T Bone Burnett is a unique, astonishingly prolific music producer, singer-songwriter, guitarist, and soundtrack visionary. Renowned as a studio maven with a Midas touch, Burnett is known for lifting artists to their greatest heights, as he did with Raising Sand, the multiple Grammy Award–winning album by Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, as well as acclaimed albums by Los Lobos, the Wallflowers, B. B. King, and Elvis Costello. Burnett virtually invented “Americana” with his hugely successful roots-based soundtrack for the Coen Brothers film, O Brother, Where Art Thou? Outspoken in his contempt for the entertainment industry, Burnett has nevertheless received many of its highest honors, including Grammy Awards and an Academy Award. T Bone Burnett offers the first critical appreciation of Burnett’s wide-ranging contributions to American music, his passionate advocacy for analog sound, and the striking contradictions that define his maverick artistry. Lloyd Sachs highlights all the important aspects of Burnett’s musical pursuits, from his early days as a member of Bob Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Revue and his collaboration with the playwright Sam Shepard to the music he recently composed for the TV shows Nashville and True Detective and his production of the all-star album Lost on the River: The New Basement Tapes. Sachs also underscores Burnett’s brilliance as a singer-songwriter in his own right. Going well beyond the labels “legendary” or “visionary” that usually accompany his name, T Bone Burnett reveals how this consummate music maker has exerted a powerful influence on American music and culture across four decades.

In 2000, Joel and Ethan Coen released the film O Brother, Where Art Thou? The film's soundtrack included performances from "American Roots"--Style musicians. The soundtrack sparked a massive commercial and cultural response. The Coens selected T Bone Burnett to produce the project, a role that included choosing the musicians, repertoire, and recording technique. At the helm, Burnett brought his own established musical and cultural agenda to the soundtrack. O Brother's success received attention form a variety of media sources. The conceptualization and realization of the project, however, remained largely untold. Additionally, the extraordinary career of T Bone Burnett, so crucial to the shape of the soundtrack, has never been fully assembled. This thesis presents for the first time Burnett and the O Brother soundtrack's extensive backgrounds, collected with the intention to understand more fully the project's impact not only on the roots music movement but also upon the mainstream American culture.

In his first book, Life on Planet Rock, author Lonn Friend shared his ringside view of rock’s decade of decadence. Now, in Sweet Demotion, the veteran rock scribe takes off the gloves and battles himself. Lonn was enjoying a six-figure multi-media career in 1998 when, at the end of a four-year run as a record company VP, he was “bitch slapped by the Universe”; his professional ride came to a crashing pause. But instead of hiring headhunters or putting a resume together to find another gig, Lonn hit the rock-and-roll road less traveled. The result is a brutally transparent, shamelessly self-deprecating mid-life memoir of a writer who stopped making money and started seeking truth. Sweet Demotion chronicles a thirteen-year period of personal deconstruction, spiritual madness, and bizarre anecdotal wordplay where faith was lost in everything but the moment and the music. Lonn’s intimate adventure invites the reader to a porn burial in the desert, a Janis Joplin ghost sighting, a Dallas meditation on the anniversary of JFK’s assassination following the interview of a heavy metal legend, and the sharing of sacred space on a northeast lake with the lead singer of Aerosmith. Sweet Demotion is a sojourn to near-enlightenment that no one but Lonn Friend could have possibly experienced.

The first volume to reveal the post-production process of a major motion picture (Cold Mountain) edited entirely in Final Cut Pro! Offers a rare inside glimpse at the creative process of one of cinema's giants: threetime Academy Award-winning editor Walter Murch. Includes anecdotes from the director, edit staff, and producers; photos, emails, and journal entries from Murch; and behind-the-scenes insights. Accounts from Apple's Final Cut Pro team about what they think about the future of it in feature films. As the first software-only desktop nonlinear editing system, Final Cut Pro sat the film industry on its ear when it debuted back in 1999. Now it's shaking things up again as editor Walter Murch, director Anthony Minghella, and a long list of Hollywood heavy-hitters are proving that this under-$1,000 software can (and should) be used to edit a multi-million dollar motion picture! This book tells the story of that endeavor: the decision to use Final Cut Pro, the relationship between the technology and art (and craft) of movie-making, how Final Cut Pro was set up and configured for Cold Mountain, how the software's use affected the work flow, and its implications for the future of filmmaking. More than anything, however, this is Murch's own story of what seemed to many a crazy endeavor-- told through photos, journal entries, email musings, and anecdotes that give readers an inside view of what the film editor does and how this particular film progressed through post-production. The book includes, in his own words, Murch's vision, approach, and thoughts on storytelling as he shapes Cold Mountain under the intense pressures of completing a major studio film.

