Al Aronowitz, Rolling Stone, 27 February 1975

This sorrowful piece was sent to us, by third-class mail, by Al Aronowitz, pop columnist for the New York Post until the paper dropped him "because they said I wasn’t writing about pop anymore." His previous pieces for Rolling Stone include profiles of The Band and Merle Haggard.
