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.Purchase a copy of “Take a Sad Song: The Emotional Currency of ‘Hey Jude’” through Backbeat Books: backbeatbooks.com/books/9781493062386Listen to a playlist of the music discussed in this episode: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/09OItbDfMWM6WsGC3qX4hD?si=4f8d1914f9534fb1Visit James Campion’s official website: www.jamescampion.comVisit James Campion’s Facebook page: www.facebook.com/jc.authorFollow James Campion on Twitter: https://mobile.twitter.com/FearNoArtFollow James Campion on Instagram: www.instagram.com/jamescampion/?hl=enListen to the “Underwater Sunshine” podcast with Adam Duritz & James Campion: www.jamescampion.com/underwater-sunshine-podcastListen to the “Sunshine Spotlight” podcast with James Campion: https://underwatersunshinefest.com/sunshine-spotlightsThe Booked On Rock Website: www.bookedonrock.comFollow The Booked On Rock with Eric Senich:FACEBOOK: www.facebook.com/bookedonrockpodcastTWITTER: https://twitter.com/bookedonrockINSTAGRAM: www.instagram.com/bookedonrockpodcast/?hl=enSupport Your Local Bookstore!

“Hearts on Fire” is about the creative explosion in Canadian music of the early 2000s, which captured the world’s attention in entirely new ways. The Canadian wave didn’t just sweep over one genre or one city, it stretched from coast to coast, affecting large bands and solo performers, rock bands and DJs, and it connected to international scenes by capitalizing on new technology and old-school DIY methods.Arcade Fire, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Feist, Tegan and Sara, Alexisonfire: those were just the tip of the iceberg. This is also the story of hippie chicks, turntablists, poetic punks, absurdist pranksters, queer orchestras, obtuse wordsmiths, electronic psychedelic jazz, power-pop supergroups, sexually bold electro queens, cowboys who used to play speed metal, garage rock evangelists, classically trained solo violinists, and the hip-hop scene that preceded Drake. This is Canada like it had never sounded before. This is the Canada that soundtracked the dawn of a new century.Featuring more than 100 exclusive interviews and two decades of research, “Hearts on Fire” is the music book every Canadian music fan will want on their shelf.Michael Barclay is the author of the 2018 national bestseller “The Never-Ending Present: The Story of Gord Downie and the Tragically Hip”. He is also a co-author of “Have Not Been the Same: The CanRock Renaissance 1985–95”, to which this book could be considered a sequel.

More than 40 years since their formation, and 125 million album sales later, Metallica is as relevant as ever. Much has been written about the band, but “The Meaning of Metallica” is the first book to focus exclusively on their lyrics. Their mighty guitar riffs and pounding drums are legendary, but Metallica’s words match the intensity of their tunes. Lead singer James Hetfield writes rock poetry dealing with death, war, addiction, alienation, corruption, freedom, religion, and other weighty topics. Painting a rainbow of emotions with a deft palette, subtle but not obscure, Hetfield’s lyrics deserve careful attention. A master of narrative, Metallica makes listeners care about a vast array of characters, from a vengeful God to a suicidal teenager, to a man in mid-life crisis. “The Meaning of Metallica” is like a riveting conversation with a close friend. A thematic tour de force that traces Hetfield’s lyrical development across the decades, this companion examines everything from deep cuts like “Confusion” to megahits like “Enter Sandman.” Sure to spark debate and discussion, “The Meaning of Metallica” provides a close reading of lyrics dense with details and rich with allusions.William Irwin is a philosophy professor, literary critic, and heavy metal scholar who teaches at King’s College in Pennsylvania. The books in his pop culture series, including "Metallica and Philosophy", "Seinfeld and Philosophy", "The Simpsons and Philosophy", and "The Matrix and Philosophy" (a New York Times bestseller) have sold over one million copies.Purchase a copy of "The Meaning of Metallica: Ride the Lyrics" through Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Meaning-Metallica-Ride-Lyrics/dp/1770416188/refVisit ECW Press website: https://ecwpress.comListen to a playlist of the Metallica songs discussed in this episode: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/1U2KGGRl8nKg5xnwCVvZIX?si=d96fab35a6d947d5Contact William Irwin by email: williamirwin@kings.eduContact & follow William Irwin on Twitter: https://twitter.com/williamirwin38Purchase a copy of William Irvin's "Metallica and Philosophy: A Crash Course in Brain Surgery" through Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Metallica-Philosophy-Crash-Course-Surgery/dp/1405163488/refThe Booked On Rock Website: www.bookedonrock.comFollow The Booked On Rock with Eric Senich:FACEBOOK: www.facebook.com/bookedonrockpodcastTWITTER: https://twitter.com/bookedonrockINSTAGRAM: www.instagram.com/bookedonrockpodcast/?hl=enSupport Your Local Bookstore!

