The information of the different bands was fascinating and a real eye opener to the music business in the 60's and 70's. Interesting to find out who controlled the business and the caliber of musicians at that time.
Me the Mob and the music by Tommy James although a different story, studio muscicians played a huge roll in the outcome of the music.
I will view all my rock idols differently after listening to this book. Especially the Beach Boys.
Great listen for anyone interested in rock history. I wish I could see the film that was made about the same group of musicians. Check out Carol Kaye on utube.
I am a huge Rush fan having all their albums. I was underwhelmed by this book. and found all the references to rush lyrics to be stupid and uninspiring.
OK, I know Rush fans will love this book and that Neal Peart is an amazing drummer that can do no wrong. This book left me uninspired and disappointed in the simpleness of the characters and the pour plot development.
what ever happened to the Anarchist and the Timekeeper? I guess they just went on doing there stuff.
The movie is not bad and funny at times, But the book is very interesting. I enjoyed it very much
Robert Greenberg does a wonderful job. If you are into music his lectures are not to be missed. This is the seventh lecture I have enjoyed from the composer great courses.Two more to go Mahler and Shostakovich. Get them all you will love them and learn all the good stuff about how music is written and the lives of these amazing dysfunctional men.
This lecture has it all domineering father making his money from his daughters talents. Sound just like some the child stars of our lifetime. Husbands jealous of his wife's talent and career. Stories of the stars hob nobbling together. What more could you ask for?
And the music oh the wonderful music and history about how it was conceived and composed.
This is my fourth lecture in this series hope to listen to them all before years end.
I was a newbie to this subject, I found it very interesting and inforamtive.
I will never view the Fedex logo the same. Understanding how the human brain works is very cool.
This book was very informative and helped me decide if I should take statins. I enjoyed the information in this book, And learned the dangers of lowering Cholesterol to far.
First position. This is an amazing story of courage, faith, love of family and forgiveness. Other stories that I have read that have shown this type of courage are A Captain’s Duty Somali Pirates, Navy Seals, and Dangerous Days at Sea, Unbroken by Laura Hildebrand and South by Earnest Shackleton. Each of these books shows great courage against unbelievable odds. Each of these books has given me the strength I needed to go on with my own battles in my live.
Elizabeth thank you for reading your own story, your voice inflection said it all, and story telling was wonderful. I live in Centerville and remember the search for you. Having four daughters some your age I can’t imagine the pain your parents felt for nine months.
Elizabeth's mother's advice is some of the best I have ever heard. I am inspried by her advice to not give Brian and Wanda any more time or energy from her life.I will try and apply this in my life when something difficult happens.Thank you
Robert Greenberg's knowledge of music form and in depth information of Haydn's life. The discription of how a piece was written and how it related to events in the composers life.
Haydn's relationship with other composer's, Mozart and Beethoven.
Why is it that composers have messed up love lifes and seem to chase the wrong women?
Brhams, Haydn, Tchaikovsky
This is my forth composer lecture of the series and I have three more to listen to. All have been very informative and inspiring.
I love the jokes, I love the enthusiasm, I love the lectures of Robert Greenberg.
Order these lectures today they are inexpensive, Then go buy some great music you can't go wrong.
I don't know if I would have the time again with all the other Dr Greenberg courses I am listening to. I have listend to about fifty four hours and counting. These courses are most invormative.and give you a very good idea of the composers life and the history of the area in which he lived.
His relationship with Van Meck is very interesting, and the story about his Romeo and Juliet.
Ihave listened to Dr Greendergs lectures on Brahms, Stavinsky and how to listen to and understand music 3rd addition I have several others of his courses that I will listen to in the future.
Why to long for one sitting. nice to have it in dailey lectures.
Yes, Dr. Greenberg does a wonderful job brining these composers to life. This is my third course by Dr. Greenberg and I have enjoyed each one.
Dr Greenberg's jokes might be adolesant, yet at the same time he does enliven these courses. He also knows his stuff.
his enthusiasm is fantastic
These courses are a great way to learn about composers and classical music. I plan on listening to all his courses and many others in the great courses series.
