"FAME Publishing first opened in 1959 and produced hits for great musicians like Etta James, Clarence Carter and Aretha Franklin. Not long after, the city Of Muscle Shoals became known as the "Hit Recording Capital of the World." FAME was the foundation that produced Muscle Shoals Sound Studio, the Nutthouse and Sundrop Sound at Single Lock Records-- studios that gave voice to artists like Drive-By Truckers, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit and John Paul White. A new generation, including the Pollies and Doc Dailey & the Magnolia Devil, today carries the tradition of great music. Through extensive research, and enriched with interviews from those who lived it, local author Blake Ells chronicles the epic story that started with FAME." --Back cover.

Bars, Blues, and Booze collects lively bar tales from the intersection of black and white musical cultures in the South. Many of these stories do not seem dignified, decent, or filled with uplifting euphoria, but they are real narratives of people who worked hard with their hands during the week to celebrate the weekend with music and mind-altering substances. These are stories of musicians who may not be famous celebrities but are men and women deeply occupied with their craft—professional musicians stuck with a day job. The collection also includes stories from fans and bar owners, people vital to shaping a local music scene. The stories explore the “crossroads,” that intoxicated intersection of spirituality, race, and music that forms a rich, southern vernacular. In personal narratives, musicians and partygoers relate tales of narrow escape (almost getting busted by the law while transporting moonshine), of desperate poverty (rat-infested kitchens and repossessed cars), of magic (hiring a root doctor to make a charm), and loss (death or incarceration). Here are stories of defiant miscegenation, of forgetting race and going out to eat together after a jam, and then not being served. Assorted boasts of improbable hijinks give the “blue collar” musician a wild, gritty glamour and emphasize the riotous freedom of their fans, who sometimes risk the strong arm of southern liquor laws in order to chase the good times.

Long known as "the Shoals," Muscle Shoals saw its formal birth as an incorporated city in 1923. It really sprang to life in 1933, when the Tennessee Valley Authority took shape on the Tennessee River and became the nation's largest public power company. The construction crew for the Wilson Dam and power plant was one of the region's first racially integrated workforces. Some truly influential figures of the 20th century came to Muscle Shoals to witness firsthand what was unfolding in this tiny corner of the world. Thomas Edison and Henry Ford found themselves drawn to Wilson Dam and the nitrate plants in the early 1920s, as did the French existentialist Jean-Paul Sartre. At one time, Muscle Shoals was regarded as the hit recording capital of the world. FAME studio musicians referred to as the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section gained notoriety as a result of the studio's success and are part of the legacy of the Muscle Shoals sound.

Die Autobiographie des großen Neil Young »Down by the River«, »Heart of Gold«, »Hey, Hey, My My« – mit seinen Songs hat Neil Young die Herzen ganzer Generationen von Musikliebhabern erobert. Ein vielseitiger Künstler par excellence, ist er bis heute einer der bekanntesten und beliebtesten Musiker der Welt, der nun seine seit Langem erwartete Autobiographie vorlegt.Neil Young ist eine herausragende Figur in der Geschichte des Rock’n’Roll und der Popkultur der letzten vier Jahrzehnte. Seit seinen frühen Tagen in den 1960ern mit Buffalo Springfield, bahnbrechenden Soloalben wie »After the Gold Rush« und »Harvest«, Megaselleralben mit Crosby, Stills & Nash bis hin zu seiner Inthronisierung als Pate des Grunge, ist Neil Young der Inbegriff des kompromisslosen Künstlers, der allein seinem Herzen und Verstand folgt.In seiner Autobiographie gibt er Einblick in sein Privatleben und die Wurzeln seiner musikalischen Kreativität. Das Buch ist eine Reise, die von den schneebedeckten Landschaften Ontarios über die LSD-Boulevards im Los Angeles der 1960er-Jahre bis hin zum heutigen paradiesischen Rückzugsort Hawaii führt. Verblüffend offen und witzig, setzt Neil Youngs Autobiographie neue Maßstäbe in der Musikgeschichtsschreibung. »Neil Young hat stets die ungezügelte Leidenschaft eines Künstlers an den Tag gelegt, der weiß, dass man sich ständig neu erfinden muss, um nicht auszubrennen. Aus diesem Grund ist er bis heute einer der bedeutendsten Künstler der Rock’n’Roll-Ära.« Eddie Vedder, Pearl Jam
