Unlike their rock 'n' roll predecessors, many rock musicians of the mid-sixties came to consider themselves as artists, as self-conscious makers of a new sonic medium. Sixties Rock offers a provocative look at these artists and their innovations in two pivotal rock genres: garage rock and psychedelic music.Delving into everything from harmony to hardware, Michael Hicks shows what makes this music tick and what made it unique in its time. Now available for the first time in paperback, this "angular portrait" of an essentially experimental music illuminates the art of rock in the 1960s.
