The unlikely entertainment career of an unabashed leftist: a serial memoir

My name is Frank Fried. In the middle years of the 20th century I produced concerts and tours for some of the most influential and profitable musical acts of the day, such as Pete Seeger, the Beatles, Frank Zappa, Miriam Makeba, the Chad Mitchell Trio, Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones.

What a lot of people didn’t know (not that it was such a big secret) is that this pop music impresario had started out as a socialist revolutionary — a heritage I tried to honor throughout a tumultuous show business career.

On this web site, I do my best to tell you what happened.

Ruth draws some parallels between the life and genius of Michael Jackson and Mozart.