Ushering in a new era of confessional music that spoke openly about experiences of trauma, depression, and self-loathing, Nine Inch Nails' seminal album, 1994’s ‘The Downward Spiral’, changed popular music forever—bringing transgressive themes of heresy, S&M, and body horror to the masses and taking music technology to its limits.Released in 1994, the album resonated across a generation, combining elements of metal, industrial, synth-pop, and ambient electronica, and going on to sell over four million copies. Now, “Into the Never” explores the creation and cultural impact of ‘The Downward Spiral’, one of the most influential and artistically significant albums of the twentieth century.Inspired by David Bowie's ‘Low’ and Pink Floyd's ‘The Wall’, the album recounts one man's disintegration as he descends into nihilism and nothingness. Blurring the lines between autobiography and concept album, creation and decay, it’s also the story of Trent Reznor as he pushed himself to the edge of the abyss, trapped in a cycle of addiction and self-destruction. “The Downward Spiral” also presents a reflection of America and a wider culture of violence, connecting the Columbine High School shooting, the infamous Manson family murders, and the aftermath of Vietnam and the Gulf War.Featuring new interviews with collaborators and artists inspired by the album, “Into the Never” sets ‘The Downward Spiral’ in the context of music of the era and brings the story up to date, from Reznor's recovery to his reinvention as an Oscar-winning soundtrack artist.Adam Steiner studied philosophy at the University of Aberdeen and writes about music, street-art culture, architecture, and transgressive fiction. He released his first novel in 2018 titled “Politics of the Asylum”.Purchase a copy of “Into the Never: Nine Inch Nails and the Creation of the Downward Spiral” through Backbeat Books: http://backbeatbooks.com/books/9781617137310Listen to a playlist of the music discussed in this episode: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/2Qk0O5w3mPgDOAV2ZbZc0S?si=0a2c6a896a2b49a2Visit Adam Steiner’s website: https://adamsteiner.ukFollow Adam Steiner :Twitter: https://twitter.com/BurndtOutWard?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5EauthorInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/adamsteinerauthor/?hl=enFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/adam.steiner.10The Booked On Rock Website: www.bookedonrock.comFollow The Booked On Rock with Eric Senich:FACEBOOK: www.facebook.com/bookedonrockpodcastTWITTER: https://twitter.com/bookedonrockINSTAGRAM: www.instagram.com/bookedonrockpodcast/?hl=enSupport Your Local Bookstore!

The 1970s saw the rise of rock and metal as a force in record and ticket sales. Right there at the birth of this was Black Sabbath, whose first album came from nowhere to smash into the top of the charts in Britain and around the world. “Black Sabbath in the 1970s” covers the career of the original foursome - Geezer Butler, Tony Iommi, Ozzy Osbourne and Bill Ward – from Polka Tulk, through Earth and their original nine years as Black Sabbath, when the band recorded such iconic albums as ‘Paranoid’, ‘Sabbath Bloody Sabbath’ and ‘Masters of Reality’.

Incredibly, Uriah Heep have now been active for a full fifty years. Few, however, would argue that the period which has come to define them the most, the years they were most influential, was from 1970 to 1980. During this decade the band released an incredible thirteen studio albums and a legendary double live album. All this while going through a regular turnaround of musicians in all but the guitar and keyboard roles. This book takes the reader on a year-by-year journey through that decade, looking at the albums, the often-grueling touring schedules and the ups and downs of the relationships between band members, most notably singer David Byron, guitarist Mick Box, keyboardist – guitarist – vocalist Ken Hensley, bassists Paul Newton, Gary Thain and John Wetton, and drummer Lee Kerslake. Never quite attaining the sales and success of some of their rivals at the time, Uriah Heep nevertheless released some of the most extraordinary music of the decade – and "Uriah Heep in the 1970s" takes you through it all.

