In the late sixties and early seventies, Los Angeles was a hotbed of musical creativity--the home base of Joni Mitchell, the Eagles, James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt, Jackson Browne, and Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, among many others. Now, drawing on exclusive interviews with many of the leading players, music journalist Hoskyns recreates the excitement, ferment, and energy of those years. We see the genesis of Crosby, Stills, and Nash at Joni Mitchell's house in Laurel Canyon. We see the Eagles implode in backstage fistfights after the success of their huge hit album Hotel California. And we get the real story on David Geffen and the other money men who nurtured, bankrolled--and some say corrupted--the L.A. music scene. Filled with revealing anecdotes that chronicle the drug-fueled chaos, bed-hopping antics, and enduring musical achievements of the era, this book for classic rock fans everywhere.--From publisher description.An up-close and personal portrait of the L.A. music scene between 1967 and 1976 explores the energy and impact of the era, profiling such figures as Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt, Jackson Browne, the Eagles, and Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young.
