9780957144200: Tin Pan Alley: The Rise of Elton John

With first-hand accounts from the people who knew him best, this book details Sir Elton's formative years from training as a classical pianist at the Royal Academy of Music, through his time as a jobbing songwriter in London's Tin Pan Alley and performing his first live gigs, ending with the breakthrough Troubadour concerts in 1970. The author has obtained interviews with everyone from Elton's first piano teacher through to band mates in Bluesology and the Elton John Band, Tony Taupin (brother of Bernie), manager Ray Williams, lyricists Gary Osborne and Bill Martin, songwriter Tony Hatch, music publicist Tony King and many more. They all contribute to a celebration of Elton's journey along the Yellow Brick Road from Tin Pan Alley to the Troubadour. However, Denmark Street, London's Tin Pan Alley, is as much the star of the book as Sir Elton. The author paints a vivid picture of a lost world of sharp music publishers, struggling songwriters and other inhabitants of the street who all came together to socialise and trade songs at the Giaconda and Julie's Cafe. With never-before-seen photos, Tin Pan Alley: The Rise of Elton John is the first book to focus entirely on Elton's formative years up to 1970. For Elton's army of fans and those interested in British musical history, this book is a must. Music business journalist, Nigel Hunter, who worked in Tin Pan Alley himself, provides a funny and touching preface. A really nice touch is that the jacket was designed by David Larkham, who was responsible for the classic Elton John covers such as Goodbye Yellow Brick Road and Captain Fantastic.

Recensione:

'Hayward's engaging biography traces the singer's rise from office boy to pop star in Sixties London.'Daily Telegraph 'Hayward opens the reader's eyes to the early rock'n'roll business models and work ethics. And, truly, it couldn't be more fascinating.' --Louder than War

Descrizione libro Soundcheck Books, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. 234 x 156 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. This unique book focuses on two stars. One is Sir Elton John and his rise from jobbing songwriter to the breakthrough gigs at the LA Troubadour in 1970. The other is Tin Pan Alley itself. Denmark Street, in London?s west end, was home to Britain?s music publishing industry. A world filled with sharp, but often surprisingly generous, publishers and the songwriters who needed to sell them their songs to survive. Elton John and Bernie Taupin found themselves in exactly this position before success came knocking. Author and Elton John fan, Keith Hayward, seamlessly weaves these two worlds together by interviewing those that were there. Band mates in Bluesology and the Elton John Band, Tony Taupin (brother of Bernie), manager Ray Williams, lyricists Gary Osborne and Bill Martin, songwriter Tony Hatch, music publicist Tony King and many more share their thoughts and memories. With never-before-seen photos, Tin Pan Alley: The Rise of Elton John is the first book to focus solely on the artist?s formative years. It is a must not only for Sir Elton?s army of fans but for anyone with an interest in music history. Music business journalist, Nigel Hunter, who worked in the Alley, provides a funny and touching preface and epilogue. The jacket has been specially designed by David Larkham, who was responsible for producing many of Sir Elton?s early album covers. Codice libro della libreria AAT9780957144200
