Hearts of Darkness:James Taylor, Jackson Browne and Cat Stevens The Unlikely Rise of the Singer-Songwriter by Dave Thompson
The cover got to me because I grew up with James Taylor, Jackson Browne,
and Cat Stevens. Love their music even to this day I search for them on XM radio.
Everything from why their names were changed, moving and the instruments they played and the music revolution.
Record companies, the politics and the signing, not knowing what you were really signing away, who you were friends with and the travel, places near and far and who were there. The bands and recollection of things happening all made the music we listen to today.
Love reading about the refeeneces to the Newport Folk Festival as it's only 15 minutes from my house.
Always interesting to find out how and why and who the songs were written about.
Adult book because of the swearing words.
Love the epilogue, tells you where they are now
And the very detailed discography.
