Odessa is an oil town in the western part of Texas that is home to the Permian High School Panthers, the football team with the best winning record. The city's economy is in a tailspin, but football is the one thing that brings all the people of Odessa together, and on Friday nights, as many as 20,000 people fill Permian's football stadium to watch Coach Gary Gaines lead the team to victory. And in Odessa, a football victory is prized above all else. The players ponder the fact that there is little future in their hometown ... and that a championship season can be as much a burden as a triumph

Il est l'un des batteurs les plus singuliers et polyvalents apparus au cours de ces vingt dernières années sur la scène musicale.

50 unsung heroes of the guitar( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Everyone knows the legends - Hendrix, Page, Clapton, Beck, and all the other six-string giants - but the evolution of guitarcraft wasn't forged purely by uber-famous players with large cultural footprints. Scores of lesser-known pioneers such as Tommy Bolin, Danny Cedrone, Tampa Red, and Sister Rosetta Tharpe contributed vast numbers of licks, riffs, solos, tones, compositions, techniques, and musical concepts that inspired generations of guitarists and advanced the art of playing guitar. Their stories are as critical to modern guitar music as is electricity or amplification. Any guitarist seeking to devise a unique and individual sound should study the wacky, off-kilter, unfamiliar, and criminally underutilized creative concepts of the unsung greats, straight from the pages of Guitar Player magazine."--Publisher's description
