MORE THAN A
BIOGRAPHY, or a tell-all, You Keep Me
Hangin' On is
a cultural and social history, music criticsim, and the story of
generational change. Enriched by first-hand perspective of Mark Stein
of Vanilla Fudge, the reader will be transported into scenes and
conversations with some of Rock's most celebrated innovators.
"YOU KEEP ME
HANGIN' ON by Mark Stein with Larry Schweikart is the story of the
legendary singer/keyboardist for the influential, innovative Vanilla
Fudge, whose showmanship alone made them one of the great late-'60s
rock acts. By writing a third-person biography (and not a
first-person autobiography) the authors are able explore not just
Mark's personal story, charting his career as both a rock star and a
working musician, but to examine the history of rock 'n' roll from an
insider's perspective. Within the context of Mark's life and career,
the reader receives a keen-eyed account of the changing music scene
spanning many decades, from its superstar heroes and the crooks who
stole from them, from Woodstock to Glam Rock and everything before
and after. This is a unique and compelling read, frank and fascinating."

starts here. There was nothing, even in 1967, like the 10-ton shock
of this Long Island quartet's cover of the Supreme's You Keep Me
Hanging On, with the lava-flow sustain of Mark Stein's Hammond organ
and Carmine Appice's rapid-cannon-fire drum fills. That hit treatment
became, as these four CDs show, a blueprint for almost everything the
group played. But the Fudge combined their flashy melodrama with
great taste in songwriters (the Zombies, Donovan, Lee Hazlewood) and
bar-band brawn, the last in full effect on the two discs of live
recordings from 1969 at the Fillmore west." - D.F. / Rolling Stone
