Critical Praise for How the Left Lost Teen Spirit by Danny Goldberg:

"Danny Goldberg’s memoir contains the powerful reflections of the most progressive activist in the recording industry. His candor, vision, and sense of humor are infectious." —Cornel West

"Years from now, if the Democrats have long faded from American memory, anthropologists and historians will ask, Didn’t any of them read this book by Danny Goldberg?" —Michael Moore

The 1967 "Summer of Love”—set against the backdrop of increased racial tension, the Vietnam War, a burgeoning drug culture, and an exploding new music scene—propelled the counterculture philosophy of peace and love into the mainstream. Although this sudden surge of unironic idealism disappeared as quickly as it had appeared, the cultural effects of 1967 can still be felt today. A half century later, Goldberg reexamines this pivotal year, stripping away the reductive clichés that obscure the radical idealism of countercultural movements, and explores how and why the legacy of 1967 lives on today through movements like Black Lives Matter, Occupy Wall Street, and the political revolution espoused by the like of Bernie Sanders.

Danny Goldberg is the author of How the Left Lost Teen Spirit and Bumping Into Geniuses: My Life Inside the Rock and Roll Business. Since 2007 he has been president of Gold Village Entertainment, whose clients include Steve Earle and Against Me!. Previously, Goldberg was president of Gold Mountain Entertainment (whose clients included Nirvana, Bonnie Raitt, and the Allman Brothers), CEO of Air America Radio, chairman of Warner Bros. Records, president of Atlantic Records, and vice president of Led Zeppelin’s Swan Song Records.
