Over the last 40 years, Visconti has applied his creativity and genius to producing music's most legendary artists-e.g., T. Rex, David Bowie, Thin Lizzy, the Moody Blues, Paul McCartney, and Morrissey (who provides the foreword to Visconti's autobiography). Following his rise to stardom from his humble childhood in Brooklyn, NY, to producing Bowie in London, the narrative reveals a man passionate about music and savvy enough to navigate the turbulent waters of the music industry. At the same time, Visconti's technical knowledge is on full display, treating the reader to an informal history of musical production from analog to digital. Although cataloging the musical past, Visconti's autobiography is a story that is still being written. As producer of the punk band Anti-Flag's album due out in spring 2008, Visconti continues to apply his innovative touch as the architect of the feverishly creative world of rock 'n' roll. Visconti's story should be read by anyone who aspires to work as a producer in the music industry. Recommended for public libraries.-Joshua Finnell, McNeese State Univ.
