The Lovin' Spoonful: End Of The Rainbow

Dave DiMartino, MOJO, July 2002

The Lovin' Spoonful epitomised the euphoric, carefree spirit of the Summer of Love. But then came unwated adoration as The American Beatles., their very own Yoko and a drug bust that turned them into hippy pariahs. Dave DiMartino unfolds the story of the band who saw the flower-power dream turn sour.
