Kill the Music: The chronicle of a college radio idealist’s rock and roll rebellion in an era of intrusive morality and censorship
This poignant account explores the experiences of a college radio deejay at WUSC-FM, and the owner of the ill-fated and controversial 4808 Club, in Uptown Charlotte, NC. Through entertaining conversations with legendary rock stars, tales of sexual liaisons, and the ins and outs of concert promotion, KILL THE MUSIC is a no-holds-barred comedic, skewed, enlightening, and sometimes sad look into a past not so long ago, and how oddly our society is connected. The book also touches on the growth of music in North and South Carolina, censorship issues, and the antiquated laws and Puritanism that suffer the “New South”. “Michael”, the son of a flamboyant attorney, traverses through the politics of music, and the small town mentality of a “World Class City.” Commentaries on these issues throughout but never short on levity, KILL THE MUSIC is an insightful must-have for those who love seedy tales of nightclubs, rivalries, and these music genres, during the Reagan and Bush eras.
