The New York Times Bestseller On the 40th anniversary of The Band’s legendary The Last Waltz concert, Robbie Robertson finally tells his own spellbinding story of the band that changed music history, his extraordinary personal journey, and his creative friendships with some of the greatest artists of the last half-century. Robbie Robertson's singular contributions to popular music have made him one of the most beloved songwriters and guitarists of his time. With songs like "The Weight," "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down," and "Up on Cripple Creek," he and his partners in The Band fashioned a music that has endured for decades, influencing countless musicians. In this captivating memoir, written over five years of reflection, Robbie Robertson employs his unique storyteller’s voice to weave together the journey that led him to some of the most pivotal events in music history. He recounts the adventures of his half-Jewish, half-Mohawk upbringing on the Six Nations Indian Reserve and on the gritty streets of Toronto; his odyssey at sixteen to the Mississippi Delta, the fountainhead of American music; the wild early years on the road with rockabilly legend Ronnie Hawkins and The Hawks; his unexpected ties to the Cosa Nostra underworld; the gripping trial-by-fire “going electric” with Bob Dylan on his 1966 world tour, and their ensuing celebrated collaborations; the formation of the Band and the forging of their unique sound, culminating with history's most famous farewell concert, brought to life for all time in Martin Scorsese's great movie The Last Waltz. This is the story of a time and place--the moment when rock 'n' roll became life, when legends like Buddy Holly and Bo Diddley criss-crossed the circuit of clubs and roadhouses from Texas to Toronto, when The Beatles, Hendrix, The Stones, and Warhol moved through the same streets and hotel rooms. It's the story of exciting change as the world tumbled through the '60s and early 70’s, and a generation came of age, built on music, love and freedom. Above all, it's the moving story of the profound friendship between five young men who together created a new kind of popular music. Testimony is Robbie Robertson’s story, lyrical and true, as only he could tell it.

Recombo DNA

The Story of Devo, or How the '60s Became the '80s

Author: Kevin C. Smith

Category: Biography & Autobiography

Page: 320

(Book). Devo may have become synonymous with the crass commercialism of '80s new wave, but many of their inspirations and guiding principles are firmly rooted in the idealism of the '60s. They took a willfully non-traditional approach to the surprisingly conservative world of rock music, seeking inspiration instead from Dada and Pop art, comic books and homemade electronics, and in the process becoming a sort of musical Zelig, crossing paths with everything from late '60s psychedelia to punk, krautrock to new wave. Their idiosyncratic philosophy may not always have been consistent, but it served as a deep well of inspiration, and led to them working with such legendary characters as art-rock pioneer Brian Eno and Beatles/Bowie engineer Ken Scott. Published to coincide with the group's 40th anniversary in 2013, "Recombo DNA" is the first book to evaluate in the proper context the innovations and accomplishments of this truly groundbreaking band. Beginning in 1970, with the transformative effects of the Kent State University shootings which the band-members witness firsthand and ending a decade later with Devo on the cusp of superstardom (with "Whip It"), it traces the sounds and ideas that the group absorbed and in turn brought to prominence as unlikely rock stars. For anyone who has ever wondered where "the band who fell to earth" came from, here is the answer.

Wake Up! to the World of Bernard Rhodes

-Appeals to popular culture book buyers and collectors, especially those dealing in biographies and memoirs, popular music history, punk culture, or the Clash -Published to follow the Clash's 40th anniversary in 2016, this is a testament to the man who both facillitated the band's formation and held it together From the growth of punk and beyond, this visually rich collection of art, fashion and ephemera, accompanied by essays, draws from the archives and philosophy of one of the 'prime instigators' of UK punk - Bernard Rhodes. Wake Up! To the World of Bernard Rhodes is a first-hand account of the punk movement. Bernard Rhodes shares his title of 'prime instigator of UK punk' with Malcom McLaren. Been there, seen it, done it hardly does Rhodes' story justice. Inspired by the avant-garde Situationist movement, and the designer of radical t-shirts for McLaren and the Vivienne Westwood Kings Road shop, it was Rhodes who introduced John Lydon to the Sex Pistols before engineering the formation of the Clash. With him as their manager, and the co-creator of their super-committed style, the Clash became and remains one of the biggest bands of the era, and a symbol of punk as a positive force. Alongside his two stints with them, Rhodes also nurtured the Specials and Dexy's Midnight Runners to huge success.

The book starts at the beginning, a rags to riches story of 3 Air Force Brats who eventually met in London, England at the height of the "American Invasion" of music. Courted by every Record Label in town, the band chose to sign with Warner Bros. Records and the rest as they say is History. With the release of their acoustic and vocal harmony masterpiece, "A Horse With No Name", the band was catapulted to the top of the music charts worldwide. Their self-titled debut album containing the forementioned single reached the #1 spot on Music Charts around the world. The book is an insider's look at the opulent and sometimes sleazy world of Rock and Roll during the Golden Years of the 70's. Dan's depiction of meeting the A-List Celebrities of the day, including Rod Stewart, the Beatles, Rolling Stones, CSNY, Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne as well as Movie Stars Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty among others is a compelling read. With feedback such as "Couldn't put it down till I was finished" and "Now reading it for the 3rd time" are typical of the comments the book has engendered. Legendary Managers David Geffen and Elliot Roberts helped guide them and the soon enlisted the talents of Sir George Martin, known for his work with the Beatles. Sir George produced 5 of the 7 albums the group recorded for Warner Brothers and was instrumental in keeping them at the top of the charts, album after album. The book also chronicles the painful breakup of the band as Dan Peek left to pursue a solo career which resulted in a groundbreaking CCM album, "All Things Are Possible" which garnered a Grammy nomination.

The Beatles Come to America

When the Beatles touched down in New York on February 7, 1964 for their first visit to America, they brought with them a sound that hadn't been heard before. By the time they returned to England two weeks later, major changes in music, fashion, the record industry, and the image of an entire generation had been set into motion. Coming less than three months after the assassination of President Kennedy, the Beatles' visit helped rouse the country out of mourning. A breathless and condescending media concentrated on the band's hairstyles and their adoring fans, but their enduring importance lay in their music, their wit, and style, a disconnect that signaled the beginning of the generation gap. In this intriguing cultural history, Martin Goldsmith examines how and why the Beatles struck such a lasting chord. Martin Goldsmith (Kensington, MD), the author of The Inextinguishable Symphony (0-471-35097-4), is a program director for XM Satellite Radio in Washington, D.C. From 1989 to 1999, he hosted Performance Today, NPR's daily classical music program.
