Description

‘Sometimes fate deals up a wild card. There’s a lot to be said for one of these wild cards and from what I’ve learned over the fifty or so years of our friendship, Chris is a card from the unexpected deck’ –¬†from the foreword by Debbie Harry

Musician, photographer, storyteller, and longtime partner to Debbie Harry, Chris Stein defined the sound of an era, catapulting the icon band Blondie to #1 and selling over 20 million copies of Parallel Lines.

In this no-holds-barred autobiography, Stein reveals himself-this time not in songwriting or photography, which he’s previously been known for, but in words. From a Brooklyn boyhood, a move across the river to the gritty and fecund East Village in the late 1970s allowed Stein to tap the explosive creativity that defined the era in the city. It was a time when David Bowie and the Ramones were also making music, when Andy Warhol was still alive and promoting Jean-Michel Basquiat’s work, when cool was defined not by where you came from but by what you could contribute to culture.

UNDER A ROCK is a plunge into that vanished time period, and into the moments that turned the fresh sound and new look of punk and new wave into a giant artistic and commercial sensation. Stein takes us there in this revelatory, propulsive, distinctive memoir.
