By Nick Kent

Chronicling Nick Kent’s up-close , own, usually harrowing adventures with the Rolling Stones, Lester Bangs, David Bowie, Led Zeppelin, the intercourse Pistols, and Chrissie Hynde, between ratings of others, Apathy for the satan is a picaresque memoir that bears witness to the gorgeous and the damned of this turbulent decade.

As a faculty dropout slightly out of his teenagers, Kent’s first 5 interviews have been with the MC5, Captain Beefheart, the thankful lifeless, the Stooges, and Lou Reed. yet after the buzz and freedom of these early years, his tale might come to reflect that of the last decade itself, as he slipped into extra and ever-worsening heroin use.

Opera buffa: A general designation for Italian operas of the middle and late 18th century that do not come under the heading of opera seria. These productions were melodically simpler and more “popular” than Baroque opera seria. Opéra comique: A popular French operatic genre that developed concurrently with grand opera in the early 19th century but employed spoken dialogue rather than recitative and featured somewhat less pretentious productions than grand opera. Opera seria: “Serious” opera of the Baroque era—elaborate and grandiose productions typically based on subjects from ancient history and/or mythology.

The aria di mezzo caratere is a compromise between the aria cantabile and the aria di bravura. 4. The aria parlante (patter aria) demonstrates the singer’s agility. 5. The aria di bravura (or aria d’agilità) is highly florid and designed to show off the singer’s agility and extraordinary vocal compass.
