Country Joe and Me is about a rock-folk icon and a San Francisco public school teacher. A long time ago Country Joe McDonald and his Navy pal Ron Cabral had an idea to write a book about the story of their lives. They met in 1960 while serving in the U.S.Navy as 18-year old sailors at Naval Air Station Atsugi, Japan. Follow their interactions over several decades - a roller coaster ride of shared experiences in the military, education and music. Told by Cabral from the perspective of "ground zero" it offers a unique look at the emergence of Country Joe and the cultural, political, and musical revolution that blossomed in San Francisco and Berkeley during the late 60's and early 70's.- There are chapters on Country Joe and The Fish, Janis Joplin and Joe's brief love affair with her. Go behind the scenes with Bill Graham and Jerry Garcia during "Summerland" - a very special project for high school students initiated by Country Joe while he was a volunteer teacher in Ron's school called Opportunity High .Also included are the lyrics to some of Country Joe's most important songs, memorabilia, rare photos, a discography and a lot more-- There is a special Afterword by Country Joe on his role with the Vietnam Vets over the years. A must read for every Country Joe fan. This is the only book currently available on Country Joe. For more information on Country Joe see countryjoe.com.

Book Description Paperback. Condition: New. 224 pages. Ron Cabral chronicles his 40 year friendship with Country Joe McDonald. Its a journey that weaves through the Vietnam conflict, the psychedelic 60s of San Francisco, the peace movement, and of course, some highflying rock n roll. Its a wonderful story that contains many interesting side trips with some colorful characters, many of whom are no longer with us. Cabral revisits the era with a birds eye view from his perch right in the middle of all the action. I loved it. Bravo!J. C. JuanisPublicist, Phil Lesh and FriendsThere are some individuals whose contributions to the culture of their times far outweighs that originally made them famous. Of all the figures of the sixties, Country Joe McDonald, of the quintessential psychedelic band Country Joe and the Fish, is one such figure. More that the music he produced during the sixties, which is perhaps one of purest expressions of the psychedelic genre, he embodied the attitude, the insight, the indignation and the humor that characterized the best of that generation. And, unlike others of that time whos politics proved to be just a style like their clothes and hair, Country Joes commitment to social progress and enlightenment, up to and including the present day, has remained consistent, as presented and portrayed in Ron Cabrals excellent historybiographymemoir of te entertainer and activist. Mark Weiman, Author Atlantis. Publisher of the San Franciso Oracle (historical edition) - The legendary psychedelic Haight Ashbury newspaperIn todays society, the concept of extreme is commodified and sold on prime time. There was a time in the not-so- distant past when Country Joe and The Fish were considered fearsome freaks by the burghers and elite alike. Ron Cabral chronicles his lifelong friendship with Country Joe McDonald and the latters protest roots, psychedelic craftsmanship, and military veterans activism. The freak flag flies freely throughout this epic memoir. Michael Simmons, LA Weekly, High TimesOne. . . two. . . three. . . what is he writing for Navy buddy Ron Cabral follows Petty Officer Joe McDonald, through his transformations into Country Joe, world reknowned rock singer, peace activist, and and Vietnam Veterans advocate. Its a book about music, war, politics, the sixties and, most of all, friendship. Joel Selvin, Author Summer of Love. Pop Music Critic - San Francisco ChronicleIts a wonderful read, full of nostalgia and some fascinating sequences. Phil Elwood, San Francisco Examiner and Chronicle - Jazz and Lively Arts Critic EmeritusRons book is about how Joe McDonald became Country Joe and some of their adventures in the Navy, in the public schools and in the counterculture. It is also a compelling story about rock and roll in San Francisco. Sam Andrew, Big Brother and the Holding Company, Kozmic Blues BandWell I know I was there. I have the pictures to prove it. Did we really do all those things As Pete Seeger would say, Wasnt that a time! As Jerry Garcia would say, What a long strange trip its been. As Robin Williams would say, If you can remember the sixties you werent there. I think this is a great book! It fills in the blanks and its a good read.
