Death of a Rebel A Biography of Phil Ochs
Originally published in 1978, Death of a Rebel remained in print in America for nearly twenty years, and is periodically reissued. It has also been published in England, and in France. This was my first book, written in the wake of Phil's suicide, and remains my favorite. It received generally wonderful reviews, one which I will excerpt for you here, from Britain's great music magazine,Q, whose critic John Bauldie gave it the magazine's first five-star book review: "At once intimate and informative...Eliot is to be commended for having given Phil Ochs something of the memorial he deserves."
