Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A labor of love, The Ties That Bind is an eneyclopedic examination of the people, places, events, and recordings significant in the artistry and thirty-plus year career of one of America's most eminent and enduring rock icons. Ranging from the Academy Awards to Warren Zevon and all points in between (including the mighty E Street Band), the eneyclopedia examines all aspects of the Spingsteen universe, including artistic, intellectual, and personal relationships, influences and the influenced, significant others, career evolution, recordings, side ventures, political forays, geographic bases, and, of course, legendary shows and venues. With 500 entries (plus sidebars) and 100 photos (many previously unpublished), this is the first and only book to take a systematic approach to objectively chronicling Springsteen's life and music. Plus, The Ties That Bind provides lists of concert apperances, television appearances, and E Street Band tribute bands and tribute albums: The text of Springsteen's Rock G Roll Hall of Fame Speeches: and a lyric index, amid other comprehensive indexing. Led by veteran rock critic and media man-about-town Gary Graff, the team of writers includes Chris Phillips, impresario of Backstreets, the preeminent fanzine and Website; Chicago-based Steve Knopper, who covers the music business for Rolling Stone magazine and has writen for Spin, Entertainment Weekly, the Chicago Tribune, and many others; New Jersey native Robert Santelli, director of the Experience Music Project in Seattle and a collaborator with Springsteen on Songs, the complete collection of Springsteen's recorded album lyrics; Dan Durchholtz, a frequent contributor to Stereophile mangazine, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Chicago Tribune, and radio station KMOX in St. Louis; and Jetfrey Zaslow, a columnist for The Wall Street Journal who previously, as advice columnist at the Chicago Sun-Times, often advised readers by quoting a Springsteen lyric. Behind the scenes, staff enthusiasm for the subject amounts to nearly 100 years of devoted (some would say obsessive) Springsteen appreciation. So we've done our research. Badly Drawn Boy contributes the nicely written foreword.
