“Season of the Witch: How the Occult Saved Rock and Roll Being” Published in Paperback

Author Peter Bebergal has announced the publication of  the paperback edition of Season of the Witch: How the Occult Saved Rock and Roll on Oct. 13.

According to Peter: “Season of the Witch is cultural history of the influence of the occult and mysticism on the trajectory and history of pop music. I trace the occult from the roots of African religion on the blues to the mysticism of the sixties to Black Sabbath’s dark morality to Bowie’s cocaine fueled magic experiments, to Madonna’s ritual spectacles and rumors of Jay Z’s secret society membership. The book contains all the wonderful weird aspects of pop culture: Dungeons & Dragons, comic books, monster movies, and Christian fundamentalists, all tied together in a history of rock and roll that looks at how the occult and mysticism shaped the music, the fans, the industry, and the bands.