»Mit guten Manieren und schlechtem Atem kommt man nirgendwo hin.« Getreu dieser Devise sang Elvis Costello in seinem Protestsong gegen Margaret Thatcher, er werde auf ihrem Grab stehen und darauf herumtrampeln. Bei seinem legendären Auftritt bei Saturday Night Live stellte er sich der Zensur von Bands wie den Sex Pistols im Radio entgegen. Bis heute nimmt Costello bei seiner Kritik an politischen Missständen und jeder Form von Nationalismus nie ein Blatt vor den Mund. In den dreißig Alben, mit denen der Brite seit 1977 Erfolge feiert, erfand sich der eigenwillige Künstler immer wieder neu. Seine rauen Anfänge lagen zwischen Rock, New Wave und Punk - und schon damals erreichte er ein Millionenpublikum. Mit »She«, aufgenommen für die romantische Komödie »Notting Hill«, rührte er die Herzen aller Liebenden. Über alle Hinwendungen zu so unterschiedlichen Stilrichtungen wie Country, Folk, Motown, Jazz, Ska und Klassik hinweg begeistert Costello seine Fans - und ist dabei in Deutschland gerade mit seinen jüngsten Alben besonders erfolgreich. Elvis Costellos Buch erklärt die Hintergründe seiner legendären Songtexte und berührt durch seine Poesie.

"In detailing his recovery from the accident and his roundabout climb back onstage, Bell shines a light in those dark corners of the music business that, for the lone musician whose success is measured not by the Top 40 but by nightly victories, usually fall outside of the spotlight. Bell's prose is not unlike his lyrics: spare, beautiful, evocative, and often sneak-up-on-you funny. His chronicle of his own life and near death on the road reveals what it means to live for one's art."--BOOK JACKET.

On the prairie west of Fort Worth, British-born Humphrey Barker Chamberlin commissioned a model mansion, grand hotel, trolley line, lake, and waterworks in the early 1890s. He launched Chamberlin Arlington Heights as an opulent suburb reminiscent of his Capitol Hill enclave in Denver, then lost his overextended empire in the silver panic of 1893. Although several more well-to-do families established homes near those of the original "Heights pioneers," development progressed slowly. With the coming of World War I, local leaders persuaded the U.S. Army to build Camp Bowie across much of the sparsely settled area, providing infrastructure. A bungalow boom followed, with housing additions for the middle class and annexation by Fort Worth. As the 20th century drew to a close, preservationists sought protection for the legacy of built treasures within the neighborhood.

Das erste Buch von Poplegende Sir Elton John: über seine persönlichen Erfahrungen mit Aids und sein Engagement gegen die Epidemie: "1980, als die ersten Aidsfälle bekannt wurden, war ich drogenabhängig und führte ein selbstzerstörerisches Leben. Es ist ein wahres Wunder, dass ich mich nicht infizierte. In jenen Jahren verlor ich durch die Krankheit Dutzende von Freunden. In diesem Buch erzähle ich ihre und meine Geschichte. Das Immunschwächesyndrom zu bekämpfen wurde zur vordringlichsten Mission seines Lebens. "An Aids", schreibt Elton John, "ist nur eines rätselhaft: dass es diese Krankheit immer noch gibt, obwohl wir wissen, wie wir sie stoppen können." Seine Überzeugung nach 20 Jahren Einsatz gegen die Epidemie: "Wir kennen viele Mittel, der Ausbreitung des Virus Einhalt zu gebieten, doch wenn es darum geht, sie anzuwenden, stehen engstirnige Religionsführer und Politiker zuhauf im Weg. Von 34 Millionen HIV-Positiven haben nur 6 Millionen Zugang zu lebensrettender Medizin. Wir brauchen gute Forschung, aber genauso wichtig ist eine kollektive Anstrengung, die sozialen Barrieren niederzureißen und Brücken des Mitgefühls zu bauen."

Tom Petty: Rock 'n' Roll Guardian is the first intimate portrait of one of rock’s most enduring figures. Songs like American Girl, The Waiting and I Won’t Back Down have touched people from all walks of life because he sung about what he knew – love won, love lost and hardship overcome. Tom Petty’s predisposition to find trouble was always matched by his steely determination to overcome it. After shaky beginnings with his first band, Tom Petty steered his way through bankruptcy, drama and personal loss – including the deaths of his bandmates Roy Orbison, George Harrison and Heartbreakers bassist Howie Epstein – to forge a lasting impact on the world, selling more than 80 million records worldwide. In the wake of his death, this celebratory Omnibus Enhanced edition now features curated Spotify playlists of his early influences, his collaborations and his greatest songs. Additionally, an interactive Digital Timeline of his life charts his uncertain path with video footage of interviews, live performances and more. Born too late to be in the vanguard of rock ’n’ roll first time round, he has nonetheless proved a truly memorable keeper of the flame. This is his remarkable story...
