The story behind The Dark Side of the Moon is now illuminated by journalist John Harris's exploration of the album's many secrets and the band's fractured history, including the mental collapse of group founder Syd Barrett.

Britpop! : cool Britannia and the spectacular demise of English rock by John Harris( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the early 1990s, England seemed as dominated by the Nirvana-led grunge explosion as the USA, but as the decade reached its midpoint, something unexpected happened. Led by the likes of Blur, Oasis, Elastica, and Suede, UK rock rediscovered its confidence, tapping back into the spirit of The Beatles and Stones, and giving rise to the phenomenon quickly tagged "Cool Britannia." Drawing on interviews from all the major bands, as well as key players in the music business, Britpop! charts the rise and fall of this cultural moment: its trail-blazing beginnings, its hedonistic peak, and it eventual drug-fueled demise. The result is a narrative, shot through with drama, excess, rivalry, and romance."--Book jacket

Hail! Hail! Rock 'n' roll by John Harris( Book )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and Swedish and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Do you want to learn how to play guitar in two pages? Have you ever wondered what goes into Marilyn Manson's backstage rider? Do you know what Jimi Hendrix might do with a Dallas-Arbiter Fuzz Face? John Harris's has written the ultimate guide to what Spinal Tap called 'the majesty of rock, the mystery of roll'. Gloriously irreverent, it is also satisfyingly definitive, with a list of every Glastonbury line up; a dictionary of obscure genres from Alt.country to Shoegazing; a brutally honest guide to the Beatles' solo albums; the surprising wit and wisdom of Shaun Ryder and Noel Gallagher; Bob Dylan's collected thoughts on Christianity and Keith Richards' less-collected thoughts on drugs; and a handy flow chart that shows you how to listen to all of Captain Beefheart's albums without going insane. From essential stage equipment to strange collaborations (Lou Reed and Kiss, anyone?) to the long, tragic journey of the rock moustache, this is an endlessly fascinating miscellany from one of the best music writers around."--Publisher's description
