No writer on rock n roll ever lived harder or wrote better--more passionately, more compellingly, more penetratingly.

He lived the rock n roll lifestyle, guzzling booze and Romilar like water, matching its energy in prose that erupted from the pages of Rolling Stone, Creem, and The Village Voice. Bangs agitated in the seventies for sounds that were harsher, louder, more electric, and more alive, in the course of which he charted and defined the aesthetics of heavy metal and punk. He was treated as a peer by such brash visionaries as Lou Reed, Patti Smith, Richard Hell, Captain Beefheart, The Clash, Debbie Harry, and other luminaries.Let It Blurt is a scrupulously researched account of Lester Bangss fascinating (if often tawdry and unappetizing) life story, as well as a window on rock criticism and rock culture in their most turbulent and creative years.

It includes a never-before-published piece by Bangs, the hilarious How to Be a Rock Critic, in which he reveals the secrets of his dubious, freeloading trade.
