Summary

Summary

Authorised biography of the British cult folk hero behind the chart hit 'Year of the Cat' who enjoyed Top Ten success in the US and who was a pivotal player in the sixties folk scene that became a springboard for Simon & Garfunkel, Fairport Convention, Sandy Denny, John Martyn and many more. Packed with anecdotes, insider information on the folk scene, and on the early years of Paul Simon - with whom Stewart shared a flat - this is a wry account of the trials and tribulations of a major folk star right from the early sixties to the present day. Illustrated with b/w photographs.
