Lennon, Harrison chats included in new book of Smith Tapes interviews
A new book of printed interviews by DJ Howard Smith that includes chats with both George Harrison and John Lennon and Yoko Ono comes out next week from Princeton Architectural Press. "The Smith Tapes: Lost Interviews with Rock Stars & Icons 1969 - 1972", edited by Ezra Bookstein, also includes interviews with Eric Clapton, Jane Fonda, Jerry Garcia, Abbie Hoffman, Mick Jagger, Janis Joplin, Carole King, Jim Morrison, Lou Reed, Frank Zappa and many more icons of the '60s, a total of 61 all together. Very interesting, and very nicely priced, too. ($14 in paperback, $25 in Amazon's Kindle.) (Thanks to Mike R.)
