sharply written narrative illuminates the centrality of the occult
imagination at the heart of rock and roll."-- Library Journal, starred
“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
“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
“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
“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
“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
