of pop music. Taylor was its reluctant leader. Remarkably, Taylor has survived: his 2015 release, Before This World, edged out Taylor Swift and went to #1 on the charts. Today he is in better physical and probably mental condition than during the whirlwind when he influenced music so heavily, the...
