Screen Shot 2015-05-20 at 5.20.08 PMIf you’ve ever sung “Hey, Hey, We’re the Monkees”, you’ve got songwriter Bobby Hart to thank. This titan of rock ‘n’ roll shares his intensely personal tale as one of America’s leading hit makers in Psychedelic Bubble Gum: Boyce & Hart, The Monkees, and Turning Mayhem into Miracles. Throughout his forty year career, Hart’s songs have been recorded by artists as diverse as Alicia Keys, the Sex Pistols, New Edition, Andy Williams, Eric Burdon & the Animals, Lulu, Dean Martin, Roger Williams, Herman’s Hermits, and Lester Flat & Earl Scruggs. 
For music lovers all over the world, Hart’s music is the soundtrack of their lives, thanks not only to his hit records, but also to the music he composed for film and television. Hart has sung, written and/or produced songs whose records, CDs and downloads approach 100 million in sales. He has been nominated for Grammy, Golden Globe and Academy Awards, and is the subject of a 2015 documentary “The Guys Who Wrote ‘Em”. But being a hit factory can take a spiritual toll, and Hart’s search led him to yoga and meditation as a way to keep his life in balance. In Psychedelic Bubble Gum, Hart details the pitfalls he encountered and the lessons he learned on his journey and offers tips on: how to reinforce your own creativity, find your unique role in life, and actualize your goals – whether they are spiritual or worldly. Psychedelic Bubble Gum is as much a spiritual guidebook as it is a memoir. It’s the tale of one of the most iconic songwriters and producers of our time, and how he made it through with his soul intact.
