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.

An American institution, Sun Records has a history with many chapters -- its Memphis origins with visionary Sam Phillips, the breakthrough recordings of Elvis Presley, and the studio's immense influence on the sound of popular music. But behind the company's chart toppers and legendary musicians there exists another story, told by Barbara Barnes Sims. In the male-dominated workforce of the 1950s, 24-year-old Sims found herself thriving in the demanding roles of publicist and sales promotion coordinator at Sun Records. Sims's job placed her in the studio with Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis, Charlie Rich, Carl Perkins, and other Sun entertainers, as well as the unforgettable Phillips, whose work made the music that defined an era. The Next Elvis: Searching for Stardom at Sun Records chronicles Sims's career at the studio, a pivotal time at this recording mecca, as she darted from disc jockeys to distributors. Sims not only entertains with personal stories of big personalities, but also brings humor to the challenges of a young woman working in a fast and tough industry. Her disarming narrative ranges from descriptions of a disgraced Jerry Lee Lewis to the remarkable impact and tragic fall of DJ Daddy-O Dewey to the frenzied Memphis homecoming of Elvis after his military service. Collectively, these vignettes offer a rare and intimate look at the people, the city, and the studio that permanently shifted the trajectory of rock 'n' roll.

While behind bars he takes up music and learns to be a rock and roll singer. Eventually he attracts the attention of a beautiful record company talent scout (Judy Tyler) and the path to fame appears before him. 'Viva Las Vegas' (1963) operates as a celebration of the gambling capital of America.

Lucky must fend off Count Elmo Mancini (Cesare Danova), who also has his eye on grand prix victory and Rusty. In 'Spinout' (1966) freewheeling singer and racing driver Mike McCoy (Presley) has three beautiful women competing to get him down the aisle. Cynthia Foxhugh (Shelley Fabares) is a spoiled rich kid used to getting her own way, Les (Deborah Walley) is a drummer who believes her musical inclinations may win McCoy's heart and Diana (Diane McBain) is an author seeking out the perfect man. She believes she has found him, but McCoy's determination to drive an experimental new car in a race poses a danger to the plans of all three women. In 'Speedway' (1968) racing driver Steve Grayson (Presley) owes a debt to the US government of $145,000. He decides that the only way to pay the bill is to win the Charlotte 500 race and enters, determined to triumph and to win the heart of IRS agent Susan Jack (Nancy Sinatra) in the process. In 'It Happened at the World's Fair' (1962) the livelihood of crop dusters Mike (Presley) and Danny (Gary Lockwood) is stolen away from them when a sheriff impounds their plane because of Danny's gambling debts.

Finally, 'Harum Scarum' (1965) features Presley as action movie star Johnny Tyrone, whose real life becomes adventurous when he is drugged and kidnapped by underground assassins while on a goodwill tour of the Middle East. The assassins have seen Johnny's films and want to employ him to carry out the assassination of a desert king for them. Naturally, Johnny refuses and attempts a daring escape across the desert in the company of the beautiful Princess Shalimar (Mary Ann Mobley).

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.

The Ballad in American Popular Music - From Elvis to Beyonce (Hardcover): David Metzer The Ballad in American Popular Music - From Elvis to Beyonce (Hardcover)
David Metzer
R990 Discovery Miles 9 900 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

While ballads have been a cornerstone of popular music for decades, this is the first book to explore the history and appeal of these treasured songs. David Metzer investigates how and why the styles of ballads have changed over a period of more than seventy years, offering a definition of the genre and discussing the influences of celebrated performers including Frank Sinatra, Aretha Franklin, and Whitney Houston. The emotional power of the ballad is strongly linked to the popular mood of the time, and consequently songs can tell us much about how events and emotions were felt and understood in wider culture at specific moments of recent American history. Tracing both the emotional and stylistic developments of the genre from the 1950s to the present day, this lively and engaging volume is as much a musical history as it is a history of emotional life in America.

It was his most electric and influential time as a live performer. The young and hungry Elvis, the rising star, burst onto stages large and small-sexy, controversial, brimming with talent and ambition. One lightning-hot year in Florida fueled his rise from novelty act to headlining megastar. Elvis Ignited follows the immensely talented musician through his tour of Florida in 1955-1956, where he played more concerts than in any other state in the country and where he first became the object of worship, scorn, and controversy. Bob Kealing interviews people who saw the King up close in high school gymnasiums, nightclubs, radio stations, and shopping centers, recalling the time-stands-still memories of hearing his hit songs for the first time and the shrieks of young fans at the sight of the young rockabilly god. Struck by a new kind of music and performances so different from anything they had known before, Floridians saw how special Elvis was before the rest of the world caught on. Kealing continues the story through Elvis's years in the army and the filming of Follow that Dream in Florida in 1961. Elvis's rise to fame in the Sunshine State was a turning point in American music history. It was the arrival of rock and roll.

Perhaps more relevant than ever before, Rob Bell's Velvet Elvis is his original and bestselling classic. In Velvet Elvis, Bell invites readers to wrestle with their faith, and offers a radical new perspective on Jesus, the church, and Christianity today. We know there's something more. We sense it, we feel it, and we want it. But how do we find it - a spirituality that stands up to the questions of an honest, searching mind? 'This book is for those who need a fresh take on Jesus and what it means for us to live the kind of life he teaches us to live,' writes Rob Bell. This new edition of Velvet Elvis, along with the relaunch of Rob Bell's three other classic works, offers what Rob does best: original and refreshingly personal perspectives on what Christianity is really about. 'We have to test everything,' writes Bell. 'Do that to this book. Don't swallow it uncritically. Think about it. Wrestle with it. Just because I'm a Christian and I'm trying to articulate a Christian worldview doesn't mean I've got it nailed. I'm contributing to the discussion. God has spoken, and the rest is commentary, right?'

"He wasn't dead and gone to Heaven. He was alive and still in Graceland. Cursed to live another year on God's earth as Elvis Presley. The man from yesterday trapped in a today of tomorrows..." As 1968 dawns, the once King of Rock 'n' Roll faces cultural oblivion. While elsewhere the Sixties are swinging, for Elvis they're sinking - in terrible films, drug addiction, paranoia, religious mania and the mercenary wiles of his psychopathic manager. At 33 the legend who once had it all is lost, lonely and slowly going insane. Until thrown a last lifeline. His own one-hour TV special: a do-or-die final chance to remind the world who, and what, Elvis Presley really is. The Comeback plots the incredible true story of Elvis' fall and rise from Army discharge to iconic black leather resurrection. Simon Goddard takes the reader inside the life, music and mind of Elvis: a 24/7 delirium of women, pills, midnight movies and holy mumbo jumbo, isolated from an America unravelling in its own Sixties chaos of war, racism, riots and assassinations, until his world and theirs collide in the greatest performance of his life. A genre-busting modernist rock 'n' roll fable unlike any music biography you've ever read, The Comeback is the definitive account of how it took Elvis eight years on the big screen to lose his crown - but just one magical hour on a small one to win it back.
