Ponies & rainbows : the life of James Kirkwood by Sean Egan( Book )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Kirkwood is the forgotten man of American letters In 1975, he had two shows playing on Broadway, while his latest novel Some Kind of Hero saw reviewers comparing him to Saul Bellow and Joseph Heller. One of those shows - A Chorus Line - won him a Pulitzer Prize for his co-writing contribution and went on to become the biggest stage phenomenon in history. Yet today his work is largely out of print and his name rarely mentioned. Kirkwood led a life that was as gripping as any of his novels or plays. The son of silent screen stars, he grew up in Hollywood surrounded by celebrities and opulence before his parents went broke. His childhood was littered with trauma, including finding the dead body of his mother's fiancé when he was twelve. Before writing, his professional life encompassed the coast guard, stand-up comedy and soap opera acting. His private life was equally varied, involving loving sexual relationships with both men and women. Sean Egan - author of seventeen books - took over seven years to write this definitive biography, interviewing more than sixty of Kirkwood's family, lovers, colleagues, friends and adversaries in the process. In a sweeping narrative that takes in Hollywood in the Twenties, the boom era of New York nightclubs in the Forties and the Eighties AIDS holocaust, Ponies & Rainbows both details a remarkable life and seeks to re-establish an even more remarkable talent

Mammoth Book of Freddie Mercury and Queen by Sean Egan( Book )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Queen musical We Will Rock. You has been playing to packed houses in London's West End for years and early 2014 will see the release of a major Hollywood biopic starring Sacha Baron-Cohen about mercurial Queen frontman Freddie Mercury. While a number of groups may have had a go at rock, prog rock, opera, funk, pop, and twenties pastiche, few have done so on a single album. From the stadium anthem We Will Rock You to the Fifties retro of Crazy Little Thing Called Love and the slick synth-pop of I Want to Break Free to the unlikeliest Number One ever, the category-defying Bohemian Rhapsody, with its unlikely blend of strutting rock and operatic intrigue, Queen was a band like no other. Egan, as he has done in Mammoth Books on The Beatles, Bob Dylan and, most recently, The Rolling Stones presents a bumper selection of writing, both old and new on Mercury, bassist John Deacon, guitarist Brian May, and drummer Roger Taylor: features, interviews, reviews, and opinion pieces. It is llustrated with a 16-page, full-color plate section

Bowie on Bowie( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bowie on Bowie presents some of the best interviews David Bowie has granted in his near five-decade career. Each featured interview traces a new step in his unique journey, successively freezing him in time in all of his various incarnations, from a young novelty hit-maker and Ziggy Stardust to plastic soul player, 1980s sell-out, and the artistically reborn and beloved elder statesman of challenging popular music. In all of these iterations he is remarkably articulate and also preternaturally polite as almost every interviewer remarks upon his charm. The features in this book come from outlets both prestigious?Melody Maker, MOJO, New Musical Express, Q, Rolling Stone? and less well-known?t he Drummer, Guitar, Ikon, Mr. Showbiz?but no matter the renown of the magazine, newspaper, or website, Bowie lets us approach the nerve center of his notoriously creative output
