This is a wild insider's ride with one of music's most notorious journalists. Here are 15 gothic music profiles guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat from the author of "Tales of Times Square".Legendary musicians and songwriters captured in moments of crisis despair revelation and glory including: Leiber and Stoller the white fathers of RandB and rock and roll who possess what is perhaps the last great untold story of the music biz. Their history began at the twilight of the Guys and Dolls era when their declared mission statement was to Make Black Folks Laugh. And this they did creating the American songbook of the '50s and '60s led by Elvis the Coasters and the Drifters; Doc Pomus the only white blues singer in America making records in the 1940s; Half of the hit songwriting team of Pomus-Shuman during the Brill Building era Doc had the biggest heart in the music business.It also includes: The New York recording studio scene of the 1970s as told by the studio cats who played on the most important records of that era from Aretha to Steely Dan bassist Chuck Rainey Texas tenor saxman David Fathead Newman guitarist Cornell Dupress and Atlantic Records producer Joel Dorn. Dorn's profile reveals exactly how the record biz spiraled down its ruinous course that led to the sad corporate culture of today; A sad romance with the Ronettes' Ronnie Spector dubbed an oldie once she left her teens; Hard-luck-Texas fables of Austin musicians Keith Ferguson and Tommy Shannon, the original bass players behind the Fabulous Thunderbirds Johnny Winter and Stevie Ray Vaughan; and, the story of Rick Sikes and the Rhythm Rebels the Texas band that founded the Outlaw Country movement, but never got to recap its rewards since they were convicted of robbing banks in 1970.
