Most widely held works by Donvé Lee
Syd Kitchen : scars that shine by Donvé Lee( )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Skollie, saint, scholar, hippest of hippies, imperfect musician with a perfect imagination, Syd Kitchen was, like all great artists, born to enrich his art and not himself. Plagued by drugs, alcohol and depression, too much of an outlaw to be embraced by record companies, he frequently sold his furniture to cover production costs of his albums, seduced fans at concerts and music festivals worldwide with his dazzling "Afro-Saxon" mix of folk, jazz, blues and rock interspersed with marvelously irreverent banter, and finally became the subject of several compelling documentaries, one of which - Fool in a Bubble - premiered in New York in 2010. Syd Kitchen - Scars That Shine is a bittersweet romp through the life of a troubled musical genius. Although Syd passed away in 2011, the author Donvé Lee climbs inside his head as he lies on his deathbed, and lets his life story unfold in his uniquely irreverent voice and the voices of a motley collection of friends and family
