Inside the Songs of the Sixties

I just finished reading Brian Forsythe's book Inside the Songs of the Sixties.  Through thorough research and interviews,  Brian Forsythe has mastered  the art of removing the fallacies, myths, and contradictions concerning the artists and music of the 60s. I found it to be a book not easy to put down once you began reading. It is loaded with facts and trivia concerning the artists and their music,  some  which you  have read before but so many more that you have not.  This book is a great reference for connoisseurs of the 60s and its music. It is now a definite reference for The 60s Official Site.

After reading Inside the Songs of the Sixties  I discovered that I didn't know as much as I thought I did about 60s music.  If there is any downside to the book, which is very minor, would be a need for a quick reference index broken down by artists or songs but I definitely highly recommend you grab this one.

    I love your site. I'm always looking for sites that have material about the 60s. Stuck in the past I guess, but I do feel it was a special time. I actually wrote a novel about that era, a comedy about a dysfunctional family. it is called Ride the Snake and is available on Amazon. I wonder if you might be willing to check it out and maybe offer a few comments on your site and/or on Amazon. I feel pretty sure you will enjoy it.

    Do you remember a 60's comedy about a kid that wanted to go to college but did not have the money? I believe he ran a snack truck on campus. He earned extra cash by going to class and taking notes for enrolled students. I loved that show when I was about eleven. Ring any bells?

    I think the show was called "Hank."
