9780571232864: Apathy for the Devil: A Seventies Memoir

Pitched somewhere between Almost Famous and Withnail & I, "Apathy for the Devil" is a unique document of this most fascinating and troubling of decades - a story of inspiration, success and serious burn out. As a 20-something college dropout Nick Kent's first five interviews as a young writer were with the MC5, Captain Beefheart, The Grateful Dead, Iggy Pop and Lou Reed. Along with Charles Shaar Murray and Ian MacDonald he would go on to define and establish the NME as the home of serious music writing. And as apprentice to Lester Bangs, boyfriend of Chrissie Hynde, confidant of Iggy Pop, trusted scribe for Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones, and early member of the Sex Pistols, he was witness to both the beautiful and the damned of this turbulent decade.

Review:


Milwaukee
Shepherd Express, 11/8/10
“[A] compelling page-turner and revealing look at the origins of heavy metal, space rock, glitter and punk.”

Crawdaddy! , 11/24/10
“At once sentimental, salacious, and sometimes shocking slice of essential music memoir...If there is redemption in Kent’s decade of groping in the dark, it’s that he lived to illuminate it; his emotional appreciation of rock’s art prevails over 30 years of chitchat and theory about it...A whistle blower and old-time investigative journalist, Kent fulfills a necessary function as truth teller in the flighty discourse of pop culture. Reporting back from a time when the complicity of the press and the audience converged to become the great rock ‘n’ roll swindle, he’s done his due diligence and given us more than a glimpse behind the curtain.”

Detroit Metrotimes, 11/30/10
“One of the more fascinating reads of the year.”

 

Metroland, 12/13/10
“Englishman Nick Kent had a front-row seat for the tumult of music that spilled out of the ’60s into the ’70s...He depicts it all with the same honest flair that put him on the map as a journalist in the first place.”  

RollingStone.com, “25 Coolest Rock Memoirs”

The Onion’s
AV Club, 9/1/10
Apathy ping-pongs easily between personal reminiscences and more general overviews of rock’s shape each year.”

Goldmine, 10/1“A vibrant story, an autobiography that never hits auto-pilot”
Library Journal
, 9/24
“A candid, graphic, and fascinating memoir of [Kent’s] 1970s... Amazing true stories on every page... Highly recommended for anyone interested in the dark days of rock and in British rock journalism.” Hartford Advocate, 10/15/10

“Nearly every page of Apathy contains a scene about which you find yourself muttering out loud, ‘No way,’ and two pages later Kent has fleshed it out so completely that you can almost hear him responding ‘Way’...If you ever wanted to be a fly on the wall to rock ‘n’ roll debauchery, Nick Kent is your man.”

Buffalo News
Apathy is not some sordid tale of rockstar trainspotting...Kent mattered (and matters still) because he was a great writer, a passionate music love and a man able to tap into the cultural zeitgeist at will. Essential reading for anyone who cares about the rock culture of the ‘70s.”

Glide Magazine, 10/27/10
“[A]nyone who can write a memoir that includes folks like David Bowie, Chrissie Hynde, Lou Reed, and Keith Richards and never comes off as a name-dropper must be telling a pretty good story, wouldn’t you say?”
