Rhinestone cowboy : an autobiography by Glen Campbell( Book )

8 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 970 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With extraordinary candor intended to set the record straight, one of music's most popular performers tells of his sojourn amid the decadence and destructive trappings of fame - the bucks, the booze, the cocaine, the women - and of the religious awakening and unconditionally loving marriage that literally saved his life. Glen Campbell's boy-next-door persona belied his hedonistic, near-fatal lifestyle. It all started like a dream - the rise from ruthless poverty as one of twelve children in a small Arkansas town and the against-all struggle for stardom, first as a brilliant studio musician (behind artists such as Sinatra, Elvis, Ray Charles, and Nat King Cole), then as a solo performer who in the sixties and seventies sold some 45 million records (including the timeless classics "Wichita Lineman," "Gentle on My Mind," "By the Time I Get to Phoenix," and, of course, "Rhinestone Cowboy") and hosted his own top-rated TV show. Too quickly, though, the dream became a nightmare of mad spending, multiple marriages, and abusive and all-too-public affairs, as well as wildly escalating alcohol and cocaine dependencies that threatened not only his career but his very existence. Now a Christian and in recovery, he has stepped back into the spotlight a whole man at last. With the help of bestselling author Tom Carter, Glen Campbell has given us a book that is both a star-studded show-biz memoir and a spiritual testimony that radiates great faith and emotion. Rhinestone Cowboy is his personal gift of thanks to the millions who have supported him through decades of good times and bad - and to the vast new audience who have grown to know him through his frequent appearances on cable television's 700 Club and other Christian TV shows. "A lot of people are going to be surprised by my story, and I hope that a lot are going to be inspired," Campbell declares. "All I know for sure is that it's time to tell it. And as honestly as I can, that's just what I've gone and done."

By the seat of my pants : my life in country music by Buddy Killen( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the world of country music, Buddy Killen is one of Nashville's biggest starmakers. In the course of his long career, beginning in the 1950s and continuing to the present day, he has worked with the likes of Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Elvis Presley, Dolly Parton, George Jones, Roger Miller, Billy Ray Cyrus, and many, many more. Now the man known as "the Quincy Jones of country music" tells all about his life and career in a personal and revealing story in the tradition of Ralph Emery's best-selling Memories. It is a rare behind-the-scenes look at the country music industry from someone who has seen the music business from the front offices to the back stages. Country music is currently estimated to be a $3-billion-a-year business, with record sales topping $700 million annually. Buddy Killen, former owner of Tree International, is one of the megastars of that industry, having written, published, and produced more hit songs than anyone in Nashville. From publishing Elvis Presley's first million-dollar record, "Heartbreak Hotel," to signing up a fourteen-year-old Dolly Parton, to producing the records of such diverse recording stars as the Allman Brothers, Joe Tex, and Exile, Killen has seen, heard, and done it all. Killen's story begins in a rat-infested shack in deep-Depression rural South, where Buddy was one of a family of eight children. After early years of struggle, he landed a job as a touring musician, playing with a number of country music's great performers, including one of the most famous and influential personalities in country music history, Hank Williams. Looking back on a career spanning over forty years, Killen goes behind the myths to explore the truth of legends, revealing the secret and personal behavior of some of country music's most renowned greats, past and present. Like a Who's Who of contradictions of private acts and public image, Killen reveals the on-stage versus back-stage personalities of some of country's most beloved legends
