Dave Thompson, author of Hearts of Darkness, visited WJBE in Knoxville, Tenn., to talk about his book. He gives us a quick insight into what readers can expect when they read Hearts of Darkness, listen to the amazing interview down below!

Onstage and Backstage 

About the Book
Hearts of Darkness is the story of a generation's coming of age through the experiences of its three most atypical pop stars. James Taylor, Jackson Browne, and Cat Stevens could never have been considered your typical late-sixties songwriters – self-absorbed and self-composed, all three eschewed the traditional means of delivering their songs, instead turning its process inward. The result was a body of work that stands among the most profoundly personal art ever to translate into an international language, and a sequence of songs – from “Sweet Baby James” and “Carolina in My Mind,” to “Jamaica Say You Will” and “These Days,” to “Peace Train” and “Wild World” – that remain archetypes not only of what the critics called the singer-songwriter movement, but of the human condition itself.

Denise McKinney, author of Morrissey FAQ All That's Left To Know About This Charming Man talks with Patrick Phillips of "Pop Culture Tonight" about what readers can learn about Morrissey in the book.

Onstage and Backstage

 

About the Book
Morrissey FAQ will put to rest any questions and doubts about the singer known around the world for his meaningful lyrics and biting wit. Readers will also learn about his passions, his weaknesses, the people who love him, the people who hate him, and the people who want to be him. Not since Elvis have fans been so obsessed with a singer; they fight with each other at concerts, they rush and tackle him onstage, they dress and act like him, and they even build shrines dedicated to him. Liking Morrissey isn't just liking his music – it's a way of life.
