    An affectionate, honest tribute now updated with new revelations about the rock and roll icon who helped make AC/DC an international sensation, the second edition of “Bon: The Last Highway” includes a brand new 16-page introduction. Fink examines new information from French media that changes what we know about who was with Bon Scott the night he died, the London drug-dealing connections of the late Alistair Kinnear, a possible heroin link involving the late Yes bassist Chris Squire and revised theories on how Bon died. With unprecedented access to Bon's lovers and newly unearthed documents, this updated edition contains a new introduction and more revelations about the singer's death, dispelling once and for all the idea that Scott succumbed to acute alcohol poisoning on February 19, 1980. Meticulously researched and packed with fresh information, “Bon: The Last Highway” is an affectionate, honest tribute to a titan of rock music. Jesse Fink, born in London in 1973 was raised and educated in Sydney, Australia. He’s author of five books including two internationally bestselling biographies: The aforementioned “Bon: The Last Highway” and “The Youngs: The Brothers Who Built AC/DC”. He was senior editor of non-fiction at HarperCollins Publishers for five years before going on to winning several prestigious sports writing awards as a sports journalist. He’s also written non-fiction biographies including his most recent – “Pure Narco”, the life story of Cuban-American cocaine trafficker Luis Navia and his dramatic arrest in Venezuela by agents of the DEA and United States Customs Service.

    In “Take a Sad Song: The Emotional Currency of ‘Hey Jude’,” James Campion dives deeply into the song's origins, recording, visual presentation, impact, and eventual influence, while also discovering what makes "Hey Jude" a classic musical expression of personal comfort and societal unity conceived by a master songwriter, Paul McCartney. Within its melodic brilliance and lyrical touchstones of empathy and nostalgia resides McCartney's personal and professional relationship with his childhood friend and songwriting partner, John Lennon, and their simultaneous pursuit of the women who would complete them. There are also clues to the growing turmoil within the Beatles and their splintering generation scarred by war, assassination, and virulent protest. Campion's journey into the song includes the insights of experts in the fields of musicology, sociology, philosophy, psychology, and history. Campion also reveals commentary from noted Beatles authors, biographers, music historians, and journalists and, finally, a peek into the craft of songwriting from a host of talented composers across several generations. “Take a Sad Song” is a tribute to how a song can define, inspire, and affect us in ways we do not always fully comprehend, as well as a celebration of a truly amazing track in the Beatles canon that reveals one band's genius and underscores its lasting voice in our cultural and musical landscape. James Campion is a syndicated columnist and contributing editor for the pop culture magazine the Aquarian Weekly, where he's reported on and interviewed several and varied musical artists and reviewed concerts and albums for twenty-three years. His long-form music essays are featured in the webzine Dog Door Cultural. His work has also appeared in New York Newsday, North County News, Hackwriters, Huff Post, among other periodicals. He is also the co-host of the popular music podcast Underwater Sunshine with Counting Crows front man, Adam Duritz. The two host an annual music festival in New York City by the same name.

    Celebrated photographer Elliott Landy presents an intimate look at the legendary female singer-songwriter, Janis Joplin. Landy's iconic images of Janis, both on the road and in concert, capture and preserve her pure essence as well as her onstage magnificence. “Photographs of Janis Joplin: On the Road & On Stage” features beautifully reproduced large format images, many never before published. Janis's own words, taken from recorded interviews by David Dalton, are used as extended captions and paired with photographs to provide insight into the woman behind the legend. Best known for his classic rock photographs, Elliott Landy was one of the first music photographers to be recognized as an artist. He was an official photographer of the 1969 Woodstock Festival. His photographic works include famous portraits of Dylan, the Band, Janis Joplin, Van Morrison, and Jimi Hendrix. Published worldwide in books and magazines for fifty years, he’s exhibited in many museums and art institutions and published ten books of his photographs. Currently he's working on his interactive music video app, other genres of photography books, and guiding Zoom sessions of Sharing Stillness, a pragmatic and simple way of spirituality he has found.
