Publisher's description: Robert Fraser owned a gallery in London at the height of the Swingin' Sixties, and -- as no less than Paul McCartney has said -- he all but personified the period for his vast network of friends, fans, and hangers-on. This book tells Fraser's story through the voices of those friends, including McCartney, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Kenneth Anger, Malcolm McLaren, Bridget Riley, and many more. An unprecedented close-up of the man who introduced the world to Andy Warhol, Peter Blake, Claes Oldenburg, Keith Haring, and Jean-Michael Basquiat, Groovy Bob brings the 60's London art scene, its wild parties and creative fervor, unforgettably to life. This new edition features a new afterword by the author and new color plates, including works from the 2015 Pace London exhibition "A Strong Sweet Smell of Incense: A Portrait of Robert Fraser" (see Worldwide 36666).
