Known as the King of Nashville, Tony is adored by the mega-artists whose sounds he was instrumental to crafting, the city he's proud to call home, the millions of fans of of his over 100 number 1 singles, and the aspiring musicians he continues to inspire.

The President of MCA Records for nearly two decades and co-founder of Universal South Records, Tony is also referred to as the founder of Americana music, who shook the scene with his edgy signing choices of Steve Earle and Lyle Lovett, before producing a Golden Era of country music from the eighties to the two-thousands, achieving over 100 million in sales.

His life, musical legacy, and friendships are celebrated in this keepsake coffee table book, including rare behind-the-scenes images. It also includes contemporary, artful shots of 40 musical greats beloved to Tony, all featured in a French Renaissance chair that has been traveled countrywide for them to pose in, bringing out each of these legends' unique personalities.

Being Elvis - A Lonely Life

.

ISBN: 1631494015ISBN: 1631494015Mit leicht abgewandeltem Cover erscheint das von Ray Connolly geschriebene Buch "Being Elvis - A Lonely Life" bei "Liverright" am 03.08.2018 erneut und hat statt 368 Seiten nun 416 - so die Ankündigung.

Ankündigung des Verlages:
"Elvis Presley is a giant figure in American popular culture, a man whose talent and fame were matched only by his later excesses and tragic end. A godlike entity in the history of rock and roll, this twentieth-century icon with a dazzling voice blended gospel and traditionally black rhythm and blues with country to create a completely new kind of music and new way of expressing male sexuality, which simply blew the doors off a staid and repressed 1950s America.In Being Elvis veteran rock journalist Ray Connolly takes a fresh look at the career of the world’s most loved singer, placing him, forty years after his death, not exhaustively in the garish neon lights of Las Vegas but back in his mid-twentieth-century, distinctly southern world.

For new and seasoned fans alike, Connolly, who interviewed Elvis in 1969, re-creates a man who sprang from poverty in Tupelo, Mississippi, to unprecedented overnight fame, eclipsing Frank Sinatra and then inspiring the Beatles along the way.Juxtaposing the music, the songs, and the incendiary live concerts with a personal life that would later careen wildly out of control, Connolly demonstrates that Elvis’s amphetamine use began as early as his touring days of hysteria in the late 1950s, and that the financial needs that drove him in the beginning would return to plague him at the very end.

With a narrative informed by interviews over many years with John Lennon, Bob Dylan, B. B. King, Sam Phillips, and Roy Orbison, among many others, Connolly creates one of the most nuanced and mature portraits of this cultural phenomenon to date.What distinguishes Being Elvis beyond the narrative itself is Connolly’s more subtle examinations of white poverty, class aspirations, and the prison that is extreme fame. As we reach the end of this poignant account, Elvis’s death at forty-two takes on the hue of a profoundly American tragedy. The creator of an American sound that resonates today, Elvis remains frozen in time, an enduring American icon who could “seamlessly soar into a falsetto of pleading and yearning” and capture an inner emotion, perhaps of eternal yearning, to which all of us can still relate.Intimate and unsparing, Being Elvis explores the extravagance and irrationality inherent in the Elvis mythology, ultimately offering a thoughtful celebration of an immortal life."
