Hardcore troubadour : the life and near death of Steve Earle by Lauren St. John( Book )
15 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 483 libraries worldwide
If Steve Earle weren't a living, breathing person he'd be a character in a blues song, a gifted rebel who drank too much, lost his career and almost all of his women in a blizzard of heroin and crack-cocaine addiction, and lived wildly and extravagantly on the wrong side of the law. Along the way, Earle has welded rock to country, the Beatles to Springsteen, Celtic to Americana, punk to bluegrass and has produced multiple Grammy-nominated albums and one enduring classic: Guitar Town. With a huge capacity for self-destruction that matches his appetite for life in all its extremes, he is a storyteller and songwriter of rare skill and force whose sincerity echoes through all his work. Steve Earle survived it all, and he came back with an artistic and personal vision intact, determined to change society for the better even as he seemed set to live his life for the worse.--From publisher description
