Arthur Lee: Alone Again Or...

Arthur Lee: Alone Again Or...

by Barney Hoskins




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.

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.
