Описание: This all-star tribute features many of today's top rock journalists from Rolling Stone, CREEM, Billboard, and more, as well as reflections on the band from some of rock's greatest performers, including members of the Kinks, Aerosmith, Heart, Mott the Hoople, the Minutemen, the Hold Steady, and many more.
Glorious concert and behind-the-scenes photography cover the band from the first shows in 1968 as the New Yardbirds through today. More than 450 rare concert posters, backstage passes, tickets, LPs and singles, t-shirts, buttons, and more illustrate the book. A discography and tour itinerary complete the package, making a book as epic as the band it documents.
Created from the ashes of the Yardbirds by guitarist and session wizard Jimmy Page, Led Zeppelin featured virtuoso bass player John Paul Jones, gonzo drummer John Bonham, and Robert Plant, a vocalist like no other before him. The band single-handedly defined what rock 'n' roll could be, leaving in their wake tales as tall or as real as we wanted them to be.
All of that, plus exclusive commentary from Ray Davies of the Kinks, Steve Earle, Kid Rock, Ace Frehley of Kiss, Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty, Chris Robinson of the Black Crowes, Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora, Lenny Kravitz, Dolly Parton, and many more make this book one that no fan of Led Zeppelin will want to miss!
Описание: Bruce Springsteen is a platinum-shifting, stadium-filling rock star, but he is also more nuanced than that. He is a man of the people, making conventional-and-proud-of-it rock music aimed at the American working class.
A supreme songwriter, Springsteen is a rock 'n' roll legend, and this lavishly illustrated book is an examination of his life and music. A comprehensive overview of a fascinating and unique artist, Boss: Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band - The Illustrated History is a tribute to Springsteen's body of work, from the rock anthem Born to Run to his sepia-toned analysis of working-class misery, The River. There's Springsteen's gnarly, Bonnie and Clyde-style tableaux Atlantic City, as well as his debunking of guys' yearnings for youthful Glory Days. Throughout it all, Springsteen has demonstrated that he knows how to create a classic track. Find out once and for all why his nickname is The Boss.
In the 1980s, heavy metal went mainstream. The dark themes and brain-busting riffage of bands like Black Sabbath and Deep Purple suddenly fell out of favor--replaced by a new legion of metalheads whose themes of girls, partying, girls, drugs, and girls were presented amid shredding solos and power ballads and who were, for some reason, more acceptable to the masses. In this ultimate guide to the subgenre, acclaimed heavy-metal journalist Martin Popoff examines hair metal in an all-encompassing oral history jacked up by a kaleidoscope of outrageous and previously unpublished quotes, anecdotes, photos, and memorabilia. The Big Book of Hair Metal features the observations of dozens of musicians, producers, promoters, label execs, and hanger-ons in examining hair metal's rise and fall as well as all the bands that kept Aqua Net in business through the Reagan recession: Twisted Sister, Bon Jovi, Poison, M tley Cr e, Ratt, Warrant, Great White, Whitesnake, Cinderella, Vixen, Skid Row, L.A. Guns, Guns N' Roses, and dozens more. In crafting a narrative of hair metal, Popoff also examines the factors that contributed to the movement's rise (including MTV, Reagan's "morning in America," and a general move toward prudish morals); the bands that inspired it (the Sweet, New York Dolls, Alice Cooper, and KISS, for a start); and the scenes that nurtured it (the Sunset Strip, anyone?). The ride finally ended circa 1991, when hair metal was replaced by grunge, but what a ride it was. Here it is in all of its primped-up glory.

Описание: Although their career with their wild and unpredictable frontman lasted barely six years, The Doors are one of the most mind-blowing bands in rock history. Formed in Los Angeles in 1965 by UCLA film school acquaintances Jim Morrison and Ray Manzarek, the band became famous for a sound driven by powerful keyboards and haunting, stream-of-consciousness lyrics. Rounded out by guitarist Robbie Krieger and drummer John Densmore, the quartet released a string of six highly successful studio albums. Jim Morrison's death at age 27 didn't stop him or the band from joining the rock world's pantheon.
The Doors: The Illustrated History is an extensive, chronological examination of the band's career with Morrison - a period which, though brief, suffers no shortage of tales and anecdotes - as well as their short stint as a trio post-Morrison and their more recent collaborations with the likes of Ian Astbury, Perry Farrell, Scott Weiland, and Skrillex. Candid concert images, revealing offstage photographs, and images of memorabilia like picture sleeves, gig posters, ticket stubs, buttons, and more comprise over 250 illustrations. A roster of respected music journalists' insightful analyses of each of the band's studio releases completes this in-depth, up-close look at this intense group of musicians and the legendary music they created. No fan will want to miss it!

Описание: Brassae, born in Hungary as Gyula Halasz in 1894, began his artistic apprenticeship in Berlin before moving to Paris and launching a career that would establish him as a key figure in the evolution of photography. Brassae's importance as a photo-grapher was recognized early in his career, affording him a privileged position from which to witness the varied aspects and milieus of Parisian life during the 1920s and 1930s. During and just after the war, Brassae collaborated with other artists and writers, and displayed his own artistic proficiency in multiple domains including theater, cinema, sculpture, drawing, and writing. The late 1940s marked the beginning of a new period in Brassae's life, during which he married and became a naturalized French citizen. In the 1950s and early 1960s, he traveled extensively and executed his original graffiti compositions that would acquire international fame. Toward the end of his life, the artist returned to reading and writing.Brassae, who remained at the cutting edge of avant-garde, refused to espouse a single style; his rich body of work exceeds definition. This illustrated biography is based largely on unpublished documents and photographs from the artist's personal archives. The author shares stories told to her by Brassae's wife Gilberte and by several of the artist's friends, including Henry Miller, Mire, Henri Michaux, and Raymond Queneau. Filtering a rich variety of sources, Brassae offers a detailed and multifaceted view of the artist's life and of the bonds that link him and his legendary images to Paris.
