The words and music of Bob Marley by David V Moskowitz( )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Time magazine made Bob Marley's impact strikingly clear when it named Exodus the most important album of the 20th century. Throughout his life and perhaps even more since his death in 1981 at the age of 36, Marley's music has demonstrated a unique ability to combine with almost any cultural setting, no matter how different the elements might at first appear. Through his adaptable, yet enduring musical messages, he represents an especially articulate type of singer-songwriter. Marley released a large quantity of introspective, autobiographical material at the height of his success, and it is thus only in a work such as this - in which the artist is investigated through his recorded output - that one can understand who this great man truly was and what he hoped to achieve through his life and music." "The Words and Music of Bob Marley investigates Marley's creative output chronologically and provides complementary biographical information where it is relevant and helpful. Themes discussed throughout the book include protest, revolution, love, hate, biblical concepts, and Rastafari culture."--Jacket
The words and music of Jimi Hendrix by David V Moskowitz( )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jimi Hendrix burst onto the American music scene at the Monterey Pop Festival in June 1967, captivating the audience with a performance of "Wild Thing." Both musically and literally incendiary, the song ended with Hendrix pouring lighter fluid over his guitar and setting it on fire. Pyrotechnics aside, why is the guitarist still revered 40 years after his death?--

The 100 greatest bands of all time : a guide to the legends who rocked the world( Book )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many rock fans have, at one time or another, ranked their favorite artists in order of talent, charisma, and musical influence on the world as they see it. In this same spirit, author and music historian David V. Moskowitz expands on the concept of "top ten" lists to provide a lineup of the best 100 musical groups from the past 60 years. Since the chosen bands are based on the author's personal taste, this two-volume set provokes discussion of which performers are included and why, offering insights into the surprising influences behind them. From the Everly Brothers, to the Ramones, to Public Enemy, the work covers a wide variety of styles and genres, clearly illustrating the connections between them. Entries focus on the group's history, touring, membership, major releases, selected discography, bibliography, and influence. Contributions from leading scholars in popular music shed light on derivative artists and underscore the overall impact of the performers on the music industry."--Publisher's description
