Dick Stewart has completed his new book “ROCK & ROLL DURING A TIME OF INNOCENCE: THEN ALONG CAME THE PILL, THE DRAFT, THE COMPUTER AND THE BRITISH INVASION”: a gripping and potent first-hand account of the birth of rock-and-roll and the transformation of music and culture.
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Dick Stewart’s exciting tale provides the reader with a historical account of the early rock-and-roll movement in music and the lead up to it. Stewart’s story provides readers with perspective and insight into the last era of innocent freedom.
Richard Stewart is one of those large numbers of fanatical early ’60s rock-and-roll guitarists, who never received national attention and all its glory but, instead, came darn close regardless of the frequent and, on occasion, precarious roadblocks that he encountered, especially during the innocent years of early rock and roll. He endured excessive corporal punishment at school and at home; he explored and mapped privately owned lots in which he and his neighborhood, preteen gang members built forts; he was a Pachuco in an Hispanic gang while in high school; he witnessed despicable bigotry toward Native Americans, Mexican Americans, and African Americans; he fought forest fires in the Pacific Northwest, one of which nearly took his life; he suffered extreme hazing at the hands of his Kappa Sigma active brothers at the University of New Mexico; and the arrival of the Beatles in America dashed his dream of having a national, rock-in-roll guitar instrumental hit.
Stewart’s experiences from the moment the Second World War ended in July of 1945 to the beginning of the psychedelic rock period in 1967 are just too powerful, suspenseful, historic, excruciating, humorous, scary, and on occasion, downright life threatening that needs to be told in detail.
