About the book:

Lillian Roxon is the undisputed godmother of rock journalism. Audacious, independent and fiercely intelligent, she cut her teeth as a reporter in the lively world of 1950's Sydney tabloid journalism. She moved to New York in the 1960s just in time for the cultural revolution celebrating fresh attitudes to sexual freedom, women's liberation - and, of course, rock music.

Linda McCartney confided in her about her first date with Paul, and Germaine Greer knocked on her door for a place to stay. Lillian's Rock Encyclopedia was the first book of its kind and established her as one of America's leading chroniclers of rock culture.
