When the low-budget biker movie Easy Rider shocked Hollywood with its success in 1969, a new Hollywood era was born. This was an age when talented filmmakers such as Scorcese, Coppola, and Spielberg, along with a new breed of actors, including DeNiro, Pacino, and Nicholson, became the powerful figures who would make such modern classics as The Godfather, Chinatown, Taxi Driver, and Jaws.

Easy Rider, Raging Bulls follows the wild ride that was Hollywood in the 70s - an unabashed celebration of sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll (both on screen and off) and a climate where innovation and experimentation reigned supreme. Download and start listening now!

    " Just so much fun to read, even if I didn't believe it was quite as sordid as he makes it out to be. Great, gossipy stories about all the filmmakers of the 70s, with Hal Ashby as the hero, of sorts. "

    " Accused of fudging the facts and exaggerating on things - Biskind writes a book that I inhale whenever I sit down to read it. I believe it's been about 4 times as of now. "

    " A fantastic primer on what many film afficianado's consider to be the best decade in cinema. Extremely compelling and entertaining. "
