Description: Few journalists have staked a territory as passionately as Mikal Gilmore in his twenty-year career writing about rock and roll. Night Beat gathers, for the first time, Gilmore's cultural criticism, interviews, reviews, and assorted musings. Beginning with Elvis and the birth of rock and roll, Gilmore traces the seismic changes in America as rock evolved from fad to phenomenon. He hears in the lyrics of Bob Dylan and Jim Morrison the voices of unrest and fervor, and follows the rise and fall of punk in brilliant essays on Lou Reed, The Sex Pistols, and The Clash. And like no one else, Mikal Gilmore translates the lone voices: Al Green, Marianne Faithfull, Sinead O'Connor, Frank Sinatra.

The essays in Night Beat chart not only the progress of an unforgettable career, but four decades of unforgettable music, from Presley to punk, from Miles Davis to Tupac Shakur. Gilmore shows readers late twentieth-century life through the inimitable lens of rock and roll, proving his stature as one of the most committed chroniclers of American music, and its powerful expressions of love, soul, politics, and redemption.
