Overview

Waiting for the Man: The Story of Drugs and Popular Music by Harry Shapiro

From marijuana and jazz, through acid-rock and speed-fuelled punk, from crack-driven rap to Ecstasy and the dance generation, this is the definitive history of drugs and pop. It also features in-depth portraits of music's most famous drug addicts: from Charlie Parker to Sid Vicious to Jim Morrison to Kurt Cobain. Chosen by the BBC as one of the Top Twenty Music Books of All Time.

"Wise and witty."-The Guardian
