Overview

Them Changes by Jim Paris

One of Jim Paris' first jobs after serving in the Army from 1962 to 1965 was in the mailroom of the entertainment public relations giant, Rogers and Cowan. He spent his nights exploring and enjoying the clubs, music, sex and drugs that defined the Hollywood scene in the late 60s. He formed Paris Management, Inc. a multi-media company involved with television, record, and concert production based in San Francisco in 1970 and began working with solo artists, garage bands and assorted performers.
This book is as much about an insider's personal and professional life during the rock and roll scene of the 60s, 70s and into the 80s as it is about the seminal moments in history . . . including the sex, drugs and incredible music . . . that so many would have given anything to experience, but were born too late.

A while back a friend suggested this book and I had forgotten all about it and by luck I happen to see it at my local B&N and picked it up. I'm sure glad I did, this guy's story is a trip through the surreal and magical 60s and 70s. Paris tripped the light fantastic wherever he went. If you want to trip through craziness of the Sunset Strip or Haight Ashbury during the classic age of Rock and Roll, then read this and enjoy.

I just finished reading "Them Changes" by Jim Paris and was left wondering how he managed to survive through it all. His young life living in Mexico then back to California where he was born was just short of absolute insanity. Then after serving 3 years in the army in the early 60s he returned home and his life got even crazier. Living in Hollywood during the days of "Drugs, Sex and Rock n Roll" eventually got him involved in the music industry and he produced several acts that led him to working with Buddy Miles, and once again his life came close to insanity. I recommend this book. It will guide you through his journey and the world of rock n roll during the iconic 60's 70s and into the 80s.

I was born and raised in Hollywood and like Mr. Paris, I experienced all that the Sunset Strip, Laurel Canyon, and the rest of Hollywood during the 60s and 70s had to offer. I, too, went to all the local clubs and parties that he speaks of and I can attest to the wildness of the psychedelic, private back stage and general crazed Hollywood Rock n Roll parties that he was part of. I probably partied with him in some dark corner somewhere. This is a book that brought back some amazing memories and whether you were there or not Mr. Paris will put you in the middle of all that was happening in the L.A. and San Francisco Rock n Roll scene during a time when we were all wild and free.

This book is proof that Rock and Roll just, as some song says, "It Ain't Easy." What this guy went through before getting involved in the world of music was more than most. Then he gets into the biz of rock and roll and for the next 20 years he gets into the depths of the crazed "Sex, Drugs, and Rock&Roll" ride of the sixties, seventies and even into the eighties. What a trip.... a must read for all who were there and for all who missed it all.

I've now read "Them Changes" twice and I still can't believe the incredible things that the author had to put up with and go through in his young years, let alone during his crazy rock and roll lifestyle. I highly recommend this book for anyone who has ever wondered what it would have been to live through the sixties and seventies in California. Jim Paris illustrates the life style of a hippie rock and roll entrepreneur at its core.

Having grown up in Atlanta I missed all the action that was going on in the west coast during the 60s and 70s. Jim Paris sure tells it like it must have been and by everything I ever read or heard about the rock and roll scene there, he obviously was right there in the center of it all. This book tells it tells it all and makes me relive those days through him. Well done Mr. Paris. I recommend this book to anyone who ever loved the 60s and drugs, sex, and rock and roll

Wow.... Loved this trip back in time when Rock and Roll was changing the world. Interesting look into the 60s, and 70s and the creation of so many rock legends. Jim Paris tells it like it was without glamorizing anyone or anything, least of all himself. If you get the chance and are interested in what was happening in the scene of Los Angeles and San Francisco during that period of time, then this is a must read for you. I highly recommend it.

Excellent tale of that era. Raw look at what it must have been to be in and around the music industry during the 60s, 70s and 80s. I would definitely recommend this .
