Catch a wave : the rise, fall & redemption of the Beach Boys' Brian Wilson by Peter Ames Carlin( Book )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,079 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Brian Wilson was the visionary behind America's most successful and influential rock band. As the leader of the Beach Boys, he sold 100 million records and built a catalog of songs that continues to define the sound and feel of American popular music. He also became one of the culture's most mysterious and tragic figures--but after spending years lost in a wilderness of despair, Wilson has fought his way back to productivity. Now journalist Carlin, who conducted in-depth interviews with dozens of sources and listened to hundreds of hours of unreleased studio recordings and live music, tells a uniquely American story of the band, the music, and the culture the Beach Boys both sang about and helped create.--From publisher description
Homeward bound : the life of Paul Simon by Peter Ames Carlin( Book )

15 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 886 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To have been alive during the last sixty years is to have lived with the music of Paul Simon. The boy from Queens scored his first hit record in 1957, just months after Elvis Presley ignited the rock era. As the songwriting half of Simon & Garfunkel, his work helped define the youth movement of the sixties. On his own in the seventies, Simon made radio-dominating hits. He kicked off the eighties by reuniting with Garfunkel to perform for half a million New Yorkers in Central Park. Five years later, Simon's album Graceland sold millions and spurred an international political controversy. And he's not finished: Simon's latest album, Stranger to Stranger, debuted at No.3 on the Billboard album charts when it was released in June 2016. The grandchild of Jewish emigrants from Galicia in the Austro-Hungarian empire, the 75-year-old singer-songwriter has sold more than one hundred million records, won fifteen Grammy awards, and been installed into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice. Simon has also played significant, often controversial, roles in many major events of the last sixty years: from Tin Pan Alley to Spotify; from the civil rights era to the antiapartheid movement; from the Monterey Pop Festival to Saturday Night Live, Woody Allen's Annie Hall, the rebirth of the modern Broadway musical, and beyond. A life story with the scope and power of an epic novel, Peter Ames Carlin's Homeward Bound reveals one of the most influential popular artists in American history as he has never been seen before: as a boy and a man, an artist and a businessman, a lover and husband, and the living animation of America's ever-changing definitions of personal and cultural identity.--From dust jacket
Beyond the limits : a woman's triumph on Everest by Stacy Allison( Book )

9 editions published between 1993 and 1999 in English and held by 605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Beyond the Limits, Stacy Allison provides a rare close-up of the elite mountain-climbing world: the idiosyncratic, dedicated individuals who make up the international climbing community; the political and strategic maneuvering before and during an expedition; the grueling training and single-minded ambition; and the constant danger and pressing threat of death. Stacy describes how life feels at 29,028 feet, when cells don't regenerate and the body literally begins to waste away; what she thinks about while clinging to the side of a granite face by her fingers or when an avalanche comes crashing down on top of her; what it's like to look death in the face but refuse to give up. Beyond the Limits is a suspenseful, triumphant adventure story, a spirited tribute to the determination of one woman, and an uplifting primer for anyone who has ever faced a mountain - physical or metaphorical - and reached for its summit
