Let's Go Crazy

by Alan Light

From the former senior editor of Rolling Stone and author of The Holy or the Broken, called "thoughtful and illuminating" by The New York Times, a new book on the unlikely coming-to-be of Prince's now legendary album.Purple Rain is a song, an album, and a film--each one a commercial success and cultural milestone. How did this semi-autobiographical musical masterpiece that blurred R&B, pop, dance, and rock sounds come to alter the recording landscape and become an enduring touchstone for successive generations of fans? Purple Rain is widely considered to be among the most important albums in music history and often named the best soundtrack of all time. It sold over a million copies in its first week and blasted to #1 on the charts, where it would remain for a full six months and eventually sell over 20 million copies worldwide. It spun off three huge hit singles, won Grammys and an Oscar, and took Prince from pop star to legend. Coinciding with the thirtieth anniversary year of Purple Rain's release, acclaimed music journalist Alan Light takes a timely look at the making and incredible popularizing of this once seemingly impossible project. With impeccable research and in-depth interviews with people who witnessed Prince's audacious vision becoming a reality, Light reveals how a rising but not yet established artist from the Midwest was able not only to get Purple Rain made, but deliver on his promise to conquer the world.

Let's Go Mad: A Year Abroad in Search of Utopia and Enlightenment

by Rob Binkley Murphy Hooker

Despite his success, Rob fantasizes about shedding the shackles of his American Dream to live wild and free like his hero Hunter S. Thompson. As Rob's world begins to fall apart, a visit from his Zen madman of a best friend, Brian, convinces him to hatch an escape plan and follow his bliss for authentic life experiences. Will he find the meaning of life while backpacking through twenty-three countries, or will he and Brian go mad wallowing in the extreme debauchery the world has to offer?A tribute to gonzo beat literature, Let's Go Mad is the amazing true story of their year abroad backpacking across the globe on a sideways search in all the wrong places, with all the wrong people, at all the wrong times. After Brian's lust for life inspires Rob to embrace his inner lunatic, pushing the limits of sanity (and their friendship) into one merry blur-they come to realize there's more to life than mere mad experience. They must have a "personal renaissance" or die trying.
