Drawing on rock 'n' roll, folk, and jazz, rock music in the 1960s beat new paths in the art of sound. In Sixties Rock, Michael Hicks provides a unique vision of two of those paths: garage rock and psychedelic music.

Delving into everything from harmony to hardware, Hicks shows how and why these musics work. He explores how voices and guitars got "distorted", how riffs and rhythms got "encoded", how drugs reshaped the design and the endings of the music, and how two rock anthems -- "Hey Joe" and "Light My Fire" -- evolved. With twists and turns of insight, Hicks illuminates the art of rock in the 1960s.
