Arthur Lee's band, Love, is widely acknowledged as one of the most influential groups of the late sixties. Led by Lee through a tempestuous history of dissolution and resurrections, their psychedelic-folk masterpiece, Forever Changes, regularly appears high in polls of the greatest albums of all time. Recent times, however, have not been so kind: in 1996, Lee was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and also received a twelve-year sentence for threatening his neighbors with a gun. Including interviews with Lee himself and guitarist Bryan Maclean, among many others, this fascinating tale reveals the dark side of the Summer of Love heroin, crime, and bitter ego battles while also tracking Lee's musical career through the post-Love years to his recent incarceration in a U.S. jail.

Arthur Lee: Alone Again Or... based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Being the long overdue biography of an underappreciated musician. It's brief, but that's not really a criticism; it's fun to read and one still picks up all manner of fact and interpretation on a cult figure of whom there was much rumor and hints of news over the years.
