1 of the great ideas of country rock that she worked with polish the band " Swampwater"... look it up on Wikipedia..
And my understanding the mighty Clarence White the awesome guitarist was killed by a drunk women driver not just a truck..
Huge deal! on this but... I really like all the story and correct facts., An inside examination of how the rock music business controlled from agents working with musicians and musical groupings to develop their talents to making hit information. A very competitive business filled with stress, drugs and alcohol, money issues, and continuous human relations problems. Historically this period in the music scene produced great rock musicians and music. Musical tastes change with time and artists come and go in popularity. Also technology and how the saving and music business is run is promoting. Very informative reading., Being a child of the '60's I've read a number of Rock N' Roll bio's. I had created rate this somewhat better than average but certainly not great. Hoskyns will provide some interesting insights about some of the big egos of the Southern California music picture. For example, Neil Young results in pretty much as a self-centered SOB. On the other hand, the issue I have with Hoskyns (I also read his John Lennon biography) is that, in my thoughts and opinions, he tends to take liberty with the facts- why I don't know- maybe from laziness or to add a little drama. Overall, not a bad read for a lazy weekend., When I actually first started this guide it smacked of name shedding, boring and confusing details that seemed disoriented, and I almost packed it up. Problem was-- I was expecting the wrong thing. As I went further I realized that combined with the included artists was a fundamental background of the industry itself-- which eventually became a fundamental element of the story. The book expertly details relationships of artist to artist---- artist to record company-- and all the chess games that were played to put certain people into certain places--- and also why certain people failed to get to certain places. Lots of company web-spinning but intriguing none-the less. It also includes the change of music direction/development morphing from the late 60's to the mid 70's. A nice offering. Believable, interesting, and comfortable. Primarily for individuals that went through it or are enthusiastic about what it was all about., Hotel-California is more than a biopic of CSNY and the contemporaries. It is an analysis of the artists and compositions that changed the face of popular music in the '60's, 70's and 80's - not once but over and over again. Along the way, we watch with fascination as passionate singer-songwriters congregating in the valleys of LA become the most crucial force in popular music. The changes they result, their motivations, their impacts, their collaborations and inspirations are all brought to life. The destructive effects of their resultant fame, power and wealth are also well documented and serve as a cautionary coda to this well researched and fast paced look at this incredibly important period in popular music., This is the definitive story of Lauro Canyon and the surge and fall of the singer-songwriters that defined an era. Fabulous backstage gossip, great interviews, and an extended, revealing look at Jesse Geffen and his role in shaping the noise and artistry of so many great musicians -- Joni, Laura, CSNY, Gene Clark, JT, alla t?nkbara sj?kl?der.
I actually enjoyed this book so much I didn't want it to finish. It also switched me on to some forgotten songwriters and albums that got lost in the shuffle -- Judee Sill being one amazing example.
An essential read for music fans., A really interesting insight into the lives and times of the Laurel Canyon crowd of musicians in the late 60's and 70's. It covers all the major players and some minor one you might not exactly have noticed about, but were significant influences and collaborators/co-writers (like J. D Souther). It also covers the major producers (particularly David Geffen) and their role in the whole scene. It also includes the drug excesses and despair of the people who let their addictions overcome their professional. If you are a fan of the Byrds, CSNY, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, James Taylor swift, Joni MItchell, the Eagles, Gram Parsons and all the others who have been a part of this picture, you will learn things about these artists you didn't know before. The sections about David Crosby, Steven Photos, Graham Nash, and Neil Young - their life styles, ego clashes and tumultuous relationships - is particularly interesting. 'Some of it's magic, some of it's tragic', but a great read overall.
