Life on the Road: The Incredible Rock 'n' Roll Adventures of Dinky Dawsonby Dinky Dawson, Carter Alan
Life on the Road captures the excitement, experimentation, and enthusiasm of rock's most explosive era. In this unforgettable memoir, Stuart (Dinky) Dawson takes us on the road with such rock and roll legends as the original Fleetwood Mac, The Byrds, Steely Dan, the Kinks, Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, Lou Reed, the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Jeff Beck, B.B. King, and the J. Geils Band, among other stellar musical artists.
Offering rare, personal, and often insightful glimpses into the unruly reality of life on the road, Dinky provides behind-the-scene views of such after-hours escapades as Fleetwood Mac's introduction to America by the Hell's Angels, as well as their involvement in the notorious Grateful Dead drug bust in New Orleans; life lived helter skelter in Los Angeles with Terry Melcher and The Byrds during the Charlie Manson murders; drawing extra amps from the electric chair at Sing Sing Prison for a Joan Baez concert; and traveling and recording with Lou Reed during the drug-fueled days of 'Berlin' and 'Rock and Roll Animal.'
