9780547896861: Allen Klein: The Man Who Bailed Out The Beatles, Made The Stones, and Transformed Rock & Roll

The story of notorious manager Allen Klein, revealing new, behind-the-scenes details about some of the biggest rock bands in history Allen Klein was like no one the music industry had seen before. The hard-nosed business manager became infamous for allegedly catalyzing the Beatles’ breakup and robbing the Rolling Stones, but the truth is both more complex and more fascinating. As the manager of the Stones and then the Beatles—not to mention Sam Cooke, Donovan, the Kinks, and numerous other performers—he taught young soon-to-be legends how to be businessmen as well as rock stars. In so doing, Klein made millions for his clients and changed music forever. But Klein was as merciless with his clients as he was with anyone else, earning himself an outsize reputation for villainy that has gone unchallenged until now. Through unique, unprecedented access to Klein’s archives, veteran music journalist Fred Goodman tells the full story of how the Beatles broke up, how the Stones achieved the greatest commercial success in rock history, and how the music business became what it is today.

Recensione:

"[A] savvy, evenhanded biography...Goodman makes the nuts and bolts really interesting...Sharp thumbnail sketches of various performers, managers, and record company executives also liven things up." —The Daily Beast

“A compelling work of rock-’n’-roll history." Wall Street Journal

“Fred Goodman makes this world come alive and any fan of rock or insider tales of the music industry will be in heaven reading about this fascinating, troubling character.”

“One highly engrossing read. . . . Fred Goodman is a superb writer and his account here of one of rock ‘n’ roll’s most polarizing figures could not be more readable. [A] triumph.”

—Yahoo! Music

“I want you to read it, so you can see how the world really works. Allen Klein reinvented the wheel.”

—Bob Lefsetz

"Goodman's eye-opening biography of a pivotal insider reveals the record-company machinations behind some of the biggest names from the 1960s." Booklist   "In this balanced, fascinating, and well-written biography, Goodman gives [Allen Klein] credit where it's due." Kirkus, STARRED

Praise for The Mansion on the Hill: Dylan, Young, Geffen, Springsteen, and the Head-On Collision of Rock and Commerce

"A sophisticated moral fable about the collision and fusion of art and commerce ... Rare for a book of this kind, the musical analysis is as astute as the business reporting." — Stephen Holden, New York Times

"This enthralling history of what Goodman, a former editor of Rolling Stone, calls the 'head-on collision of rock and commerce' reads like a modern day Faust, underscoring the compromises of a generation that set out to sell its soul for rock and roll and settled for pawning rock and roll's soul instead." — The New Yorker

"Goodman ... retain's a fan's core passion for the music's emotional and aesthetic power. But unlike most other rock journalists, Goodman is also able to cast a cold, discerning eye on the consolidation of a popular art into an entertainment Leviathan. Goodman's history discards the conventional arc of rock myth, which typically does little more than trace shaky lines of descent from one idol to another: Elvis begat Dylan, who begat Morrison (Jim or Van, take your pick), who begat Springsteen ... Instead, Goodman fastens onto the history of hard-bitten commerce within the rock scene, summoning up some remarkable stories in the process." — Chris Lehmann, Newsday

"Why was rock-and-roll so important? And what caused its downfall? Although Fred Goodman's book, The Mansion on the Hill, focuses on just a handful of rock's most influential figures, it provides some of the best answers anyone has ever offered for these questions... The Mansion on the Hill provides an excellent chronicle of rock's sad metamorphosis from a quasi-moral force into an unstoppable money machine."— New York Times Book Review

"Goodman has been writing about the business of music for 15 years and there is no better investigative reporter in the field." — Seattle Weekly

"A well-reported pageturner." — Philadelphia Inquirer     Praise for Fortune's Fool: Edgar Bronfman Jr., Warner Music, and an Industry in Crisis

"Goodman was able to gain extensive access to Mr. Bronfman and many other important industry executives. His book is full of colorful anecdotes and astonishing quotes from his subjects ... Fortune's Fool is a great read." — New York Times

"[A] savvy, evenhanded biography...Goodman makes the nuts and bolts really interesting...Sharp thumbnail sketches of various performers, managers, and record company executives also liven things up." The Daily Beast

—Judd Apatow “Writing about contracts, percentages and deals can be tedious, but Goodman makes it as exciting as reading about an artist's sex life. The book explodes with inside dope."  —Jim Farber, New York Daily News "In this thoroughly researched biography, Goodman (a former Rolling Stone editor and author of The Mansion on the Hill) gives a much more complete, balanced look at the man . . . who has mostly been viewed as a cartoon villain, and fleshes out his portrait with more nuance and brush strokes than even before. —Houston Press
