Publisher's Summary

Turn the Horns On is the powerful, poignant, and gripping life story of Steven "Akili" Walker, a young African-American drummer, who set out in the 1970s to conquer his dream of becoming a successful recording engineer in an industry dominated by white males. This intimate account of sex, drugs, and redemption takes you on a revealing tour behind the scenes in New York City studios and on the road with some of the most groundbreaking musicians of the last 40 years - including James Brown, George Clinton, Tony Bennett, Run-DMC, Prince, LL Cool J, Lee Morgan, Ahmad Jamal, Luther Vandross, The Young Rascals, Humble Pie, and Russell Simmons - with special attention paid to the work that established Akili as one of the architects of hip hop. Contributors to this recording include Davy DMX (music), Camille Gainer Jones (music), Oran Juice Jones and more (special guests).
