Acid Flashback: Memoirs

Release date : 04/11/2021
For three years, Philippe Manoeuvre has been asked, “When are you going to write the rest of your memoirs?”
Here they are!

In this new book, the former editor of noteworthy music magazine Rock & Folk who can tell the legendary story of rock music like no one else to the point of becoming a legend himself continues the story of his pedal-to-the-metal life. What does he include in this flashback? Everything...

In this new book, the former editor of noteworthy music magazine Rock & Folk who can tell the legendary story of rock music like no one else to the point of becoming a legend himself continues the story of his pedal-to-the-metal life. What does he include in this flashback? Everything he didn’t put in the first volume of his memoirs.
In his inimitable, comical style, “Philman” takes us along on his rock trips to meet giants like David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Captain Beefheart, Lemmy from Motörhead and more. He dives into his trip to the USSR with the Scorpions in 1988 with Russian army tanks behind the stage curtain; LSD, the star product of the sixties, and his notes he took in Basel while taking acid on the banks of the Rhine; and he describes the underbelly of the Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam, before continuing with several more personal chapters whose contents are top secret. Acid Flashback is like a long guitar, psychedelic solo, with the Acid referring to the speed, drugs, weed, LSD, and coke, that in those years were at the heart of the rock whirlwind. Everything goes, with no exceptions. His idols took them and he did, too. This time, Philman spares nothing of his highs (and lows), finally revisiting an epic time in history, the good ol’ times of rock ‘n roll.
