Straight Whisky: A Living History of Sex, Drugs, and Rock 'n' Roll on the Sunset Strip

Bonus Books, Inc., 2003 - 427 páginas
'Straight Whisky' is the first book ever to chronicle all the music, magic and mayhem of the Sunset Strip. Erik Quisling and Austin Williams have created a unique multi-levelled portrait that is unlike any other rock book on record. With its sweeping historical analysis and down and dirty details, 'Straight Whisky' pulls no punches and leaves no stone unturned. Quisling has drawn upon extensive research to chronicle the ways in which music on the Sunset Strip has both shaped and reflected the American experience since 1964. Williams has chosen sixteen of the most memorable events from the period and developed them into dramatic narratives that offer an intensely intimate view of this incredible story. Together, along with dozens of rare photos and original interviews with the rock stars who were there when it all happened, these perspectives provide a comprehensive look at the most famous stretch of rock 'n' roll real estate on Earth: the famed 'rock block' of Sunset Boulevard. Here are the stories that have been whispered about for decades. Now they can be told out loud for the first time.
