Can I Say: Living Large, Cheating Death, and Drums, Drums, Drums by Travis Barker & Gavin Edwards

Travis Barker's soul-baring memoir chronicles the highlights and lowlights of the renowned drummer's art and his life, including the harrowing plane crash that nearly killed him and his traumatic road to recovery—a fascinating never-before-told-in-full story of personal reinvention grounded in musical salvation and fatherhood.

After breaking out as the acclaimed drummer of the multiplatinum punk band Blink-182, everything changed for Travis Barker. But the dark side of rock stardom took its toll: his marriage, chronicled for an MTV reality show, fell apart. Constant touring concealed a serious...

Carlos Chavez and His World

Carlos Chavez and His World by Leonora Saavedra

Carlos Ch?vez (1899–1978) is the central figure in Mexican music of the twentieth century and among the most eminent of all Latin American modernist composers. An enfant terrible in his own country, Ch?vez was an integral part of the emerging music scene in the United States in the 1920s. His highly individual style—diatonic, dissonant, contrapuntal—addressed both modernity and Mexico's indigenous past. Ch?vez was also a governmental arts administrator, founder of major Mexican cultural institutions, and conductor and founder of the Orquesta Sinf?nica de M?xico. Carlos Ch?vez and His World ...

101 Artistic Toastmasters

101 Artistic Toastmasters by Armando CristoforiThroughout history it is the visionary artist who has expressed the essence of the human experience.

With advances in technology, we now have the ability to capture these artistic expressions and share them with other curious individuals. Within each artist's mode or media of expression lies a story about the artist, his or her culture and life experience. If we read the writings of Homer, Woolf, Shakespeare,...
