In 1979, rock and roll was in revolution. While FM radio covered the nation with a nonstop format of Fleetwood Mac, Foreigner, Kansas, Styx, Led Zeppelin, and more Fleetwood Mac, it was a different story in rock clubs all over America. In dingy, sweaty venues from LA to New York, punk rock and new wave bands were retelling the rock and roll story. In New Jersey, from Ramsey to Carteret, from Hoboken and Fort Lee, to the little town of Bergenfield, it was a time of great clubs and even greater music.
This book chronicles those times and gives a first-hand account of a club owner's remembrances of that famed era.
Included are exclusive interviews with band members, rock fans, and former employees that witnessed this special time in rock history in a way that can only be told through their words. Meanwhile, the author's commentary places the reader into a rock club at the center stage of the revolution.
