Fleetwood Mac on Fleetwood Mac: Interviews and Encounters

Fleetwood Mac on Fleetwood Mac: Interviews and Encounters by Sean EganFleetwood Mac was a triumph from the beginning-their first album was the UK's bestselling album of 1968. After some low points-when founder Peter Green left, some fans felt that the band continuing was sacrilege-Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks joined, and the band's 1977 album Rumours became one of history's immortals, a true classic that remained in the charts for years and public affection forever.  In the press, the ethereal Californian Stevie Nicks, the tormented rocker Lindsey Buckingham, the dignified English rose Christine McVie, the blunt-speaking John McVie, and the loquacious...

Sweet Dreams and Flying Machines: The Life and Music of James Taylor

Sweet Dreams and Flying Machines: The Life and Music of James Taylor by Mark RibowskyIn 1970 a scraggly, antiheroic young man from North Carolina by way of Massachusetts began  presenting a comforting new sound, a kind never heard before. Within a year, when young ears sought a new sound, there was "Fire and Rain" and "You've Got a Friend," and a new Southern California-fed branch of pop music. Taylor was its reluctant leader. Remarkably, Taylor has survived: his 2015 release, Before This World, edged out Taylor Swift and went to #1 on the charts. Today he is in better physical and probably mental condition than during the whirlwind when he influenced music so heavily, the...

Stick It! My Life of Sex, Drums, and Rock 'n' Roll by Carmine Appice & Ian Gittins & Rod StewartCarmine Appice has enjoyed a jaw-dropping rock-and-roll life-and now he is telling his scarcely believable story. Appice ran with teenage gangs in Brooklyn before becoming a global rock star in the Summer of Love, managed by the Mob. He hung with Hendrix, unwittingly paid for an unknown Led Zeppelin to support him on tour, taught John Bonham to play drums (and helped Fred Astaire too), and took part in Zeppelin's infamous deflowering of a groupie with a mud shark. After enrolling in Rod Stewart's infamous Sex Police, he hung out with Kojak, accidentally shared a house with Prince, was blood...

Porcelain: A Memoir

Porcelain: A Memoir by MobyFrom one of the most interesting and iconic musicians of our time, a piercingly tender, funny, and harrowing account of the path from suburban poverty and alienation to a life of beauty, squalor, and unlikely success out of the NYC club scene of the late '80s and '90s.

There were many reasons Moby was never going to make it as a DJ and musician in the New York club scene. This was the New York of Palladium; of Mars, Limelight, and Twilo; of unchecked, drug-fueled hedonism in pumping clubs where dance music was still largely underground, popular chiefly among working-class African Americans and...

Prince: A Thief in the Temple

Prince: A Thief in the Temple by Brian MortonPrince Rogers Nelson released his first album in 1978. In the years that followed until his death in April 2016, he became a superstar, a recluse, an inspiration, an enigma, a slave and a symbol. He was a master of reinvention, but the one constant in his astonishing career was his genius: as a singer, a songwriter, a performer and a musician. He sold more than 100 million albums, won seven Grammys, a Golden Globe and an Oscar. His ability to fuse styles and genres made him one of the most unique, influential and beloved artists in music history. In Prince: A Thief in the Temple, acclaimed journalist...

Bobby Rydell: Teen Idol On The Rocks: A Tale of Second Chances

Bobby Rydell: Teen Idol On The Rocks: A Tale of Second Chances by Bobby Rydell & Allan Slutsky

At seventeen, Bobby Rydell was the face of American Bandstand ??" the kid from Italian South Philly with the smoothest voice, the highest pompadour, and the sweetest smile. And there were those hits: “Wild One,” “Volare,” and “Forget Him,” to name a few. He was far more than just a teen idol. Bobby??s voice and boy next door charm earned him a spot singing, acting, and dancing with Ann-Margret in the film adaptation of the hit musical comedy, Bye Bye Birdie. His comedic talents made him a nighttime fixture during the golden age of TV variety shows, and his phrasing and musicianship...

Confessions of a Marijuana Eater: A Songwriter's Memoir

Confessions of a Marijuana Eater: A Songwriter's Memoir by Bobby Gosh

Songwriter Bobby Gosh??s memoir Confessions of a Marijuana Eater is part biography, popular music history, personal philosophy, and of course, public acknowledgement of his career-spanning use of cannabis.

By 1952 when Bobby Gosh started touring, using marijuana was not something one publicized. The Federal Bureau of Narcotics called it the “devil weed” and intended to round up musicians who played bad music ??" jazz ??" on marijuana charges in 1947; although later cancelled, cannabis use was criminalized and mandatory minimum sentences established. Needless to say, Gosh??s concerns about “coming...
