The Gospel According to Luke

Steve Lukather, Paul Rees
Authors:
Steve Lukather, Paul Rees

The Gospel According To Luke is the outrageous and hilarious autobiography of Steve Lukather, leader of the multi-million selling band Toto and guitarist for an extraordinary array of stellar talents such as Miles Davis, Paul, George and Ringo of the Beatles, Elton John, Joni Mitchell, Barbara Streisand, Don Henley and Michael Jackson.The book will tell how Lukather and a group of high school friends formed Toto in 1977 and went on to sell more than 40 million records worldwide, cresting with the Toto IV album of 1982 which spawned such mega-global hits as 'Rosanna', 'Africa' and the Lukather-penned 'I Won't Hold You Back'. Toto IV also won them six Grammys. The book will take them right up to the present - overcoming scandals and tragedies to come back with a critically-acclaimed and US Billboard charting album in 2015 whilst their classic singles clocked up a combined total of more than 250 million views on YouTube.However, The Gospel According to Luke will at the same time navigate a much broader and richer landscape. It will share an outspoken, devil-may-care spirit and, like erstwhile Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham's hugely acclaimed Stoned autobiography, it will take the reader behind the VIP curtain of rock and pop stardom. And like Martin Scorcese's high-profile TV series Vinyl, The Gospel According to Luke will recount the vibrant, thrilling and frequently lurid history of a vanished golden age of the music business. The principal setting is the Los Angeles hit factories of the 1970s and '80s when Lukather was the superstar session player of the era, reaching the apex on Michael Jackson's Thriller blockbuster, for which Lukather and his fellow Toto members were the house band, and also co-writers on 'Human Nature'. In The Gospel According To Luke, Lukather will lift the lid on what really went on behind the closed studio doors. His account will be full of remarkable insights - both affectionate and scabrous - into the unique creative processes and peccadillos of some of the most legendary names in music. It will reveal how Barbra Streisand bullied her producers, why not to invite Elton John to a party and the means by which Miles Davis could revive a dead dog. Lukather's extraordinary tale will also encompass the dark side of the American Dream: from the crashing and burning of Michael Jackson to the death in 1992 of Toto drummer and West Coast legend Jeff Porcaro from a heart seizure at just 38.The book will draw on Lukather's comprehensive diaries, which account for every session he has played on, and personal archive [including hundreds of previously unpublished personal photographs from the same sessions]. The book will include supporting quotes from such friends and contemporaries of Lukather's as George Clooney, Eddie Van Halen, Ringo Starr and others.

Under the Big Black Sun

John Doe, Tom DeSavia
Authors:
John Doe, Tom DeSavia

Under the Big Black Sun explores the nascent Los Angeles punk rock movement and its evolution to hardcore punk as it's never been told before. Authors John Doe and Tom DeSavia have woven together an enthralling story of the legendary West Coast scene from 1977-1982 by enlisting the voices of people who were there. The book shares chapter-length tales from the authors along with personal essays from famous (and infamous) players in the scene. Additional authors include: Exene Cervenka (X), Henry Rollins (Black Flag), Mike Watt (The Minutemen), Jane Wiedlin and Charlotte Caffey (Go-Go's), Dave Alvin (The Blasters), Chris D. (The Flesh Eaters), Robert Lopez (The Zeros, El Vez), Jack Grisham (T.S.O.L.), Teresa Covarrubias (The Brat), as well as scenesters and journalists Pleasant Gehman, Kristine McKenna, and Chris Morris. Through interstitial commentary, John Doe "narrates" this journey through the land of film noir sunshine, Hollywood back alleys, and suburban sprawl, the place where he met his artistic counterparts Exene, DJ Bonebrake, and Billy Zoom and formed X, the band that became synonymous with, and in many ways defined, L.A. punk.Focusing on punk's evolutionary years, Under the Big Black Sun shares stories of friendship and love, ambition and feuds, grandiose dreams and cultural rage, all combined with the tattered, glossy sheen of pop culture weirdness that epitomized the operations of Hollywood's underbelly. Readers will travel to the clubs that defined the scene, as well as to the street corners, empty lots, apartment complexes, and squats that served as de facto salons for the musicians, artists, and fringe players that hashed out what would become punk rock in Los Angeles.L.A. punk was born from rock 'n' roll, from country and blues and Latin music, the true next step in the evolution of rock music. It was born of art, culture, political, and economic frustration. It spoke of a Los Angeles that existed when regionalism still reigned in the USA. It sounded like Los Angeles.For the first time, the stories and photos from this now-fabled era are presented from those on the front lines. Stories that most have never heard about the art that was born under the big black sun

