(Book). This is a vivid and rollicking account of The Band's journey across three decades. Spanning the history of American rock and boasting a supporting cast that includes Dylan, Janis Joplin, and U2, the book brilliantly captures the raw magic and complex personalities of a group George Harrison called "the best band in the history of the universe." This revised U.S. edition includes a postscript, together with an obituary of Rick Danko and a brand-new interview with Robbie Robertson.Críticas:
"The best band in the history of the universe" (George Harrison)
"A fine meditation on the Canadians who mythologised America" (Esquire)
"It is the great virtue of Across the Great Divide that Hoskyns has managed to make the less glamorous business of being a band come so alive. The attention to fluctuations in group chemistry and morale, on stage and in the studio, is steeped in the author's engaging fascination with the minutiae of how rock music gets made. It makes for a surprisingly refreshing and admirable read" (Robert Sandall Sunday Times)
"Barney Hoskyns clearly relishes his task. Indulging in the same colloquialisms as his subjects one moment, passing critically astute judgements the next, he takes us from sleazy one-nighters backing up Ronnie Hawkins to high-rolling one-nighters firing up Bob Dylan, and beyond" (Bobby Surf NME)
"Impeccably researched and elegantly written" --(Charlie Gillet, author of The Sound of the City)
