Lillian Roxon : mother of rock by Robert Milliken( Book )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Audacious, independent, and fiercely intelligent, Lillian Roxon cut her teeth as a reporter in the lively world of 1950s tabloid journalism. Her rapid success soon saw her interviewing stars like Rock Hudson and Richard Burton. She moved to New York City in the 1960s, just in time for a cultural revolution that celebrated youth, fresh attitudes to sexual freedom, women's liberation - and, of course, rock 'n' roll." "In New York, Lillian was the universally acknowledged star of Max's Kansas City, one of the greatest nightspots ever. It was the club where Jimi Hendrix, Mick Jagger, Janis Joplin, and other stars-in-waiting came to hang out. Linda McCartney confided in Lillian about her first date with Paul, and Germaine Greer knocked on her door for a place to stay. The 1969 publication of Lillian's Rock Encyclopedia - excerpted in this volume - confirmed her status. It was the first book of its kind and established her as one of America's leading chroniclers of rock culture. Here was the only critic to give Lester Bangs a run for his money."--BOOK JACKET
Mother of rock : the Lillian Roxon story by Robert Milliken( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the pubs of the Sydney Push to New York's legendary nightclubs, Lillian Roxon set the pace for an era that changed the world. Audacious, independent and fiercely intelligent, by eighteen she was cutting her writing teeth in the colourful world of Sydney tabloid journalism. She moved to New York in 1959, just in time for a cultural revolution that celebrated youth, sexual freedom, women's liberation and rock and roll. Embracing the new scene with gusto, she became the centre of a circle that included Andy Warhol, Lou Reed, Jim Morrison and David Bowie. Linda Eastman confided in her about her first date with Paul McCartney, and Germaine Greer dedicated The Female Eunuch to her. Her Rock Encycylopedia, published in 1969, was the first book of its kind and established Roxon as a leading critic and chronicler of rock culture. When she died suddenly in 1973, she left behind a body of work full of the energy, irreverence and idealism of her times. Drawing on Roxon's personal papers and extensive interviews with those who knew her, Mother of Rock is a riveting portrait of an Australian trailblazer. It also contains a generous selection of Roxon's own writing, including extracts from her Rock Encyclopedia, which revolutionised the way rock music was perceived."--Publisher's information
