內容簡介

神秘的想像力是搖滾樂最重要的基石,本書做了深入探究。──Publishers Weekly
鮮明文字,扣人心弦,照亮了搖滾樂的靈魂。──Library Journal

透過本書,對搖滾樂重新認識與解讀,原來,哦,這歌詞是這意義。

無論你是不是搖滾迷,都無法在搖滾圈以外生活,因為,搖滾樂影響的不只是音樂圈,對於意識、文化、宗教,乃至政治,都有深遠的影響,只是你不知道。而甚麼是影響搖滾樂的幕後黑手?這些樂團從披頭士到黑色安息日,他們的靈魂又是受到甚麼啟發呢?齊柏林飛船的Stairway to Heaven,吹笛手與五月皇后又是從何而來呢?
 
這本書提供這些偉大搖滾樂手是如何被神秘而古老的神話所啟發,神秘和超自然在搖滾產生和發展背後的扮演怎樣的關鍵因素,而創作出影響後世的音樂。作者Peter Bebergal不帶吹捧偶像的筆觸,客觀且深入研究,提供一個嶄新視角,讓樂迷或文化研究者,更能了解搖滾樂手所追尋的意義,與自我啟蒙的追求,本書充滿獨立藝術的表現與風貌,開啟世人對搖滾樂的誤解,提昇更深層次的認識與思考。

This epic cultural and historical odyssey unearths the full influence of occult traditions on rock and roll from the Beatles to Black Sabbath and shows how the marriage between mysticism and music changed our world.
From the hoodoo-inspired sounds of Elvis Presley to the Eastern odysseys of George Harrison, from the dark dalliances of Led Zeppelin to the Masonic imagery of today's hip-hop scene, the occult has long breathed life into rock and hip-hop and, indeed, esoteric and supernatural traditions are a key ingredient behind the emergence and development of rock and roll. 

With vivid storytelling and laser-sharp analysis, writer and critic Peter Bebergal illuminates this web of influences to produce the definitive work on how the occult shaped and saved popular music.

As Bebergal explains, occult and mystical ideals gave rock and roll its heart and purpose, making rock into more than just backbeat music, but into a cultural revolution of political, spiritual, sexual, and social liberation.

Praise

A fascinating thesis reflecting the time when everyone seemed to give rock and roll the status of, if not a religion, then certainly that of a spiritual belief system.  Peter Bebergal's Season of the Witch brought it all back. It's an absorbing read deserving an important place in rock literature.

Michael Moorcock

Peter Bebergal has written of his own searching, reconciling spiritual aspirations and personal background, in The Faith Between Us and Too Much To Dream. Both are on my bookshelves. Here, in Season Of The Witch, Peter presents an overview of one alternative influence at work on some of those intending to change the world.   The world they hoped to change was a dangerous mess. Now, half a century later...

Robert Fripp

  This book is a glorious headlong rush into the dark, full of the electricity of the arcane.  I loved it.

Warren Ellis, author of Gun Machine and Transmetropolitan

  From grimoires to topographic oceans, from heavy metal to hip-hop, Peter Bebergal tracks the Mysteries through half a century of popular music (and some underground noise as well). At once an overview of rock's mystic rebellions and a handy primer on modern esoterica, Season of the Witch suggests that we may need to round out the trinity of sex, drugs, and rock' n' roll with an additional deity: the occult, another primal portal to a re-enchanted world.

Erik Davis, author of Led Zeppelin IV and Nomad Codes: Adventures in Modern Esoterica

  Told with clear-eyed scholarship and delectable anecdotes, Peter Bebergal's mind-expanding occult history opened my third eye to Rock & Roll's awesome power over human behavior. Rock & Roll will never sound the same to me again, and I'm glad about it.

Mark Frauenfelder, founder of Boing Boing
