Publisher's Summary

From the man who wrote the songs that outsold the Beatles and the Rolling Stones in 1967, comes the story of the first decades of his life in Hollywood and New York. Immerse yourself in Grammy, Golden Globe, and Academy Award nominated songwriter Bobby Hart's world as he shares the story behind his success; from humble beginnings comes a musical goliath. Psychedelic Bubble Gum is an exclusive glimpse into Hart's personal journey as he moves on the fast track to fame. This vivid narrative follows Hart's gradual rise in the music industry as half of the duo Boyce and Hart, as he and his friend and partner Tommy Boyce wrote the songs that launched the Monkees to stardom, and eventually reaching over 100 million in sales. Along the way is all the heartbreak and drama that accompanies fame and fortune - an uprooted life, conflicted morals, and the sacrifice of his wholesome high school sweetheart Becky. With unbending sincerity, Hart details a life of extravagance, betrayal, loss, disillusionment, and an unstoppable personal struggle to find spiritual balance, peace, and love. Psychedelic Bubble Gum is a roller coaster ride through the 1960s and 1970s during America's whirlwind era of free speech, mysticism, and psychedelic pop culture - and, of course, rock and roll. Packed with intimate behind-the-scenes encounters with pop star royalty, Psychedelic Bubble Gum is tempered by humor, honesty, and a singular understanding of the industry.

It was ok

Expected more about the Monkees. The book wasn't as in depth as I was hoping but still enjoyed overall. If not a fan of sixties rock and roll the book might be boring.
