Thursday, August 21, Greil will be appearing at Pegasus Books on Solano, in Berkeley, as part of the First Person Singular series.
“To celebrate [The History of Rock ‘n’ Roll in Ten Songs], a work that will stand with the author’s Mystery Train and Lipstick Traces, we present Greil Marcus in conversation with Cyril Jordan, guitarist and songwriter for The Flamin’ Groovies. The band’s “Shake Some Action” kicks off the book, and Cyril is bringing his guitar. This history in ten songs… might just go to eleven.”
