Overview

(Book). Rory Gallagher, Steve Marriott, Rick Derringer and Robin Trower are guitar legends. The glue behind legendary barn-busting, hard-touring outfits like Taste, The Small Faces, Procol Harum and Humble Pie, and later realizing their full potentials as solo artists, this is the first biography group or otherwise of four players whose dedication to music and screaming virtuosity has been inspirational to a generation of fans and admirers. Gallagher, Marriott, Derringer & Trower is a candid look at the lives of four men who combined have sold more than 60,000,000 albums. Each has a unique musical story to tell, from roots in American rhythm and blues and rock 'n' roll to the joys and perils of life on the road, as well as the pitfalls of fame and the music business. What makes their stories unique is their intense dedication to their art and the fact that the careers of these trailblazing guitarists have never been thoroughly covered in print. This is not a linear, album-by-album study. Rather, it is an in-depth conversation with the artists themselves and those closest to them, including band members, management, record executives, road managers, crew, producers, studio engineers, family and friends: fully authorized, revealing and straight from the source. Features fantastic photographs throughout, many never before seen. Dan Muise has spent his entire 25-year career in the music business covering radio, band management, production and record company promotion. He lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

    'Endless arobics for the eyebrows!'

    This is an awesome study into the lives of 4 of my favorite musicians. From the innocent & lively beginnings to the sometimes tragic & heartbreaking endings, this book opens up the careers of these men for observation like no other book I've ever read. Learn how record companies parade these human lives like lambs to the slaughter, only for another dollar! From the sadness of Rory, Steve, & Jimmy Dewar to the victories of Rick & Robin, this book by Dan Muise is solid from cover to cover. A must have for the coffee table, book shelf, easy chair, etc.
