I'm Tyler Lindsey, and until recently, I had an okay apartment, an okay girlfriend, and an okay job as a bellboy at a respectable Boston hotel. Then rock star Chris Raiden died right before I brought his room service-stiffing me on the tip, by the way-and my life went to hell. My fifteen minutes of fame was more like five seconds, and my girlfriend left me in disgust. But even worse-Chris is haunting me. Not the room where he died, like a normal ghost. No, somehow he's stuck to me and is insisting on taking care of a bunch of unfinished business in California. So now I have to traipse across the country with the world's most narcissistic ghost. But ... I keep having these weird thoughts. Thoughts about how much I like the way he makes me laugh. Thoughts where I kind of want to kiss the emo-narcissist, even though he's a ghost and an asshole and I can't touch him anyway. And even if I could, what will happen when he finishes his business and nothing's keeping him here anymore?"

A book of short stories. The title Sex Drugs & Rock 'n' Soul is derived from the first three stories in this varied collection. In the first, Prof Freeze lectures to a hall of sleepy psychology students on the importance of Sex, but not all is as it seems. The second story covers the perilous life of two drug runners in Cuba who are desperate to escape to the USA for a better life. Rock and Soul are two individuals who missed fame in the music industry and struggle for survival as frustrated talent scouts at Glitzy Records. The journey continues through the genres of humour, crime, ghost, tragedy, science fiction and romance.

In Tobi Stegmanns Küche heißt es: Schnitzel klopfen zu wilder Rockmusik, Schokobrownies anrichten zu emotionalen Balladen. Sein Rezept: kochen mit Musik – und mit Liebe zum Produkt und zur Region. Sein erstes Kochbuch wartet dann auch mit virtuosen Kompositionen auf: Saisonale 3-Gänge-Klassiker in je zwei Varianten, einmal in einer „Tobi-Freestyle-Version“, einmal in der „on stage-Variante“. Da wird dann z.B. der Klassiker „Sauerbraten mit Spätzle und Speck-Rosenkohl“ einmal zu „Filetspitzen in Zwiebel-Speck-Sauce mit Bandnudeln und gebratenem Rosenkohl“ (Freestyle, also Alltagsversion) und einmal zu „Flanksteak mit Balsamicojus, Pasta carbonara und Rosenkohllaub“ (on stage, also Angeber-Variante). Je nach Können des Gastgebers und beabsichtigter Wirkung. Was bei all dem Genuss und der Raffinesse nicht auf der Strecke bleibt: Der Spaß am Kochen, der Umgang mit guten Produkten und das Mitsingen zum Lieblingssong. Und so wird Tobi Stegmann, der Liebling der Herzen bei der „The Taste“-Staffel 2015, auch der Liebling in der Küche.

From Queen Latifa to Count Basie, Madonna to Monk, Hole in Our Soul: The Loss of Beauty and Meaning in American Popular Music traces popular music back to its roots in jazz, blues, country, and gospel through the rise in rock 'n' roll and the emergence of heavy metal, punk, and rap. Yet despite the vigor and balance of these musical origins, Martha Bayles argues, something has gone seriously wrong, both with the sound of popular music and the sensibility it expresses. Bayles defends the tough, affirmative spirit of Afro-American music against the strain of artistic modernism she calls 'perverse.' She describes how perverse modernism was grafted onto popular music in the late 1960s, and argues that the result has been a cult of brutality and obscenity that is profoundly anti-musical. Unlike other recent critics of popular music, Bayles does not blame the problem on commerce. She argues that culture shapes the market and not the other way around. Finding censorship of popular music "both a practical and a constitutional impossibility," Bayles insists that "an informed shift in public tastes may be our only hope of reversing the current malignant mood."

In the enhanced e-book edition of Kicking and Dreaming you'll find an exclusive new audio track, "Trash Bag Slippers (Trust Me)", written and performed by Ann and Nancy Wilson, as well as 9 exclusive videos featuring intimate interviews with the sisters about growing up as the daughters of a Marine, Ann's struggles with a speech impediment, the challenges of working together as sisters, the impact of MTV in the 80s and more. Two sisters. Two voices. One Heart. The mystery of "Magic Man." The wicked riff of "Barracuda." The sadness and beauty of "Alone." The raw energy of "Crazy On You." These songs, and so many more, are part of the fabric of American music. Heart, fronted by Ann and Nancy Wilson, has given fans everywhere classic, raw, and pure badass rock and roll for more than three decades. As the only sisters in rock who write their own music and play their own instruments, Ann and Nancy have always stood apart—certainly from their male counterparts but also from their female peers. By refusing to let themselves and their music be defined by their gender, and by never allowing their sexuality to overshadow their talent, the Wilson sisters have made their mark, and in the process paved the way for many of today's female artists. In Kicking and Dreaming, Ann and Nancy, with the help of critically acclaimed and bestselling music biographer Charles R. Cross, recount a journey that has taken them from a gypsy-like life as the children of a globe-trotting Marine to the frozen back roads of Vancouver, where they got their start as a band, to the pinnacle of success—and sometimes excess. In these pages, readers will learn the truth about the relationship that inspired "Magic Man" and "Crazy On You," the turmoil of inter-band romances gone awry, the reality of life on the road as single women and then as mothers of small children, and the thrill of performing and in some cases partying with the likes of the Rolling Stones, Stevie Nicks, Van Halen, Def Leppard, and other rock legends. It has not always been an easy path. Ann struggled with and triumphed over a childhood stutter, body image, and alcoholism; Nancy suffered the pain and disappointment of fertility issues and a failed marriage but ultimately found love again and happiness as a mom. Through it all, the sisters drew from the strength of a family bond that trumps everything else, as told in this intimate, honest, and uniquely female take on the rock and roll life. Throughout their career, Ann and Nancy have never found an answer to the question they are most frequently asked: "What is it like to be a woman in rock and roll?" Kicking and Dreaming puts that question to bed, once and for all. Please note that due to the large file size of these special features this enhanced e-book may take longer to download then a standard e-book.
