Guy Pratt came of age just as bass playing became sexy. Having dallied with punk legend Sylvain Sylvain, Pratt suddenly found himself on Top of the Pops and supporting David Bowie with smooth Australian outfit Icehouse. He became bass player to the stars, crawling from studio to bar and hotel to stadium Portakabin with the likes of Pink Floyd, Robert Palmer, Womack &Womack and Bryan Ferry. Guy has recorded with everyone from Madonna and Michael Jackson to McFly. He was in The Smiths for a week, and has travelled through customs in a wheelchair after a flight with Jimmy Page. Following the success of his live show at the 2005 Edinburgh Festival and the subsequent sell out tour of Australia, Guy Pratt’s narrates his bestselling book, My Bass and Other Animals, a witty, revealing but heartfelt memoir of life at the pointy end of the music business. When not playing with David Gilmour or Bryan Ferry, he continues to take the show around the world. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Guy Pratt.

Do what I say, and you´ll be what I am, is what my outdoor writer mentor told me many years ago when I just was getting started in my outdoor-writing career. Hearing those words and following that advice produced an outdoor writing career far bigger and better than I ever could have dreamed. ´´If you want black and white photography like I produce, do what I say, and the how and the why don´t matter,´´ Leonard LaRue, one of the greatest outdoor photographers who ever lived, told me. He was absolutely right because during his time he sold more outdoors photography than any other man alive and helped me sell more photography due to his advice. This same philosophy is true of successful bass fishing and life. If you want to become the best you can be, find someone who´s already become the best at what you want to do and follow his or her instructions. This is what I´ve done in my new book, Bass Pros´ Season by Season Tactics.

La parabola di un uomo che per molti è stato un dio e per tutti un re: Michael Jackson. Dalle origini umili, in una piccola casa di un´America ignorata dalle luci della ribalta, ai palcoscenici di tutto il mondo dove quelle luci erano tutte per lui, il divo, il ´´Re del Pop´´. Dalle tribolazioni insieme ai famelici fratelli, i Jackson 5, e al padre-padrone, a una carriera fulminante dove i record sono all´ordine del giorno. Michael Jackson è stato ed è ancora il ´´Re del Pop´´, ma era prima di tutto un uomo, spesso fragile, impaurito, a volte divorato dai sensi di colpa e dalla sua stessa bontà. In questo audioBook si svela il mistero di un uomo che ha sfidato i confini tra umanità e divinità, spesso riuscendo a superarli e, per questo, venendo altrettanto frequentemente punito. ´´Michael Jackson´´ fa parte della collana ´´Bio Rock´´. 1.

Derided for its conformity and consumerism, 1950s America paid a price in anxiety. Prosperity existed under the shadow of a mushroom cloud. Optimism wore a Bucky Beaver smile that masked worry over threats at home and abroad. But even dread could not quell the revolutionary changes taking place in virtually every form of mainstream music. Music historian James Wierzbicki sheds light on how the Fifties´ pervasive moods affected its sounds. Moving across genres established--pop, country, opera--and transfigured--experimental, rock, jazz--Wierzbicki delves into the social dynamics that caused forms to emerge or recede, thrive or fade away. Red scares and white flight, sexual politics and racial tensions, technological progress and demographic upheaval--the influence of each rooted the music of this volatile period to its specific place and time. Yet Wierzbicki also reveals the host of underlying connections linking that most apprehensive of times to our own uneasy present. The book is published by University of Illinois Press.´´The author successfully demonstrates the impact of social change upon Fifties music in a well-written and engaging way. Recommended.´´ (Library Journal)´´This fascinating book is accessible for students and general readers, even as Wierzbicki offers new insights that will be of interest to specialists as well.´´ (Gayle Sherwood Magee, author of Charles Ives Reconsidered)´´Wierzbicki is to be especially commended for his mastery of many sources and the way he has woven them together.´´ (Michael Broyles, author of Mavericks and Other Traditions in American Music) 1.
