Excerpts

From the Introduction: "An appointment with John Sinclair in the city of Amsterdam By David Kerekes."I first encountered the name John Sinclair on the 1972 John Lennon and Yoko Ono/Plastic Ono Band album Sometime In New York City. In 2007, on the re-release of John Sinclair's book Guitar Army, our mutual UK distributors suggested a meeting with a view to perhaps an interview. The interview never really took place as fate had decided on a different dance. Instead, through laughter, the discovery of inner continents of common ground and a realisation that the man outshone the myth and no one thought of John or Yoko anymore, Mr Sinclair revealed his true credentials: a heavyweight jazz and blues expert, a man of whom Le Roi Jones said, "Hell, there's a buncha wooden negroes much whiter than John." I don't know too much about jazz and only a little more about the blues, but John travelled from his home in Amsterdam to visit the Headpress bunker on two more occasions after that, and by the end of it all he was the Headpress Senior Editor. In January 2008, I went with Caleb Selah, the fabled service engineer, to meet with John Sinclair on his own turf on the pretence of tying up loose ends for the book you now hold before you. It was a changing Amsterdam that greeted us. The Dutch were empire builders, early ones in Europe. They were seafaring explorers and gentle traders as opposed to the greedy syphilitic Spaniards and that good old nation of shopkeeping hooligans, the English. Their imperial fallout resulted not in national guilt (like the French) or pragmatic cowardice with scant regard to consequences (the English again) but mature legislation designed to create social justice, not merely use it as a sound bite. This lead to the multicultural tolerance that allowed Amsterdam to become for some the most civilised city in the world and for others (mainly the Dutch), an increasing pain in the ass. The social and cultural history of the country could have been a template for all, but then fundamentalist abusers intervened with a gun and killed Theo Van Gogh, a Dutch filmmaker who was in the process of working with Hirsi Ali, a Dutch assimilated Somalian woman who wrote the book The Caged Virgin (an inside view of the horrors of the lives of many Moslem women). The Dutch people I have met have invariably been polite, witty and converse in embarrasingly well elucidated English...
