Daddy-O : iguana heads & Texas tales by Bob Wade( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Maverick Texas artist Bob Wade has produced a giant sculpture of an iguana, to stand atop the old Lone Star Cafe in New York City; motorized frogs dancing the tango in Dallas; and a Mardi Gras mobile decorated with toy guns (the "Bonnie & Clyde Mobile"). In room-sized installations, velvet paintings of nudes and bullfighters, a football field-sized map of the U.S., a trailer museum stuffed with Texas lore, colorful soft sculptures and experimental photographs and paintings, Wade deflates icons of pop culture and challenges conventional ways of seeing and being. In this irreverent autobiography, a curious mix of bravado and deadpan irony, Wade (writing with Gavin Report reporters Keith and Kent Zimmerman) tells of his El Paso roots, the Berkeley art scene of the mid-1960s, his college teaching career (1966-1977) and his leap into independence. Wade, now a resident of Santa Fe, also recalls his three visits-one at the age of six-with his second cousin, cowboy Roy Rogers. Illustrations."--Publishers Weekly

Now, for the first time, its dynamic lead singer, Philip Bailey, chronicles the group's meteoric rise to stardom and his own professional and spiritual journey.

After being signed by recording titan Clive Davis, EWF went on to produce a remarkable series of platinum and gold albums and to the headline stadiums around the world. Bailey hit the wall due to fame, fortune, and the excesses of global success. In 1983, White abruptly dismantled the band, leaving Bailey and the rest of the members to fend for themselves.