Authors:
Troy Cassar-Daley, Tom Gilling

A born storyteller, Troy Cassar-Daley has at last turned his talent to sharing his own inspiring life.'Troy's achievements are many, and perhaps the finest may be his ability to make us listen to his heart.' Joy McKeanFor the first time, Troy talks about his early life - how his parent's divorce changed things for him, about missing his Dad and growing up in Grafton surrounded by the warmth and love of his mother, Irene, his Nan and Pop and his extended Indigenous family. A larrikin at heart, Troy includes all the highs and lows on his path to stardom: the thrill of performing on stage at the Tamworth Music Festival with Jimmy Little when he was just 15; the excitement of heading off on tour with Brian Young and then discovering just how lonely life on the road could be; his first record deal; playing with the greats - Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard and Slim Dusty; his first album Beyond the Dancing, which blended his indigenous heritage with his rural background; meeting the woman who would steal his heart; recording in Nashville; and, finally, releasing True Believer, the album that really launched his career. The multiple Golden Guitar, APRA, ARIA and Deadlys winner also lets us in on some of the life lessons he learned the hard way, lessons that kept this prodigiously talented Aussie on the straight and narrow (most of the time). Things I Carry Around, is the warm, genuine, and inspiring story of a young indigenous Australian who had a dream and turned that dream into reality. 'Troy's a true gentleman, warm and genuine, always a pleasure to be around. He sings straight from his heart and straight from the heart of his country.' Paul Kelly

Since 1963, The Rolling Stones have been recording and touring, selling more than 200 million records worldwide.

Organized chronologically by album, this massive, 704-page hardcover begins with their 1963 eponymous debut album recorded over five days at the Regent Studio in London; through their collaboration with legendary producer Jimmy Miller in the ground-breaking albums from 1968 to 1973; to their later work with Don Was, who has produced every album sinceVoodoo Lounge. Packed with more than 500 photos, All the Songs is also filled with stories fans treasure, such as how the mobile studio they pioneered was featured in Deep Purple's classic song "Smoke on the Water" or how Keith Richards used a cassette recording of an acoustic guitar to get the unique riff on "Street Fighting Man."

Tavis Smiley, David Ritz

Michael Jackson's final months were like the rest of his short and legendary life: filled with deep lows and soaring highs, a constant hunt for privacy, and the pressure and fame that made him socially fragile and almost - ultimately - unable to live.With the insight and compassion that he brought to his bestselling telling of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s final year, Tavis Smiley provides a glimpse into the superstar's life in this emotional, honest, yet celebratory book. Readers will witness Jackson's campaign to recharge his career - hiring and firing managers and advisors, turning to and away from family members, fighting depression and drug dependency - while his one goal remained: to mount the most spectacular series of shows the world had ever seen. BEFORE YOU JUDGE ME is a humanizing look at Jackson's last days.

Who Is That Man?

David Dalton
Authors:
David Dalton

Few American artists are as important, beloved and endlessly examined as Bob Dylan, yet he remains something of an enigma. This kaleidoscopic biography, full of the voices of Dylan's family, friends, and fellow travelers through the 60s, offers an entirely fresh narrative perspective, fusing rock star bio with an examination of the music and the zeitgeist that he so mysteriously captured.For almost half a century, Bob Dylan has been a primary catalyst in rock's shifting sensibilities. He has starred in and been the subject of major films; his work is taught in over 200 college courses; and few American artists are as important, beloved, and endlessly examined as he is. Yet, he remains something of an enigma. Who, we ask, is the "real" Bob Dylan? Is he Bobby Zimmerman yearning to escape Hibbing, Minnesota, or the Woody Guthrie wannabe spending the 1960s playing Greenwich Village haunts? The protest poet, the Factory fixture, or the born-again Christian denying the powers of prophecy everyone attributes to him? The events of his life alone do not tell us all we want to know.Now, David Dalton, author, screenwriter, journalist, and founding editor of Rolling Stone, paints a revealing portrait of the rock icon that will be a must-have for his legions of fans. Guided by Dalton's masterful hand, this book will follow Dylan's imaginative life, integrating actual events from his life, Dylan's words, and those of the people who know him most intimately. Drawing upon extensive interviews with Dylan's friends, family, and fellow eyewitnesses to the zeitgeist-including Joan Baez, Keith Richards, Bobby Neuwirth, Kris Kristofferson, Suze Rotolo, Clive Davis, Tom Petty, and others-this book will provide a new perspective on the man, the myth, and the musical era that forged them both.
