All Music Guide's Stephen Thomas Erlewine has written, "Even when he was out of fashion in the '80s and '90s, it was clear that Bowie was one of the most influential musicians in rock, for better or worse." In this comprehensive analysis of David Bowie's career, author James Perone examines the many identities and styles Bowie has developed over the years, and in so doing provides a stunning chronicle of creativity at work. This long overdue investigation lets Bowie's artistry speak for itself. After a biographical introduction, chronologically arranged chapters discuss the singer's fascinating--and iconoclastic--body of work. A discography and annotated bibliography conclude the book.

Ice Cube is one of the most influential figures in the history of rap and hip-hop. Here, author Gail Hilson Woldu examines the entirety of Ice Cube's recorded work alongside his artistic collaborations in film. Best known for the vitriol of his "angry black man" recordings of the late 1980s and mid 1990s, Ice Cube epitomizes the genre often referred to as gangsta rap. Much of his music from these years is focused on the disturbing realities of life in black urban ghettos, and as a result it chronicles such complex and controversial issues as racial stereotypes, street gangs, racial profiling, "black on black" crime, teen pregnancy, absentee fathers, and male-female relationships. Since moving away from music to some extent, Ice Cube has gone on to star in the Barbershop and Are We There Yet? film series. Woldu looks back over all of Ice Cube's work to date and considers his impact and his legacy in music and popular culture at large.

By Anthony Haselton COMING SOON ISBN: 978-1-84747-166-6 Published: 2007 Pages: 80 Key Themes: brain injury, schizophrenia, music, football Description 'A Modern Medical Miracle' is split into two parts. Part one tells of how Anthony battled against a brain tumour from the age of 12. The story is set against the backdrop of the punk-rock revolution of the time and the fortunes of Everton Football Club, who play just a stone's throw from Walton Hospital where Anthony received life saving, life changing brain surgery. Anthony's life takes on a surreal, almost dreamlike quality as his mind is shaped by images of Everton players and the words of Johnny Rotten and Joe Strummer. Inspired by his combined love of football and music, this passion proves to be not only his inspiration but his salvation too. Part Two, The Big S, carries on the story as Anthony develops schizophrenia and uses writing and the English language to stay sane, fighting with the weapons of love, faith and hope. As his love for football and music brings an uncanny magic into his life, depression is a demon destroying his dreams. Discovering the double edged sword of the Word he defeats his demons and finds a heaven in the hell of the modern world, seeing the light at the end of his tunnel illuminating the way. About the Author It was on a midsummer evening in 1964 that Anthony Haselton was born into a mad world of mods and rockers and English moptops invading America. It could be that his life is 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'. The Beatles and The Beano, which his mother taught him to read with, combined to make the sixties an exceedingly happy period. The next six years were as normal as any healthy child's until Anthony was struck down with a brain tumour. His fight to defeat his illness and the subsequent schizophrenia he developed in adult years, shaped his writing style. Educated at Selwyn Jones High School and St. Helens College, he has written for local newspapers, had a regular page in the award winning Everton FC programme of 1986-87 and contributes to Everton's fanzine 'When Skies Are Grey'. Anthony was the editor of a hospital magazine for seven years and is a Spotlight poet, appearing in 'A Sense Of Perception' (1988) and 'Enigma Of Life' (2002). Anthony now works trying to reduce stigma regarding mental illness in mainstream society, this is the reasoning behind writing 'A Modern Medical Miracle'. Book Extract "Brothers, I am born again! And what follows is my testimony, a story of what I believe to be a Christian healing, set against the backdrop of the revival of Everton Football Club in the 1976-77 football season and the infamous rise of the musical punk rock movement. The blues of Everton were nearing their 100th anniversary, having formed as a methodist church team, St Domingo's, in 1878. They had been an important part of my life since my arrival into this mad world via the bedroom at 130 Legh Street in 1964 as mods and rockers fought on the beaches of Britain and The Beatles were conquering America, bringing a massive swing in cultural and social ways of life both here and over the pond. At home my dad was teaching me to speak, "Say E-ver-ton." I had no chance, my grandad was even more fanatical in things Everton. Away from the blues he had a ritual with all grandchildren of which I was the fourth. On arrival at Harvey Avenue the baby was duly placed under the sideboard. I repeat, I had no chance!

"David Bowie has always been a consummate mythmaker, and this fascinating anthology captures him at his most mysterious and mischievous, laying himself bare and building walls around himself in the same mercurial instant." —Peter Doggett, author of The Man Who Sold the World: David Bowie & the '70s David Bowie has been one of pop music's greatest interviewees since January 1972, when he famously told Melody Maker he was gay. Although he wasn't yet a big star, it was a groundbreaking moment. And over the years, Bowie has failed to give an uninteresting interview. He has been honest, declining to be coy about his ambitions, his private life, and even his developing ennui. Bowie on Bowie presents some of the best interviews Bowie has granted in his near five-decade career. Each interview traces a new step in his unique journey, successively freezing him in time as young novelty hit-maker, hairy hippie, Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, the Thin White Duke, plastic soul player, fragile Germanic exile, godfather of the New Romantics, eighties sell-out, Tin Machinist, and, finally, permanently, artistically reborn beloved elder statesman of challenging popular music. Sean Egan has interviewed members of the Beatles, the Velvet Underground, the Who, the Kinks, the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, and many others. His books include Keith Richards on Keith Richards, The Rough Guide to the Rolling Stones, The Mammoth Book of the Beatles, and Jimi Hendrix and the Making of Are You Experienced.
