Timothy Leary : a biography by Robert Greenfield( Book )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and Italian and held by 1,205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first major biography of one of the most controversial figures in postwar America. To a generation in full revolt against any form of authority, "Tune in, turn on, drop out" became a mantra, and its popularizer, Dr. Timothy Leary, a guru. A charismatic and brilliant psychologist, Leary became first intrigued and then obsessed by the effects of psychedelic drugs in the 1960s while teaching at Harvard, where he not only encouraged but instituted their experimental use among students and faculty. What began as research into human consciousness turned into a mission to alter consciousness itself. Leary transformed himself from serious social scientist into counterculture shaman, embodying the idealism and the hedonism of an age of revolutionary change.--Publisher description
Anyone who had a heart : my life and music by Burt Bacharach( Book )

15 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 1,053 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the past six decades, Burt Bacharach's songwriting has touched millions of listeners all over the world. Here, Bacharach steps out from behind the music to give an honest, engaging look at his life--from his work with Hal David, Dionne Warwick, Elvis Costello and many others, to his tumultuous marriages and the devastating fate of his beloved daughter. Growing up in Forest Hills, NY, during the 1930s and 1940s, Bacharach fell in love with music after sneaking into a Manhattan club to see the legendary Dizzy Gillespie. After a stint in the Korean War, he toured the world with Marlene Dietrich, wrote an endless string of hits, scored numerous Hollywood films, married movie star Angie Dickinson, and composed the music for the Broadway hit Promises, Promises. While he soared professionally, Bacharach's private life was dominated by the never-ending search for love--and the heartbreak that comes when it is lost--which is reflected in his greatest songs. -- From publisher's description

Told by a dazzling chorus of more than a hundred voices - from Keith Richards, Jerry Garcia, Ken Kesey, and Eric Clapton to managers, agents, headwaiters, and, above all, the man himself - Bill Graham Presents offers fascinating firsthand accounts of how Graham launched stars like Janis Joplin, Otis Redding, the Jefferson Airplane, and the Grateful Dead; how he produced landmark tours for Bob Dylan and the Band, and Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young; and how his ardent concern for music as a positive social force brought live American rock to the Soviet Union for the first time and was a driving force behind standard-setting benefits like Live Aid and the Amnesty International "Conspiracy of Hope" tour
The last sultan : the life and times of Ahmet Ertegun by Robert Greenfield( Book )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and Japanese and held by 725 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the founder and head of Atlantic Records, Ahmet Ertegun signed and/or recorded many of the greatest musical artists of all time, from Ray Charles to Kid Rock. Working alongside his older brother, Nesuhi, one of the preeminent jazz producers of all time, and the legendary Jerry Wexler, Ertegun transformed Atlantic Records from a small independent record label into a hugely profitable multinational corporation. In successive generations, he also served as a mentor to record-business tyros like Phil Spector, David Geffen, and Lyor Cohen. Brilliant, cultured, and irreverent, Ertegun was as renowned for his incredible sense of personal style and nonstop A-list social life as his work in the studio. Blessed with impeccable taste and brilliant business acumen, he brought rock 'n roll into the mainstream while creating the music that became the sound track for the lives of multiple generations.--From publisher description
Exile on Main Street : a season in hell with the Rolling Stones by Robert Greenfield( Book )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 627 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recorded during the blazing summer of 1971 at Villa Nellcote, Keith Richards' seaside mansion in the south of France, Exile on Main St. has been hailed as one of the Rolling Stones' best albums--and one of the greatest rock records of all time. Yet its improbable creation was difficult, torturous, and at times dangerous. In self-imposed exile, the Stones--along with wives, girlfriends, and a crew of hangers-on--spent their days smoking, snorting, and drinking whatever they could get their hands on. At night, the band descended into the villa's dank basement to lay down tracks. All the while, a variety of celebrities, stumbled through the villa's never-ending party, as did the local drug dealers. Villa Nellcote became the crucible in which creative strife, outsized egos, and all the usual byproducts of the Stones' legendary hedonistic excess fused into something potent, volatile, and enduring.--From publisher description

The Herlihy's are a white, middle class, Catholic family in Chicago. The Taylor's are the family of a black preacher in Mississippi. The eldest Herlihy son (O'Connell) enlists in the Marines on graduation from high school, is sent to Vietnam, and returns as a disillusioned head case. His younger brother (Hamilton), becomes a freedom rider and later, in college, an anti-war activist. Their sister (Stiles), winds up pregnant and unmarried on the streets of Haight Asbury. The black family, active in civil rights protests in the South, moves to Los Angeles where the father (Dutton) is killed during the Watts riots. His son Emmet (Roberts), eventually becomes a bodyguard for Black Panther leader Fred Hampton (Grier). In the end, everyone who survives finds a modicum of happiness. The Herlihy children are reunited at Woodstock and reconcile with their parents who accept their children for what they have become.

The Stones' 1972 tour of the States was perhaps their best? and certainly most notorious? ever. Their previous visit in 1969 had ended in the nightmare of Altamont; now, three years later, they had just recorded their two finest albums, Sticky Fingers and Exile on Main Street, and were musically in their prime? if also personally at their most dissolute and debauched. Robert Greenfield, one of America's finest writers, went along for the ride and came back with a riveting account of high living, excess and rock & roll fury, from the Playboy Mansion to the jail cells of Rhode Island.