It began with the Beatles’ “Helter Skelter.” It was distilled to its dark essence by Black Sabbath. And it’s flourished into a vibrant modern underground, epitomized by Newcastle’s Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs. This is the evolution of heavy music, and “Electric Wizards” is your sonic gazetteer. The voyage is as varied as it is illuminating: from the lysergic blunt trauma of Blue Cheer to the locked grooves of Funkadelic, the aural frightmares of Faust to the tectonic crush of Sleep, alighting on post-punk, industrial, grunge, stoner rock, and numerous other genres along the way. Ranging from household names to obscure cult heroes and heroines, “Electric Wizards” demonstrates how each successive phase of heavy music was forged by what came before, outlining a rich and eclectic lineage that extends far beyond the usual boundaries of heavy rock or heavy metal. It extols those who did things differently, who introduced something fresh and exciting into this elemental tradition, whether by design, accident, or sheer chance. In doing so, “Electric Wizards” weaves an entirely new tapestry of heavy music.J.R.

Craig Odanovich grew up in Flour Bluff, Texas. In an era before Dairy Queen officially expanded their menu beyond dessert, he learned entrepreneurial principles working for the family-owned franchise. Later as a young music entrepreneur, he launched a successful record store: Craig's Record Factory. It was a time when neighborhood record stores were still a prime point of connection between popular music and the public. The experience augmented Craig's passion for music and prepared him for future business ventures. He rose to the executive level in the early video rental industry. He competed neck-to-neck with Blockbuster and led growth for the regional grocery chain H-E-B, continuing to apply his skills towards building value in subsequent competitive business arenas until his retirement. Not one to shy away from a new endeavor, Craig dove into writing. In two and a half years, he published the steamy adventure trilogy, the “Black Widow Trainer”. Throughout the many stages of his career, he maintained interest in popular music and film. Three decades of avidly collecting music and watching movies provided a wellspring of inspiration for Craig and he’s chronicled it all in “Craig's Record Factory: A Young Entrepreneur's Journey Through the 70's and 80's”.

Called by Record Collector “the most accomplished critical overview yet” of progressive rock and one of their 2011 books of the year, “Beyond and Before” moves away from the limited consensus that prog rock is exclusively English in origin and that it was destroyed by the advent of punk in 1976. Instead, by tracing its multiple origins and complex transitions, it argues for the integration of jazz and folk into progressive rock and the extension of prog in Kate Bush, Radiohead, Porcupine Tree and many more.In 2021, an updated and expanded edition of “Beyond and Before” was released. The 10-year anniversary revised edition continues to further unpack definitions of progressive rock and includes a brand-new chapter focusing on post-conceptual trends in the 2010s through to the contemporary moment. The new edition discusses the complex creativity of progressive metal and folk in greater depth, as well as new fusions of genre that move across global cultures and that rework the extended form and mission of progressive rock, including in recent pop concept albums. Every chapter is revised to keep the process of rethinking progressive rock alive and vibrant as a hybrid, open form.Paul Hegarty is Professor of French and Francophone Studies at the University of Nottingham, UK.

