Richard Loren lived a singular life. During his stints as an agent and manager in the music business, he worked with Jefferson Airplane, The Doors, The Chambers Brothers, Grateful Dead, and many other iconic bands from the Summer of Love. Loren not only worked with these legendary artists; he was part of the inner circle. He was backstage, hanging out with the musicians in their private homes, and sharing drugs.

It is a colorful and delightful book divided into four parts. Part One details the author's life in New York City as an agent and working with Jefferson Airplane, the Doors, and the Chambers Brothers. Part Two is devoted to his time spent in Stinson Beach, California, with David Grisman, the Rowan Brothers, the Garcia-Saunders Band, and Old and in the Way [another band with Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia].

Part Three is given over the Grateful Dead. Here, he talks about the band's spectacular show in front of the pyramids of Egypt, their appearance on Saturday Night Live, and much more. Part Four continues with his time spent with the Dead and his ultimate departure.

It is a fascinating book and a rare look behind the curtains. For any Deadheads out there, this is a must-read. If you're not a Deadhead, you will be after turning the pages in this one.
