The author of the critically acclaimed Elvis Presley biography Last Train to Memphis brings us the life of Sam Phillips, the visionary genius who singlehandedly steered the revolutionary path of Sun Records. The music that he shaped in his tiny Memphis studio, with artists as diverse as Elvis Presley, Ike Turner, Howlin' Wolf, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Johnny Cash, introduced a sound that had never been heard before. He brought forth a singular mix of black and white voices passionately proclaiming the vitality of the American vernacular tradition while at the same time declaring, once and for all, a new, integrated musical day. With extensive interviews and firsthand personal observations extending over a 25-year period with Phillips, along with wide-ranging interviews with nearly all the legendary Sun Records artists, Guralnick gives us an ardent, unrestrained portrait of an American original as compelling in his own right as Mark Twain, Walt Whitman, or Thomas Edison.

pGuinness Book of World Records, overnight they called me a freak. They called me a homosexual. They called me a child molester. They said I bleached my skin. They made everything to turn the public against me." (Michael Jackson) In the majority of cases, a pop or rock fan who is asked about a particular celebrity will answer in unambiguous terms. Artists such as Elvis Presley engage the public in their entirety, their personae fully revealed as onstage and offstage personalities. Most artists are judged by what they say of themselves and their art, and fans can express in distinct terms why they like or do not like them or their music. Michael Jackson, on the other hand, projected a different sort of fascination to the global public, based upon his many contradictions and hidden characteristics. The unorthodox artist was described by one author as "paradoxical and incomplete", and while audiences attended a Presley event to revel in a known quantity, Jackson's charisma depended in part on the audience's need "to understand, or fill in the knowledge that was missing". If anything the mystical, half-revealed Jackson was as strong an attraction as his more forceful and renowned colleagues, for by the end of his career he was "arguably the most notable popular culture virtuoso of the late 20th century" and had set almost every record known to his industry, all in an age that featured not only Presley but The Beatles, Barbara Streisand, and other superstars. 1.

I grew up thinking art was pictures until I got into music and found I was an artist and didn't paint. (Chuck Berry) "If you tried to give rock and roll another name, you might call it Chuck Berry." (John Lennon) The origins of rock music claim several founding fathers, with each perspective holding merit and directly contributing to the golden age to follow in rock music. While Elvis Presley remains perhaps the most high-profile figure of early rock, he was not truly a member of the first generation. If anything he was a product of a slightly older wave of groundbreaking artists. Appearing immediately before Presley's rise was Texan Buddy Holly, whose borrowings from driving black rhythms blended with white lyrics to make him one of the first successful crossover artists. However, perhaps the first and ultimately the most successful of this category - those artistic explorers who most effectively blurred racial and political lines through their music - was Chuck Berry: an African-American blues and country singer/guitarist/songwriter. He perfectly blended the prevailing forms of his generation to attract both black and white audiences with a virtuosity and originality that set the bar for the next half century. Unlike Presley, and more in the manner of Holly, Chuck Berry wrote his own classics. And he thrived as both a composer and lyricist based on his early love of poetry and hard blues, jump blues jazzy ballads, boogie-woogie, and hillbilly music. 1. Language: English.
