Great Jones Street, Don DeLillo (1973) 

407 2Weird wild rock n roll New York City novel. May well survive the test of time and in 50 years be THE period piece for post Woodstock conversion of rock-art-outrage-dissent into BIG BIG business-hype-rip off. Ecstasy- authenticity-acid test to frantic-poison-addiction. Don Delillo comes out, as we may have presumed as a Dylan guy. Phantasmagoric surreal character movement and dialogue comes out of the same place in creation as Bob Dylan’s 115th Dream; Motor-psycho Nightmare; Subterranean HSBlues; Tombstone Blues; Desolation Row … also the one with Einstein disguised as Robin Hood. Loved it!
