Dangerous curves : the art of the guitar by Darcy Kuronen( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dangerous Curves presents 400 years of guitar design and history, from ornamental Italian and French models of the seventeenth century to the five-neck electric used by the hard-rock band Cheap Trick. The 180 full-color photographs by Carl Tremblay show this most versatile and enduring of musical instruments in all its shapes, sizes, and mutations: jazz behemoths to minimalist "sticks": guitars shaped like bells, frying pans, rocket ships, Cubist sculptures, and functioning crutches: guitars made of chrome steel, aluminum, plastic, graphite, and fiberglass: guitars that stand on pedestals, sit on laps, fit into backpacks, or inflate." "The book features 110 such guitars, each accompanied by a brief discussion of its history and manufacture, while the introductory essay by music historian and guitarist Lenny Kaye places the guitar in context as one of the most potent cultural icons of our time. Included throughout are comments - a number of them written specifically for this book - by some two dozen notable modern guitarists, including Julian Bream, Bonnie Raitt, Pete Townshend, Lucinda Williams, Adrien Belew, Ani DiFranco, and Leo Kottke, which provide a more personal view of the guitar and its music." "Published in conjunction with a major exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Dangerous Curves is an essential work for anyone who has ever experienced the insistent, sometimes troubling, always powerful seduction of a beautifully fashioned and well-played guitar."--Jacket

Max's Kansas City : art, glamour, rock and roll( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At no other time in history has there been a more exciting collision of art, music, and fashion than at Max’s Kansas City from the 1960s to the early 80s. Max’s was the place where you could stare at Andy Warhol, argue about art with Willem de Kooning or John Chamberlain, discuss literature with William S. Burroughs, and get a record deal just by showing up. If downstairs the artists were paying their tabs with original art, upstairs was home to the iconoclastic New York music scene, with performances by Max’s house band, the Velvet Underground; the irreverent New York Dolls; and undiscovered musicians such as Bruce Springsteen, Bob Marley, Blondie, Iggy Pop, and Madonna. A luminous collection of photographs that captures the exuberance and decadence of the coolest club of all time, as well as essays by Lou Reed, Lenny Kaye, Danny Fields, and Steven Watson, Max’s Kansas City is a stun­ning souvenir of one of New York City’s most important cultural landmarks"