Arriving in California as a young boy in the early 1960s, Edward Van Halen and his brother Alex were ripe for the coming musical revolution. The sons of a Dutch, saxophone-playing father, the brothers discovered the Beatles, Cream and others, and once Eddie switched from drums to guitar it started to become apparent where the future of both brothers lay.From the moment their hugely influential 1978 debut landed, Van Halen set a high bar for the rock 'n' roll lifestyle, creating an entirely new style of post-'60s hard rock becoming the quintessential Californian band of the 1980s. But there was also an undercurrent of tragedy to their story, as Eddie's struggles played out in public, from his difficult relationship with the band's original singer, Dave Lee Roth, to the band's substance abuse problems, and from the break-up of his marriage to Valerie Bertinelli to his long-running battle with cancer.With unique insights, Paul Brannigan's “Eruption” reaches beyond the boundaries of a conventional rock biography to explore the cultural, political, and social contexts that shaped an icon while turning up the volume on a life lived in the fast lane.Paul Brannigan is a contributor to Rolling Stone, Classic Rock, Q, and Metal Hammer magazines. He’s also the author of the acclaimed book “This Is a Call: The Life and Times of Dave Grohl”.Purchase a copy of "Unchained: The Eddie Van Halen Story" through the Van Halen Store: https://www.vanhalenstore.com/page/VH/PROD/B76Visit the Van Halen News Desk at: https://www.vhnd.comListen to a playlist of the music discussed in this episode: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/2QnwcNcy92Hep0F8qL6nrX?si=27af3a4ca006434aThe Booked On Rock Website: www.bookedonrock.comFollow The Booked On Rock with Eric Senich:FACEBOOK: www.facebook.com/bookedonrockpodcastTWITTER: https://twitter.com/bookedonrockINSTAGRAM: www.instagram.com/bookedonrockpodcast/?hl=enSupport Your Local Bookstore!

Co de Kloet and Frank Zappa were friends for many years, and during that time Co recorded nearly every conversation the two men had. They also corresponded frequently—about life, music, politics, and much more besides—and this book offers a unique chronicle of their friendship, from their first meeting in 1977 to Zappa’s death in 1993.Co is renowned as an expert on Zappa’s music, but this book is about far more than that, and is unlike any other collection of interviews. As his son Dweezil writes in his foreword, Frank was a reluctant and sometimes combative interviewee, yet his conversations with Co were open and wide-ranging.Through more than two decades of these discussions, Frank & Co reveals a thoughtful, sensitive, and expansive Zappa, offering readers new insights into the life and career of one of the great masters of twentieth-century American music. It also includes Co’s favorite memories of Frank, as well as interviews with Zappa alumni Flo & Eddie, Jimmy Carl Black, Pamela Zarubica, and Don van Vliet, aka Captain Beefheart.Purchase a copy of “Frank & Co: Conversations with Frank Zappa 1977–1993” through Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Frank-Co-Conversations-Zappa-1977-1993/dp/1911036815/refVisit Jawbone Press’s website: http://jawbonepress.comFollow Co De Kloet on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/co_de_kloet_creative_catalyst/?hl=enListen to a playlist of the music discussed in this episode: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/2K73fDVY9Zt1f44bOQrHoL?si=e1620e8ae5924c16The Booked On Rock Website: www.bookedonrock.comFollow The Booked On Rock with Eric Senich:FACEBOOK: www.facebook.com/bookedonrockpodcastTWITTER: https://twitter.com/bookedonrockINSTAGRAM: www.instagram.com/bookedonrockpodcast/?hl=enSupport Your Local Bookstore!

If you’ve never heard of Nick Panaseiko, that’s entirely understandable. He was a backstage guy, making sure that the act onstage is playing to a full house, making sure their records were on the radio and in record stores.He was a promo man. Kelly Jay of Crowbar referred to the Canadian music industry of the era as a matter of ‘six degrees of Nick Panaseiko’. Taking off from a popular Panasonic ad campaign of the day, legendary rocker Ronnie Hawkins dubbed him, “Nick Panaseiko, a man slightly ahead of his time”. And at his induction into the Jack Richardson Hall of Fame, Alice Cooper, Ronnie Hawkins and Peter Criss of KISS all sent video tributes.“Promo Man” places Nick in the zeitgeist of the music industry in the 60s and 70s and his work with the acts who were - and in some cases still are - the aural soundtrack to our lives. How Nick made his way to the epicenter of the Canadian music industry and made his way out alive is the story of “Promo Man”. It takes the reader from the 17-year-old kid who booked The Supremes to a sold-out show through his success breaking KISS in Canada to his time with Quality Records and WEA in the 70s.While Nick’s metier was promoting acts, his other duties as assigned including finding Freddie Mercury and Liberace Toronto gay bars, playing board games with young Marlon Richards, finding cocaine for his father, Keith and Ronnie Wood, having to deal with a racist Bill Cosby, being the de-facto minder for Keith Moon at a party and being an extra in a Van Halen video.This book truly lives in his tales of a breakneck lifestyle, working with and promoting acts including Queen, Liberace, The Cars, Van Halen, and finally The Rolling Stones. This is an insider’s look at the freewheeling times of the Canadian music industry as it came into being, told by the consummate insider. Key to the book are the many photographs by acclaimed rock and roll photographer John Rowlands of Nick with artists including Debbie Harry, Donna Summer, KISS, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Johnny Cash, Liberace, Keith Moon, and Freddie Mercury. The fast pace of the narrative coupled with the photos brings to life a much-mythologized time in popular music.To tell Nick Panaseiko’s story is author Bob Klanac, a Canadian music journalist who has penned hundreds of reviews and interviews. Among them: Levon Helm, John Mayer, Garth Hudson, Bill Wyman, Chris Cornell, Johnny Winters and many, many more. He was a juror for the Polaris Music Prize and is currently a member of the Slaight Family Polaris Heritage Prize Jury and a Juno Awards juror.

