Books Info:

Live Fast, Die Young free pdf Disappointed to learn that Hotel California isn't actually in the phone book, radio producers Chris and Joe resolve to seek out the true spirit of rock and roll America. Roof down and stereo up, they drive coast to coast on a mission to 'live the music'. They will sell their souls to the devil on the same crossroads as Robert Johnson, taste the loneliness of the 'Wichita Lineman' (and the fried peanut butter sandwich that finished off The King), hang out with the spirit of Johnny Cash in his own front room and, sitting on a jetty by an alligator-infested lake, sing 'Happy Birthday' to country-rock musician Gram Parsons. But first they must learn the ukulele, grow preposterous facial hair and fail to get into the Chateau Marmont with a rising popstar - and that's just day one. It's a tale of friendship tested to the limit, great melodies, perfect lyrics and noble myths.
