By 1970, the hippie dream of the 60s was dead—the soundtrack to the revolution had become a multimillion-dollar industry. But four years later, emerging from the rubble of rock, was a music whose hard edge matched the lifestyle of its home turf—New York’s East Village. Punk’s initiators—Richard Hell, Tom Verlaine, and Patti Smith—had one foot in 19th-century French symbolist poetry and the other in the raw sound of predecessors like the Velvet Underground. Now, in New York Rocker, Gary Valentine offers an inside account of this little-documented era. He talks about the luminaries—like Debbie Harry, Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, David Bowie, Devo, and the New York Dolls—and the gigs at CBGBs hitting the news as Warhol and his glittering crew descended.

Gary Lachman, as Gary Valentine, was a founder member of Blondie, and wrote many of the group's early hits. This book is the story of the world from which Blondie grew, with rare and intimate insight, and includes anecdotes of his life alongside other luminaries of the era with whom he performed, including Iggy Pop. His first book for Sidgwick is Turn Off Your Mind, a history of the arc and roots of the occult counterculture of the Sixties. This is its natural sequel for the Seventies.
