    PDF/EPUB Americana Epub ó í army of tennessee.co americana free, Americana MOBIRay Davies’ memoir regarding his affair with America and its culture is great on so many levels The book works on different platforms The major theme of this memoir is regarding his life or thoughts on America which makes it sort of a perfect travel journal When I hear the two words toget

    PDF/EPUB Americana Epub ó í army of tennessee.co americana free, Americana MOBII'm a big Kinks fan even up through the Arista years the MCA and Sony years are best forgotten Ray Davies has written some of the most empathetic and beautiful songs in the rock canon His first book X Ray detailed the origins of the band through Village Green Preservation Society with a good deal of poignancy Unfortunately this volume which covers 1968 through the present is ill formed and lacking in insight Half of th

    PDF/EPUB Americana Epub ó í army of tennessee.co americana free, Americana MOBII had a good friend in England sadly deceased now who considered the Kinks one of the most “brilliant” rock ‘n’ roll bands of all time right up there with the Beatles and Pink Floyd I’m a longtime fan of the Kinks too but I also rank them as one of the great “feuding brothers” bands like Creedence Clearwater and the Everly Brothers and Oasis The Davies brothers Ray and Dave who formed the working class band back in 1964 haven't performed together since 1996 and seldom miss a chance to beat each other up in the media I never read X RAY THE UNAUTHORIZED AUTOBIOGRAPHY which is about 20 years old now so I approached this scrapbooky herky jerky narrative with an open mind It’s obvious that the Kinks’ singersongwriter Ray Davies fell in love with America or with its “

    PDF/EPUB Americana Epub ó í army of tennessee.co americana free, Americana MOBIAs a lifelong Kinks fan but one who likes real bios and not dramatic fictional bios like X Ray I was looking forward to this but it's really not all that Ray Davies may be a genius but he's a very guarded non intimate one and that comes through in his writing You get the feel

    PDF/EPUB Americana Epub ó í army of tennessee.co americana free, Americana MOBIDuring his book talk at Norwich Playhouse on Saturday 10 May 2014 Ray Davies says ‘I didn’t use a ghostwriter I could have done’ This isn’t news to me because I’ve read it and there’s no doubt in my mind he weighed and wrote every wordThere is nothing inherently wrong with rock stars using ghosts for their memoirs These books composed from hours of recorded interviews are filled with pleasing anecdotes captured in the speaking voice of the ‘author’ and are often eminently readable Keith Richards virtually shared credit with his ghost James Fox The problem with the ghost written conceit is that when an artist comes along who actually does write their own book – and in doing so creates a work of dignity worthy of being read – there’s no way of telling the difference by looking at the coverIn ‘Americana’ Davies tells t

    PDF/EPUB Americana Epub ó í army of tennessee.co americana free, Americana MOBIThe highlights for me were Davies' reflection on touring writing recording and navigating the industry in the 1970's His depiction of the medical care he received after being shot in the leg was also engaging The story gets a bit choppy at times He hops from deep reflection about what was happening with the band in the 70's and early 80's ahead to the period around the shooting and it can be jarring when you are highly interested in one or the other of the time periods For those who love the Kinks but don't already know a lot about the band's career after Muswell Hillbillies this is a great read
