About the Author

Danny Goldberg is a longtime music business who began his career as a journalist. The New York Times called his memoir Bumping into Geniuses: My Life Inside the Rock and Roll Business "an engaging, droll and...largely demystifying look at the evolution of the rock trade from Woodstock to grunge." Since 2007 Goldberg has been president of Gold Village Entertainment. He is also the author of Dispatches from the Culture Wars: How the Left Lost Teen Spirit.

Reviews

Danny Goldberg's In Search of the Lost Chord: 1967 and the Hippie Idea resonates with today's activist readers . . . Goldberg uses the afterword to bounce these ideas off our current political landscape and it's quite revelatory. That same chord that was ringing in the ears of some of those hippies of 1967 is now ringing in the ears of those with their boots on the ground in their own respective resistance movements today.


-- "PopMatters"
A legendary steward of the hip musical world . . . Goldberg plunges into a thorough, panoramic account of the culture, politics, medias, music and mores of the year to demolish the idea that it was trivial . . . Goldberg's deep purchase on his subject and his storytelling ease make it fresh.
--Sheila Weller "New York Times Book Review"
Goldberg brings a personal passion that itself illustrates the lasting resonance of the hippie era.
-- "Publishers Weekly"
[Goldberg's] analysis of what it meant to be a hippie in 1967--sans cartoon clichés--recounts the pursuit of wisdom and joy, as well as a crazy quilt of counterculture cool. And despite the demarcation insisted on by some, he shows that spirituality, activism and business are not incompatible.
-- "High Times"
Danny Goldberg is a relentless tracker of people. However elusive this Lost Chord may be, Danny G. searches it out and nails it to the tree flesh. Eternity now! 1967 forever!