The ELO story is one of continued success for over 50 years. From inauspicious beginnings in 1971, where live audiences barely reached double figures, ELO would become one of the most popular bands in the world by the end of the decade, thanks largely to the songwriting and production talents of Jeff Lynne. There were hits such as “Evil Woman”, “Mr. Blue Sky” and “Don’t Bring Me Down”; multi-platinum albums like ‘Out Of The Blue’ and ‘Discovery’, and, of course, their spectacular stage shows. Although ELO finally called it a day in 1986, they re-emerged in 2014 as Jeff Lynne’s ELO, playing a triumphant comeback concert at London’s Hyde Park. Since then, they haven’t looked back, releasing further albums to critical and public acclaim, culminating in ELO’s biggest ever live show at Wembley Stadium and 2019’s chart topping album, ‘From Out Of Nowhere’. As well as examining all of ELO’s recorded catalogue, Barry Delve has spoken to many people who have been involved with the band over the decades, uncovering along the way previously unseen photographs and new information about the group and their recordings, making this one of the most comprehensive guides to ELO ever published.Barry Delve is an author and artist. He is acknowledged as the foremost ELO expert in the Chilterns, if not the whole of South Buckinghamshire.

1970 was a year of change in pop and rock music, with divisions between both becoming ever more blurred. More ambitiously constructed epics, heavy rock numbers and contemporary folk songs competed with the mainstream and easy listening fare on Top of the Pops and in the Top 30 singles, while progressive and jazz-rock took their first bows in the album charts. There were live albums, notably from The Rolling Stones and The Who, made partly to combat the market in bootleg recordings. Meanwhile, several singer-songwriters like James Taylor found major acceptance and the death of Jimi Hendrix was widely mourned. The likes of Van Morrison, Elton John, Deep Purple, and Lindisfarne achieved their initial successes. Groups such as Led Zeppelin and Jethro Tull consolidated early success while developing in new directions.By the end of the year, many a critic and music fan could look back on a twelve-month period in which their landscape had altered almost beyond recognition. This is the story of 1970 and the twenty-five key rock albums that helped define it.John Van der Kiste has published over seventy books, mostly historical biography and music, including titles on The Beatles, Jeff Lynne/ELO, Led Zeppelin, Lindisfarne and Steve Winwood. He has also reviewed books and records for the local and national press and fanzines and co-founded and edited the 70s fanzine Keep on Rockin’. He has performed with groups, run mobile discos, and written booklet notes for CD reissues from EMI and other labels. An occasional musician and songwriter, he also co-wrote one track on Riff Regan's Milestones (2015) and played harmonica on London's The Hell for Leather Mob (2020).

