High on Rebellion: Inside the Underground at Max's Kansas City

Overview

Max's Kansas City, an all-in-one restaurant-bar-nightclub, opened its doors in December 1965 at 213 Park Avenue South, near Union Square, in Manhattan, just as American popular culture was poised on the brink of a seismic shift whose aftershocks continue to reverberate. Max's quickly became the place to be in the nexus of underground life where art, sex, drugs, rock and roll, and Superstars ignited a cultural conflagration that will never be extinguished.

Overview

Max's Kansas City, an all-in-one restaurant-bar-nightclub, opened its doors in December 1965 at 213 Park Avenue South, near Union Square, in Manhattan, just as American popular culture was poised on the brink of a seismic shift whose aftershocks continue to reverberate. Max's quickly became the place to be in the nexus of underground life where art, sex, drugs, rock and roll, and Superstars ignited a cultural conflagration that will never be extinguished. Everyone who was anyone was there (and many Anybodies were there before they became Somebodies): Mick Jagger, Faye Dunaway, Larry Rivers, Jim Morrison, Julie Christie, Richard Avedon, Patti Smith, Allen Ginsberg, Tennessee Williams, Robert Mapplethorpe, John Waters, Halston, Bianca Jagger, Philip Glass, Bob Dylan, Keith Richards, Fran Lebowitz, Jane Fonda, Warren Beatty, Tuesday Weld, Twiggy, Frank Zappa, Peter Max, Joan Baez, John Lennon, Yoko Ono, The Velvet Underground - and the list goes on and on. High on Rebellion celebrates Max's with over 200 never-before-published black-and-white photographs of face after famous face, you-could-have-been-there-profiles, memorabilia, and hundreds of personal reminiscences and testimonials: Together these make for a tribute to a place that was like no other, where the creative chemistry of thousands of artists, film-makers, musicians, writers, poets, photographers, models, movie stars, and socialites combusted into the longest-running party in history - and a crucible for the culture and history of an era.

What People Are Saying

Andy Warhol
Max's Kansas City was the exact spot where Pop Art and Pop Life came together in the sixties.
David Johansen
I went to Iggy's shows upstairs when he cut himself with glass and was rolling around in it. I'm sitting there thinking, this guy wants to die.
Dee Dee Ramone
I used to go back and forth between CBGB's and Max's. Wherever they would take me. That's the truth. I'm greedy.
Legs McNeil
I usually went to CBGB's every night and I went to Max's if somebody was playing. In my poor white trash mind, I though Max's was a bit more upscale and out of my league.
Lou Reed
It was a speedy world -- New York -- and revolutions were taking place in it -- art, life and rock 'n' roll. A young reckless nighttime bunch we were. The dark brigade who never saw the sun.
Philip Glass
People talked about art. They threw each other through windows because they disagreed about art. To what extent the visual content was the real content or whether the ideas were the content -- this is what people went through windows for.
Terry Southern
Max's was like one of the lower circles of Dante's Inferno filled with Bosch and Bueughel characters.
William S. Burroughs
Max's was at the intersection of everything.
