The Dark Stuff Summary


The Dark Stuff: Selected Writings on Rock Music, 1972-93 by Nick Kent

This collection of Nick Kent's writing over the last 20 years forms a companion volume to Charles Shaar Murray's "Shots From the Hip". Nick Kent was always the star of British rock journalism, wasted and addictive but capable of writing like a dark angel. He was always attracted to the darker side of rock music and that is the theme which runs through this book. Some call it "The Dispatches of Rock 'n' roll". Others, Nick Kent's big book of losers - Lou Reed, Sid Vicious, Iggy Pop, Syd Barrett, Brian Wilson, Brian Jones and others.
