The Americanization of Rock
Bill Graham, Cue, 10 October 1970
IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE that rock has been on this planet for two decades. My own involvement with the music, as a producer in these past few years, has seemed like a lifetime. I have seen the music grow in strength, originality, and magic. But in any popular art form strength can become posture, originality can become pretense, and magic can become ritual.
