By Cam Cobb, with an introduction by Robin Spence
Skip Spence was a soldier, a rockstar, an innovator, an addict, a cult phenomenon and a ward of the state. The characters in his story include Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Santana, B.B. King, Neil Young and many more.
Spence’s story is the story of the 60s, and one that has never been told in full. It’s the story of San Francisco, the biggest bands in America, Columbia Records, The Hells Angels and rock ’n’ roll mayhem.
Weighted Down is a first-hand narrative of Skip Spence, told by his friends, bandmates and family, and includes a trove of never-before-seen photographs.
Cam Cobb is a university professor and rock journalist. Cobb’s writing has appeared in such magazines as Record Collector, Shindig!, and Ugly Things.
