Dirty Blvd.: The Life and Music of Lou Reed

Dirty Blvd.: The Life and Music of Lou Reed by Aidan LevyA tremendously insightful biography of the man who helmed the Velvet Underground and single-handedly created alternative rock

This book covers not only the highlights of Reed's career, but explores lesser-known facets of his work, such as his first recordings with doo-wop group the Jades, his key literary influences, the impact of Judaism upon his work, and his engagement with the LGBT movement. Drawing from original interviews with many of his artistic collaborators, friends, and romantic partners, as well as from archival material, concert footage, and unreleased bootlegs of live performances,...

Love Becomes a Funeral Pyre: A Biography of the Doors

Love Becomes a Funeral Pyre: A Biography of the Doors by Mick WallFrom one of rock's greatest writers, Love Becomes a Funeral Pyre is the definitive biography of the Doors

Spanning the entire history of the band, from the birth of its members to the deaths of those who have departed, this book will long remain the definitive history of a band that changed the history of popular music. The band that started out as the "American Rolling Stones," noted for their wildly unpredictable performances, their jazzy vibe, and the crazed monologues of their front man, ended as badly as did the '60s: abruptly, bloodily, cripplingly. Along with evoking the cultural milieu...

Noise from the North End: The Amazing Story of The Ugly Ducklings

Noise from the North End: The Amazing Story of The Ugly Ducklings by Dave BinghamIt was the 1960's. The British Invasion was under way as The Who, Beatles and Rolling Stones dominated the top of the charts.

To Make the Moment Last: The Story of the Incredible Jades

To Make the Moment Last: The Story of the Incredible Jades by William E. Thrasher Jr.

The sixties gave rise to a whole new generation of music. Led by Barry Gordy's Motown Records and Al Bell's Stax Records, soul music was taking the nation by storm. Any rhythm and blues band worth its salt was playing their sounds.

When the Incredible Jades formed in Arkansas in 1967, this music was the fuel for their inspiration. A group of talented and energetic young black men full of dreams, the Jades played their hearts out to every local and regional venue within their reach, gradually making their mark among night clubs and social groups. What followed was a year of amazing and memorable...

Classical Seattle: Maestros, Impresarios, Virtuosi, and Other Music Makers

Classical Seattle: Maestros, Impresarios, Virtuosi, and Other Music Makers by Melinda Bargreen

The past 50 years have seen a tremendous arts boom in Seattle, which has given the city not only internationally recognized classical music institutions but also great performance halls to showcase their work and that of visiting artists. From Igor Stravinsky's presence as guest conductor at the World's Fair in 1962, to Speight Jenkins's masterly production of Wagner's Ring cycle, to the work of benefactors such as Jack and Becky Benaroya, Seattle is deservingly well known as a city of the musical arts.

Petty: The Biography

Petty: The Biography by Warren Zanes

An exhilarating and intimate account of the life of music legend Tom Petty, by an accomplished writer and musician who toured with Petty

No one other than Warren Zanes, rocker and writer and friend, could author a book about Tom Petty that is as honest and evocative of Petty's music and the remarkable rock and roll history he and his band helped to write.

Born in Gainesville, Florida, with more than a little hillbilly in his blood, Tom Petty was a Southern shit kicker, a kid without a whole lot of promise. Rock and roll made it otherwise. From meeting Elvis, to seeing the Beatles on Ed Sullivan,...

Sinatra: The Chairman

Sinatra: The Chairman by James Kaplan
Just in time for the Chairman's centennial, the endlessly absorbing sequel to James Kaplan's bestselling Frank: The Voice—finally the definitive biography that Frank Sinatra, justly termed "The Entertainer of the Century," deserves and requires. Like Peter Guralnick on Elvis, Kaplan goes behind the legend to give us the man in full, in his many guises and aspects: peerless singer, (sometimes) powerful actor, business mogul, tireless lover, and associate of the powerful and infamous.

In 2010's Frank: The Voice, James Kaplan, in rich, distinctive, compulsively readable prose, told the story of...

Catch Me When I Fall: A Story of Punk Rock, Addiction and Recovery

Catch Me When I Fall: A Story of Punk Rock, Addiction and Recovery by CJ GunnAt sixteen, I was just another poor kid in Cleveland learning to play power chords on my guitar. It never crossed my mind at that time that in a few years, I'd be playing onstage in Argentina with my musical idol in front of 17,000 rabid fans. I learned two things on my incredible journey. One is that, no matter where you start, you can reach the stars. The other is, you'd better watch your step when you get there because it's a long way to fall.

Before Carrie Brownstein became a music icon, she was a young girl growing up in the Pacific Northwest just as it was becoming the setting for one the most important movements in rock history. Seeking a sense of home and identity, she would discover both while moving from spectator to creator in experiencing the power and mystery of a live performance.

Personal Journey: John Zaradin in Conversation with Hephzibah Yohannan at Chemin de Guitardou, Cambon d'Albi, France

Personal Journey: John Zaradin in Conversation with Hephzibah Yohannan at Chemin de Guitardou, Cambon d'Albi, France by John Zaradin & Hephzibah YohannanThe young John Zaradin felt driven to make his life in music against all 'sensible' career advice offered by his peers and parents.

These included - in addition to all aspects of music, its performance and the business of survival - a rigorous self-examination and a continual re-focusing on his stated aim. His choice to both listen and act on what he was absorbing helped him to...
