About the Book
Robert Plant: The Voice That Sailed the Zeppelin follows the iconic singer through his heights of fame with classic rock giant Led Zeppelin, his second life as a multimillion-selling solo artist, and his more idiosyncratic pursuits. A wealth of former associates lend their voices and recollections to an account that steps far beyond the tried and tested tales of Zeppelin's life and times.

Derek Taylor reviews Buck 'Em! The Autobiography of Buck Owens on the Roots Americana Show.

Onstage and Backstage

 

About the Book
Buck 'Em! The Autobiography of Buck Owens is the life story of a country music legend. Born in Texas and raised in Arizona, Buck eventually found his way to Bakersfield, California. Unlike the vast majority of country singers, songwriters, and musicians who made their fortunes working and living in Nashville, the often rebellious and always independent Owens chose to create his own brand of country music some 2,000 miles away from Music City – racking up a remarkable twenty-one number one hits along the way. In the process he helped give birth to a new country sound and did more than any other individual to establish Bakersfield as a country music center.

Buck 'Em! is the fascinating story of the life of country superstar Buck Owens – from the back roads of Texas to the streets of Bakersfield.

Halleonardbooks.com   Amazon      BarnesandNoble    IndieBound

 

Buck Owens (1929–2006) is a country music legend who passed away seven years ago at age 76. His band the Buckaroos had 21 #1 hits on the Billboard country music charts, and he is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Randy Poe is the president of Leiber & Stoller Music Publishing in Los Angeles. He is a Grammy-nominated record producer and an award-winning author whose books include the bestseller Skydog: The Duane Allman Story and Stalking the Red Headed Stranger.

About the Book
The Art of Gothic is the first heavily illustrated tome to explore the aesthetics of this fascinating style in great detail. Previous books on goth have given a bold overview of the music and culture associated with the genre, but this book goes deeper and hones in on the album art, intricate fashions, fantasy illustrations, and more.

She now writes for the UK magazines Metal Hammer and Prog. She is also the author of the book Worldwide Gothic. In addition, Scharf styles gothic photo shoots from jewelry and clothing brands and is recognized worldwide as an expert in the goth aesthetic. Scharf lives in London.

Liisa Ladouceurwrites about music and unpopular culture, and is the author of two books, Encyclopedia Gothica (2011, ECW Press) and How to Kill a Vampire: Fangs in Folklore, Film and Fiction (2013, ECW Press).  She regularly talks about goth music and subculture, vampires and other such dark arts on radio and television, where she delights in bringing shadowy subjects to light, and was the keynote speaker for Popular Culture Association of Canada in 2012.
