Takes readers on a mesmerizing behind-the-scenes psychedelic journey through San Francisco’s cultural and musical revolution

Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart once said, “There was a community in need of music, and music in need of a community.” That community was San Francisco in the ‘60s and ‘70s, and that music was rock ’n’ roll. Presenting every baby boomer’s musical dream, Andrew Bernstein’s “California Slim” takes readers on a mesmerizing behind-the-scenes psychedelic journey through San Francisco’s cultural and musical revolution.

“California Slim: The Music, the Magic, and the Madness” (published by Xlibris) provides a real taste of rock ’n’ roll history, from the moment Bernstein was a 14-year-old kid taking banjo lessons from an unknown music teacher named Jerry Garcia, to the red carpet premier of Willie Nelson’s first movie, “Honeysuckle Rose.”
