Charles Perry was among the mainstays of Rolling Rock in its start. A marijuana seller that got once shared a residence with LSD producer Owsley Stanley, Perry began proofreading for the mag, he was after that struggling financially, free of charge in 1968. This quickly converted into a paid work as duplicate editor. He’d ultimately rise to associate editor, but didn’t follow the personnel when the mag shifted its offices from SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA to NY in the middle ’70s. In 1975, Perry started researching his background of the Haight-Ashbury ’60s psychedelic picture, released (first by Rolling Rock Press) in 1984 as The Haight-Ashbury: A BRIEF HISTORY. Although this is only partially specialized in rock and roll music, the discussion between lifestyle and music was vitally important to ’60s SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA rock and roll, and therefore this comprehensive and entertaining reserve will probably be worth reading by both rock and roll enthusiasts and general visitors. After leaving Moving Rock, Perry became a cafe critic for the LA Times.
