9780739078587: Abbey Road to Ziggy Stardust: Off the Record With the Beatles, Bowie, Elton & So Much More

Turn on any classic rock station and you ll soon hear a song that Ken Scott worked on. As one of the pre-eminent recording engineers and producers of the 20th century, Ken has garnered Gold, Platinum, and Diamond record sales awards; multiple Grammy nominations; and even a Clio (for his recording of the classic Coke ad I d Like to Teach the World to Sing ). Abbey Road to Ziggy Stardust shares Ken Scott s intimate memories of working with some of the most important artists of the 20th century, while crafting a sound that influenced generations of music makers. Ken's work has left an indelible mark on hundreds of millions of fans with his skilled contributions to Magical Mystery Tour and The White Album. As producer and/or engineer of six David Bowie albums (including the groundbreaking Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars) as well as other timeless classics, the sound Ken crafted has influenced several generations of music makers that continues to this day. Ken captured the sonic signatures of a who's-who of classic rock and jazz acts, including Elton John, Pink Floyd, Jeff Beck, Duran Duran, The Rolling Stones, Lou Reed, America, Devo, Kansas, The Tubes, Missing Persons, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Billy Cobham, Dixie Dregs, and Stanley Clarke. This is his story, complete with funny, provocative, and oh-so-honest tales of the studio, stage, and even an infamous swimming pool incident. Plus, there are never-before-seen photographs and technical details, making Abbey Road to Ziggy Stardust a must for every music fan.

Recensione:

Ken Scott hat zusammen mit den Beatles gearbeitet, mit David Bowie, Lou Reed, den Stones, Elton John, Kansas und Pink Floyd. Zahlreiche der Big Bands" der 1960er und 1970er Jahre verewigten sich auf seinen Bandmaschinen im legendären Abbey Road Studio. Durch die Zusammenarbeit mit Bobby Owsinski ist ein unterhaltsames Buch entstanden, das jetzt im Alfred Music Publishing Verlag erschienen ist. Geboten werden zahlreiche Details zum Thema Aufnahmetechnik und ebenso lesenswerte Anekdoten rund um die Stars von gestern. Dabei ist die gelungene inhaltliche Mischung dieses Buches durchaus auch für Musikliebhaber verständlich, die noch nicht an der Synchronisation zweier Bandmaschinen verzweifelt sind. Für einen ersten Überblick empfiehlt sich das kurze Video zum Buch. Erschienen Alfred Music Publishing in englischer Sprache. (Christoph Rocholl, tools4music 4.2012)

Der Name Ken Scott ist sicherlich nicht allen geläufig, die gerne Musik hören. Allerdings werden alle, die sich etwas aus guter Musik machen, auf alle Fälle mal in den Genuss von Musik gekommen sein, die von Scott produziert wurde. Unter den Musikern, mit denen der Brite in den letzten vierzig Jahren gearbeitet hat, finden sich The Beatles, David Bowie, Elton John, Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, Supertramp und Lou Reed. Nicht zuletzt durch seine Arbeit wurden Alben wie The White Album oder Ziggy Stardust zu Riesenerfolgen. In der Autobiographie Abbey Road to Ziggy Stardust nimmt Scott den Leser in eine Welt, zu der man nur selten Zugang hat. Man bekommt eine Innensicht auf die Entstehung von Musik fernab von Promotion, Marketing und der glamourösen Oberfläche, mit der man sonst konfrontiert ist. Gleichzeitig bekommt man einen sehr detaillierten Einblick in die Geschichte der Musik-Produktion, von analogen Studioaufnahmen bis hin zur digitalen Revolution hat Scott im Laufe seiner über vierzigjährigen Karriere den Fortschritt in der Technik aus erster Hand mitgemacht. Das Wunderbare: Die teilweise sehr technischen Details sind auch für Laien verständlich, sind aber so gut vom Rest abgetrennt, dass man sie auch überspringen kann. Scotts Memoiren zu lesen ist unterhaltsam, kann aber auch in viel Arbeit ausarten, denn man bekommt oft Lust, sich bestimmte Songs und Alben anzuhören, um zu verstehen, wovon er genau schreibt. Gleichzeitig weiß Scott eine Menge Anekdoten und kleiner Geschichten rund um die Musiker zu erzählen, mit denen er gearbeitet hat, u.a. die Beatles, George Harrison, David Bowie, Elton John, Supertramp und einige Jazz-Legenden wie z.B. Billy Cobham. Es geht in den Anekdoten auch immer wieder um Befindlichkeiten, Freundschaften, persönliche Schicksale und Niederlagen, und natürlich auch um Erfolgsgeschichten. Allerdings geht es hier nie um Bloßstellung einzelner Personen, Scott ist weit weg davon, schmutzige Wäsche zu waschen oder über Leute herzuziehen, mit denen er schlechte Erfahrungen gemacht hat (und davon tauchen viele in diesem Buch auf). Selbst der rechtliche Streit mit dem frühen Management von Bowie wird beleuchtet, ohne aber gehässig zu werden. Alles in Allem ist das Buch für alle die gedacht, die Musik gerne aus einer anderen Sicht kennenlernen wollen, nämlich aus der Sicht der Produzierenden. Es räumt mit der naiven Sicht auf, dass eine Band ins Studio geht und einfach ein Album aufnimmt. Es öffnet den Blick dafür, wie viel harte Arbeit hinter der Produktion eines Musik-Albums und wie viele Überlegungen manchmal hinter einem einzigen Songs stecken können und nicht zuletzt bekommt man ein Gefühl dafür, wie wichtig die Arbeit der Menschen ist, die hinter den Kulissen arbeiten und von denen man selten etwas hört. Ein absolutes Muss für Musikliebhaber. (musicheadquarter.de)
