WENT TO SEE THE GYPSY is a fascinating account of rock’s golden age, told by a writer who has been fascinated by its music and musicians since the Beatles invaded America. You will find in its pages memories and assessments of all of the greatest rock bands, including the Beatles, the Stones, the Who, U2, the Doors, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Bob Dylan and the Band, AC/DC, Cream, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, and many others. You’ll also hear the author’s favorites, including Jeff Beck, Minnie Riperton, James Jamerson, Karla Bonoff, and neglected but great groups like Nazz and Spirit. In addition to being a fan, Mark Fogarty has also played in bands, recorded and performed live, and written for music publications, and he describes these experiences as well and how they added to the excitement and joy rock music has brought him over the decades. It all adds up to an amazing journey to the heart of rock and roll!
