Video von Roadkill On The Three-Chord... - Roadkill On The Three-Chord Highway

English, Paperback, 15x23 cm, 228 pages, rare b&w photos; 'Escott mixes careful reporting, a sympathetic viewpoint, with wry and occasionally cutting humor that makes for fast and interesting reading.' - The Boston Globe, reviewing Hank Williams: The Biography Profiles of country, pop, and rockabilly stars, including Roy Orbison, Wanda Jackson, and Jim Reeves Lavishly illustrated with wonderful period photographs ROADKILL ON THE THREE-CHORD HIGHWAY is a new collection of Collin Escott's wonderful biographies of the legends of rock, rockabilly, and country. Escott is world renowned for telling the stories of not only the major stars, but also the Tex Nobodies that populate the back alleys of American music. For every struggling singer or songwriter who breaks through, there are hundreds more who labor in the shadows, victims of bad luck, bad timing, or themselves. It's the real stories, not the publicists' confections, that concern Colin Escott. We hear Perry Como's story in his own words: It wasn't all smooth. We learn about the astonishing twists and turns in Roy Orbison's life and the stories behind the songs we know so well. And we go down with Vernon Oxford, the last great honky tonk singer, who singer, who came to Nashville just a little too late. These are stories for anyone who loves what Escott calls 'little songs from great sorrows.' They will fascinate even the most casual fan of popular music, and they're told here in sympathetic, engaging, and illuminating prose.
