On her way to New York in 1959, a young Australian journalist Lillian Roxon, who’d grown up as an impressionable teenager in the town of Brisbane awash with American servicemen, stopped in Hawaii to interview Colonel Tom Parker. Symbolically this would mark the beginning of Lillian’s passion for Rock’n’Roll. Ten years later, she was the queen of New York’s coolest club, Max’s Kansas City, and would write the first ever Rock Encyclopedia. Roxon lived close to the Factory and was friends with Warhol and his superstars and the rock crowd who increasingly flocked to Max’s to be seen and to hear the new sounds of Alice Cooper, Iggy Pop, and the New York Dolls. At Max’s, Pop Art collided with rock and roll and ultimately gave rise to the birth of Punk.
