Danny Fields: A Man who Changed the Face of Rock N Roll from Greenwich Village
New York City is a city of neighborhoods, and Greenwich Village is no exception. Its cobblestone streets, historic brownstones, and lively restaurants make it one of the most frequented neighborhoods. It's also a place for people to live and work who want to stay in the heart of Manhattan without having to face the costly living costs. One unique thing about this neighborhood is that it's very diverse regarding race, culture, and geography.
Greenwich Village is a lively, urban neighborhood with many cafes, bars and restaurants, jazz clubs, Broadway productions, and historical brownstones. It can be a great place to explore as a tourist. Writers and poets, artists and radicals, runaway socialites, and others seeking freedom from conventional lifestyles have long flocked to this spot, lit most famously by the counterculture figures of the 1950s and '60s: Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, James Baldwin, Bob Dylan, and others. Take this walking tour with me, Buzz, and Danny Fields to better orient yourself in the Village and to hear more about his music career.
Danny Fields is an American music manager, publicist, journalist, and author. As a music industry executive from the 1960s to the 1980s, he was one of the most influential figures in punk rock history.
