A true cult band... 5 novembre 2007
Par Hollywood Gourmand - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This amazingly detailed biography of the original Texas psychedelic band and its legendary singer goes a long way toward setting the record "straight" on the subject of Roky Erickson and the Thirteenth Floor Elevators. The sincerity and innocence of their original concept as an LSD-driven cult of personality that was trying to "elevate" their audiences' consciousness with rock & roll music--and their tragic failure and ultimate destruction--is THE great untold story in Texas music history. There are heroes and villains here--and they are not always the ones that you might expect if you know this band's mythology. The author's research thankfully approached primary sources, and there is information here that is more reliable and detailed than has ever been collected before. The book is also blessed with a wealth of unseen photographs that are worth the price of admission in and of themselves. The only negative present here is the need for more diligent editing and fact checking in regard to Austin and Texas geography, place names and history. Austinites will cringe when the late John Henry Faulk is referred to as "John Henry Faulkner" and the J.R. Reed Music Co. is placed on "South Congress" instead of at Congress Avenue & 8th Street. Minor quibbles for sure, but the biggest gaffe is, unfortunately, on page one: The Sex Pistols DID NOT play a gig in Kerrville, TX in 1978. That show was at Randy's Rodeo in San Antonio. I know, because I was there (and still have my ticket stub to prove it).

Drummond's Book - The Authoritative Source 21 octobre 2007
Par Gregory Forest - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Paul Drummond has done his homework and research. He spent years here in Texas and looked under every rock (I know - he found me under one.) He interviewed everyone out to third cousins. I was at first skeptical that Paul could get the job done - he's hardly a Texas cow-hippie or a denizen of the 70's drug culture. Many had gone before him - attempting to write "the story" of the Elevators - and they all came up short.

Drummond's persistence and objectivity was essential to getting this portrait of one of rock music's great innovative bands. The story of the 13th Floor Elevators is not always a pretty one but Drummond pulls no punches. I think this book put the Elevators and Roky in the context of the times and revealed them as people and not just heroic and tragic rock icons.

I am convinced that this will be the best book ever written on the subject and have to give massive thanks and praise to Drummond and his publisher for this heartfelt and scholarly work.

Slip Into This House 17 février 2008
Par Mark Lansing - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Paul Drummond's book finally delivers all the details behind the story of one of America's finest and most idiosyncratic rock bands, the 13th Floor Elevators. While the history of the Elevators has long been shrouded in mystery, Drummond's heroic research has given us interviews with nearly every major player in their story, as well as a rich supporting cast of friends, cronies and enemies. If Drummond almost tells us more than we might ever want to know about the Elevators, the musicians who comprised the group and the philosophies that drove idea man Tommy Hall, the book is a welcome corrective to the sketchy biographies of the group that have appeared in the past. A truly mind-boggling study of the intersection between rock and roll, expanded consciousness and the cultural tumult of the Sixties, this is essential reading for anyone with an interest in the 13th Floor Elevators or the times that produced them.

up and down THAT elevator...at last! 23 décembre 2007
Par C. Cardenas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I'm really grateful to Paul Drummond for this book, at last a book on the wonderful and truly psychedelic ELEVATORS.
I highly recommended it but i have to share some of the other comments from other reviewers...some better editing would have made it just great (too many times we read "affects" when it should have been "effects"!)
Personally I feel a bit more care should have been taken with some details...on page 135 The Yardbirds appear with "Shapes of Things to come" supposedly with Gregorian-chant backing vocals...I know, I know it's a book on the Elevators but I'm sure most people reading it will notice the double mistake...if not ask Roky!
In any case DO NOT MISS THIS BOOK under any circumstances!!!

The genius of this band has alway amazed me. The lyrics of Slip Inside This House is poetry in motion. I've been looking for this book for two decades. I alway wanted to know more about this band that I came across in my youth and wondered why I was attracted to the ideas of Gurdjieff.
This is a story of the search for enlightenment and not fame. Their music has been an inspirtation for many in finding meaning out of life. But as Alan Watts said "taking psychedlics was a sign pointing in definate direction but taking it again was like jumping on the sign."
