So for once in my life, here's a posting without too many words, showing the pop stars of the 60s as they are today, or even older. Below the five superstar pictures are books about them.
To be honest, I have read only three books, the rather dated one about the Ultimate Cliff by Peter Lewry and Nigel Goodall (1996), the Rolling Stones by Steve Appleford (2010) and the Tom Jones biography by Sean Smith (2015).
So to my good friend who prefers pictures, here's to you, sir.
I am currently into a recently written, Paul Simon The Life (2018), truly a mastermind and intellectual who composed lyrics (Sound of Silence, Bridge Over... The Boxer) that are so unique and truthful of his own life. He'll be 78 this October. Robert Hilburn, a pure writer, depicts him honestly and without fictitious asides.
"Somewhere in your early thirties, you start noticing that the garment of your youth is becoming frayed. What do you do then? It's a crucial time. Some people make it through Dylan, McCartney, the Stones. But a lot of others don't Ch 13, p 212)."
