The respect this author has for Mr. This is all very fascinating stuff to learn about and appeals to the side of me that leafs through the tabloids when I'm in line at the grocery store. I would rather not applaud the fact that the author dug up evidence of a previous marriage that no one knew about publicly. Candid, refreshing, and written with a sincere appreciation of Dylan's music and influence, Down the Highway is an essential book for the millions of people who have enjoyed Dylan's music over the years. A fast-paced narrative and a great read. Luckily, I like reading about Dylan about as much as I like doing anything, so I've got that going for me.
Tie avīžnieki, draugs, ir tādi ķerti rakstieķeļi. This is an incredible introduction to the life and work of Bob Dylan. Dylan that is often unflattering, sometimes puzzling, but, to the author's credit, never sensational. Listen to the full audiobook Down the Highway for free at audilib. I really liked Sounes's bio of Bukowski and I have been a big Dylan follower since I was a teenager, so reading this one was a given.
We take abuse seriously in our discussion boards. It's the only Dylan bio I've read so it's hard to compare to others, but it acted as a great introduction for me to further explore whatever eras of Dylan I may be most interested in. The first album is not included because it contained only two songs written by Bob Dylan, and they are not well known. Wonderfully written in concise detail and beautifully read. Somehow, I've overlooked much of Dylan's catalogue. Ietvertās informācijas patiesumu nav vērts apšaubīt, jo grāmatas beigās 50 lappuses veltītas bibliogrāfijas sarakstam un informācijas avotiem.

This was meant to be the definitive biography of Bob Dylan to mark his 60th birthday in 2001. This book is not flawlessly written by any means. Dylan, like an amorous sailor, pretty much seemed to have a different woman in every port, his naturally secretive nature aiding him keep them generally unaware of each other. But then, great artists are usually complicated. I would have appreciated a little more detail on my favorite album, Oh Mercy.
Towards the end of the book you can tell Sounes is just describing Dylan shows he himself attended as though those moments are somehow significant moments in Dylan's life. For instance, could autism explain his social anxieties? The collection of essays does justice to this difficult Bob Dylan by examining his method and effects through a disparate set of viewpoints. Would have liked to have had more details about the later years of the artist's career as the author seemed like he wanted to simply wrap up the book by the end. Perhaps we have to chalk that up to the nature of a subject who strove from the early sixties on to obfuscate his background and motivations. He claimed to be an orphan with no parents.
Es raro el género biográfico. Me dieron ganas de leer la del Che de Anderson y la de Perón de Page. An excellent book about a remarkable man. O quizá sí ayude a poner un poco en perspectiva sus canciones y su imagen pública. Sounes is also a lot less arrogant than Heylin but Heylin is undoubtedly a better biographer even though I wish he would stop being so subjective in his analysis of Bob's albums. But the best discovery from the book is the Talkin' John Birch Paranoid Blues, a song that I did not know of before! Tās dzīvo pašas par sevi un vienkārši gaida, kad kāds tās pierakstīs. On the other hand, the book is written in a stilted, un-engaging style that has me guessing that English is not Howard Sounes's first language.
Its effect is to revitalize rather than reduce Bukowski's work: poems and stories that help keep people alive. Big moments, relationships, albums, and how the man has lived his life. He has sold tens of millions of records, played sell-out concerts all over the world, and been central to the significant musical developments of his era. His is the only biography to seriously address the past twenty years of Dylan's life, leading up to the extraordinary recent releases Time Out of Mind and Love and Theft. His is the only biography to seriously address the past twenty years of Dylan's life, leading up to the extraordinary recent releases Time Out of Mind and Love and Theft. Sounes strikes a healthy balance, packing the book with musical details aimed at Dylan diehards without wallowing in the dirty laundry that will no doubt make headlines. Sounes recounts each recording session and tour in a straight chronological catalogue, in formulaic fashion.
Born in Gainesville, Florida, with more than a little hillbilly in his blood, Tom Petty was a Southern shit kicker, a kid without a whole lot of promise. Este libro sirve para conocer a todas sus novias, ligues y esposas, su costoso divorcio de Sara, s Esta biografía del reciente Nobel llega hasta principios de los 2000. See details for description of any imperfections. My nomination would be Jonathan Coe, who wrote the amazing Life a Fiery Elephant, The Story of B. Since his mysterious death in 1971, millions more fans from a new generation have embraced his legacy, as layers of myth have gathered to enshroud the life, career, and true character of the man who was James Douglas Morrison.
Also the pronunciation of names were very off. Lucky breaks, chance meetings, generous girlfriends, supportive peers and a name change were equally as important to his success as his talent and headstrong ideas. Where's Bob Dylan whom I had to find in those pages? This is a good place to start if you want to find about This was a pretty good biography on Dylan and the first one I read on our 20th century bard. Perhaps we have to chalk that up to the nature of a subject who strove from the early sixties on to obfuscate his background and motivations. It's gossipy and deliciously so: how many children by how many different women do you think Bob has? A compelling, engagingly fast-paced and revelatory life, it takes the reader on a journey from Dylan's childhood in a Minnesota mining town to the status he enjoystoday as the leading poet-troubadour of popular song, and one of the most iconic figures of contemporary culture. Even late in life he kept his second marriage secret, and its existence may have never become public is it had not mentioned in his memoir. Dylan's music is profound and that comes through loud and clear.