In the early 1980s two bands dominated the independent charts: the Smiths and the Sisters of Mercy. They have proved to be equally influential. In every city in the world you will find people dressed like they have just walked offstage from playing a gig with the Sisters of Mercy in 1983.“Paint My Name in Black and Gold” tells the story of their rise – how against the odds and all reasonable expectation they came to make transcendent and life-changing music. It is also about the glorious stupidity of being in a Leeds rock band in the early 80s. There’s a lot of dry ice, blood, vomit, speed and sex in the toilets. There are tales involving a milk float, a VHS cassette of a Michael Caine film, a hibernating snake, a wardrobe in a tree, an amyl nitrate-soaked effects pedal and the inopportune consumption of Dutch hash cake.The Sisters began in 1980, meandered through two years of intermittent gigging, iffy recordings and sundry line-up changes without much attention being paid to them before finding their two classic line-ups: Eldritch on vocals, Adams on bass, Gary Marx and Ben Gunn – and later Wayne Hussey – on guitars, and a drum machine called Doktor Avalanche.By force of will and their own peculiar talents – and with the support of friends and the kindness of strangers – these young men achieved greatness. Hussey and Adams – The Evil Children, as they termed themselves – were hard living road dogs with fascinating musical back-stories. Neither Gunn nor Marx were natural rock’n’roll animals, but the latter performed with such abandon – often in such lurid shirts – that it was hard to believe he also wrote The Sisters’ most delicate and beautiful music. Lead singer Andrew Eldritch was the most peculiar and compelling of them all, a singular and mesmerizing amalgam of T. S. Eliot and David Bowie. In the five years covered in this book, Eldritch staked a powerful claim to be the greatest rock star of his generation.Paint My Name in Black and Gold covers the band’s rise until the release of their iconic first album.Mark Andrews is a journalist from the UK now living in Belgium. The first musician he ever interviewed was Lemmy – for the Folkestone Gazette in October 2003. Most recently, he has interviewed Jon Spencer, Boss Hog, Mudhoney and The Scientists. He has written for the Middle East Times, Egypt Magazine, LeftLion, Flanders Today, The Quietus and Louder. This book grew out of two acclaimed articles he wrote about the Sisters of Mercy for The Quietus.Purchase a copy of “Paint My Name in Black and Gold” through Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Paint-My-Name-Black-Gold/dp/1800180381Purchase an e-book copy of “Paint My Name in Black and Gold” through Unbound Books: https://unbound.com/books/sistersofmercyPurchase Wayne Hussey's book "Salad Daze": https://www.amazon.com/Salad-Daze-Wayne-Hussey/dp/1785586602/refJoin the Heartland Sisters of Mercy Forum here: https://www.myheartland.co.ukJoin the Sisters of Mercy 1980-1985 Facebook group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/The-Sisters-Of-Mercy-1980-1985-Group-1704379173138423Listen to a playlist of the music discussed in this episode: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/77NASBGupvv58UuoJcoHy2?si=1e562f4a0dc748f5The Booked On Rock Website: www.bookedonrock.comFollow The Booked On Rock with Eric Senich:FACEBOOK: www.facebook.com/bookedonrockpodcastTWITTER: https://twitter.com/bookedonrockINSTAGRAM: www.instagram.com/bookedonrockpodcast/?hl=enSupport Your Local Bookstore!

When Yes ran into problems recording their tenth album in Paris at the end of 1979, it was almost the end. Yet in the 80s the band rallied, firstly as part of an unlikely collaboration with a new wave duo, then with 90125, the most successful album of their career, which spawned a number one hit in the USA with ‘Owner Of A Lonely Heart’. The band failed to capitalize on this success, however, lingering too long over its successor Big Generator and by the end of the decade, Yes had effectively split into two versions of the same band. With most authors concentrating on the group’s 1970s career, “Yes in the 1980s” looks in forensic detail at this relatively underexamined era of the band’s history, featuring rarely-seen photos researched by author David Watkinson. The book follows the careers of all nine significant members of the group during a turbulent decade which saw huge highs but also many lows. Not only does it consider the three albums the band itself made across the decade, but also the solo careers and other groups – including Asia, XYZ, The Buggles, Jon and Vangelis and GTR - formed by those musicians as the decade wound towards a reunion of sorts in the early 1990s.Stephen Lambe is an author, festival promoter and the director and founder of Sonicbond Publishing. His ten books include the best-selling “Citizens Of Hope And Glory – The Story Of Progressive Rock” and “Yes On Track: Every Album, Every Song”. David Watkinson is an author and collector, with a specific interest in Yes. His books include “Yes – Perpetual Change” and “Jon Anderson And The Warriors – The Road To Yes”.
