Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink is the long-awaited memoir from Elvis Costello, one of rock and roll's most iconic stars.
Born Declan Patrick MacManus, Elvis Costello was raised in London and Liverpool, grandson of a trumpet player on the White Star Line and son of a jazz musician who became a successful radio dance band vocalist. Costello went into the family business and had taken the popular music world by storm before he was twenty-four. Costello continues to add to one of the most intriguing and extensive songbooks of the day. His performances have taken him from a cardboard guitar in his front room to fronting a rock and roll band on your television screen and performing in the world's greatest concert halls in a wild variety of company.
Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink describes how Costello's career has somehow endured for almost four decades through a combination of dumb luck and animal cunning, even managing the occasional absurd episode of pop stardom. This memoir, written with the same inimitable touch as his lyrics, and including dozens of images from his personal archive, offers his unique view of his unlikely and sometimes comical rise to international success, with diversions through the previously undocumented emotional foundations of some of his best known songs and the hits of tomorrow. The book contains many stories and observations about his renowned co-writers and co-conspirators, though Costello also pauses along the way for considerations on the less appealing side of infamy.
Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink is destined to be a classic, idiosyncratic memoir of a singular man.

On a December morning in 1970, the King of Rock ’n Roll showed up on the lawn of the White House to request a meeting with the most powerful man in the world, President Nixon.

When Elvis Presley decided he wanted to buy a horse in 1966, he didn't want just any horse. "He wanted a Golden Palomino," Priscilla Presley remembers. "He would get up at 3:00 in the morning, go to certain farms and ranches and say, 'Do you have a Golden Palomino for sale?' People would say, 'That was Elvis Presley!" Elvis's legendary love of horses drove him to find the Golden Palomino who would become his beloved companion Rising Sun, and to fill Graceland's stables and Circle G Ranch with horses for family and friends to ride. In the first-ever book dedicated to Elvis's equestrian side, horse lovers Kimberly Gatto and Victoria Racimo share rare stories, interviews, and photographs that shed light on the beautiful, quiet life the King lived when he was with his horses.
Waar het alles so verkeerd gegaan? Sy het haar voorgeneem om nie soos Ma koud en afsydig teenoor haar man te wees nie. Om te veg vir haar huwelik. Ma het in die huwelik gebly in liggaam maar haar gees was nie daar nie. Sy was nog heeltyd in liggaam en gees daar. Sy het alles gegee, altyd die vrede probeer bewaar, nooit die appelkar omgegooi nie. Hoekom is dit dan dat sy nie haar man kon hou nie? In hierdie aangrypende roman word pertinente vrae gevra: Waarom bly ons lojaal tot die mense vir wie ons lief is? Is daar 'n “reg” en “verkeerd” in verhoudings? Is dit onselfsugtig en groothartig om by 'n verslaafde te staan – of eerder pateties om nie jouself eerste te stel nie? Toe Elvis ophou sing is 'n boek wat 'n binnekyk gee in die lewe van alkoholisme gesien deur die familielede van die alkoholis. Meer spesifiek die kind van 'n alkoholis. Die boek beeld die progressiewe stadia van alkoholisme uit. Waar die alkoholis net as 'n sosiale drinker begin en opeindig as 'n aggressiewe dronkaard. Toe Elvis ophou sing ondersoek ook die effek, wat alkoholisme het, op die individu wat in so 'n huis grootword en later 'n huishouding van haar eie het. Hoe denkpatrone, gedragspatrone en keuses steeds gedryf word deur hierdie disfunksionele gesinsomstandighede waarin die volwassene as kind grootgeword het.
What was it like to be Elvis Presley? What did it feel like when impossible fame made him its prisoner? As the world's first rock star there was no one to tell him what to expect, no one with whom he could share the burden of being himself - of being Elvis.On the outside he was all charm, sex appeal, outrageously confident on stage and stunningly gifted in the recording studio. To his fans he seemed to have it all. He was Elvis. With his voice and style influencing succeeding generations of musicians, he should have been free to sing any song he liked, to star in any film he was offered, and to tour in any country he chose. But he wasn't free. The circumstances of his poor beginnings in the American South, which, as he blended gospel music with black rhythm and blues and white country songs, helped him create rock and roll, had left him with a lifelong vulnerability. Made rich and famous beyond his wildest imaginings when he mortgaged his talent to the machinations of his manager, 'Colonel' Tom Parker, there would be an inevitable price to pay. Though he daydreamed of becoming a serious film actor, instead he grew to despise his own movies and many of the songs he had to sing in them. He could have rebelled. But he didn't. Why? In the Seventies, as the hits rolled in again, and millions of fans saw him in a second career as he sang his way across America, he talked of wanting to tour the world. But he never did. What was stopping him?BEING ELVIS takes a clear-eyed look at the most-loved entertainer ever, and finds an unusual boy with a dazzling talent who grew up to change popular culture; a man who sold a billion records and had more hits than any other singer, but who became trapped by his own frailties in the loneliness of fame.

Morgan Neville directs this Oscar-winning documentary exploring the often neglected role of backing singers in rock and roll history. Through tracing the stories of enduring vocal support artists such as Darlene Love, Merry Clayton, Lisa Fischer and Tata Vega from the heyday of rock and roll to the present day, the film endeavours to bring to the fore musicians whose voices adorn many of the most famous songs in pop history yet remain largely unknown. With artists such as David Bowie, The Rolling Stones and Elvis Presley often employing African-Americans to provide their backing vocals, the film also highlights the importance of these singers as trailblazers for a more inclusive musical mainstream - though the individuals themselves never quite made it to centre-stage... The film won the Academy Award for Best Documentary in 2014.
