Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Leslie Conway "Lester" Bangs (December 13, 1948 - April 30, 1982) was an American music journalist, author and musician. He wrote for Creem and Rolling Stone magazines, and has been called one of the "most influential" voices in rock criticism. Bangs was born in Escondido, California, USA. His mother was a devout Jehovah's Witness. His father died in a fire when Bangs was young. In 1969, Bangs began writing freelance after reading an ad in Rolling Stone soliciting readers' reviews. His first piece was a negative review of the MC5 album Kick Out The Jams, which he sent to Rolling Stone with a note detailing that should the magazine decide not to publish the review, then they would have to contact Lester and tell him why. Instead, they published it.show more
