Rolling Stones: Hackney Diamonds (2CD)

Read "Hackney Diamonds (2CD)" reviewed by Doug Collette

The Rolling Stones have taken some risks of greater and lesser proportion over the course of their sixty-plus- year career, but perhaps no gamble is so great as the decision by the surviving members of the band to continue on after the passing of drummer Charlie Watts.

Aaron Neville: My True Story

Read "My True Story" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Dopo aver reinterpretato i classici della soul music (Bring It on Home) e del gospel (I Know I've Been Changed, prodotto da Allen Toussaint) era inevitabile che Aaron Neville si rivolgesse al repertorio del doo-wop, lo stile vocale nato negli anni cinquanta nelle strade di Harlem e Brooklyn che ebbe vastissima popolarità per tutto quel decennio ma le cui tracce arrivano fino ad oggi (lo hanno reinterpretato a vario titolo Amy Winehouse, Duffy, Jamie Cullum, Kylie Minogue e altri). Il ...

Life Keith Richards with James FoxHardback, 564 pages ISBN: 978 0 316 03438 8 Little, Brown2010 Life is a last laugh lullaby. In guitarist Keith Richards' well-received and heavily hyped reflection, the defiant rock icon, humble blues ambassador and momma's boy family anchor keeps a laid back focus on the world around him since childhood.
