Publisher: John Wiley & SonsFormat: Hardcover
Advance praise for “Hotel California”"A British rock critic obsessed with America, Barney Hoskyns brings a genuine love as well as an outsider's keen eye to the rise and fall of the California scene in the sixties and seventies. This is a riveting story, sensitively told."—Anthony DeCurtis, Contributing Editor, “Rolling Stone”“Comprehensive and lively, ”Hotel California" offers a front-row seat on the wild ride—fueled by drugs, sex, and lots of cash—that took Southern California singer-songwriters from hot tubs and local bars to sold-out stadiums, private jets, and the bestselling album of all time."—Alan Light, author of “The Skills to Pay the Bills: The Story of the Beastie Boys”“One of our finest pop historians reappraises a neglected and often maligned milieu. Barney Hoskyns deftly evokes not just the decadence but the sense of discovery rooted in 1960s idealism and fostered by a gaggle of record industry mavericks who, for a brief period, managed to make art and business coexist.”—Simon Reynolds, author of “Rip It Up and Start Again”
