Bill Wyman's Blues Odyssey: A Journey to Music's Heart and Soul - hardcover

ISBN: 0751334421

[SR: 492652], Gebundene Ausgabe, [EAN: 9780751334425], DK, DK, Book, [PU: DK], DK, Auf seine alten Tage hat Bill Wyman einen Kreativschub nach dem anderen. Erst versüßte sich der langjährige Stones-Bassist nach seinem Abschied von der Band das Rentnerdasein mit einigen der schönsten Seite-Drei-Blondinen der Insel, dann brachte er mit Stone Alone seine Autobiografie heraus und gründete, zusammen mit Gary Brooker, Georgie Fame, Albert Lee und anderen Altkapazitäten, die Rhythm Kings, eine Blues- und Jazz All Star Band. Mit dieser fabelhaften Anthologie über die Geschichte des Blues jedoch, die alle Voraussetzungen zu einem Standardwerk mitbringt, dürfte sich der schweigsame Bill ein bleibendes Denkmal gesetzt haben. Annähernd 400 Jahre (Blues)geschichte ziehen an uns vorbei, von den Anfängen des Sklavenhandels im Jahr 1619, über die Fronarbeit auf den Baumwollfeldern des Mississippi Delta, bis hin zur modernen Variante dieser amerikanischsten aller Musikformen, verkörpert durch Statthalter wie Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Winter, Stevie Ray Vaughan und Eric Clapton. Das Buch ist ein Fest fürs Auge; viele unveröffentlichte Fotos aus Bills Privatarchiv dokumentieren die Lebensläufe (oft auch Leidenswege) von 40 Blueslegenden, von Robert Johnson bis Blind Willie McTell. Jedem Musikerporträt ist eine Liste der wichtigsten Aufnahmen zur Seite gestellt, einzelne Songs wie "Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out" werden präzise durchleuchtet. Zeittafeln und Karten sorgen für den historischen Hintergrund. Neben wunderschönen Reproduktionen historischer Plattenlabels- und Covers, werden auch Gitarren-Afficionados angesichts der abgebildeten Raritäten feuchte Augen bekommen. Wymans Odyssee, die im englischen Original belassen wurde, führt in verlassene Bahnhöfe, über endlose Highways, lässt verkrachte Existenzen und Heroen aufmarschieren -- und fügt sich so zu einem lebendigen Bild dieser innerlichsten aller Musikformen. Im Vorwort gesteht Bill Wyman, so schlau als wie zuvor zu sein, was den innersten magischen Kern des Blues anbelangt: "That the Blues that keep you worried are the Blues you can't explain", wie Tarter und Gay in ihrem Song aus dem Jahr 1929 schon feststellten. Und dennoch hat Bill sein Bestes gegeben, seine Odyssee direkt in unseren Herzen enden zu lassen.
