Blues & Chaos
The Music Writing of Robert Palmer
Palmer’s extraordinary knowledge and boundless love of music were evident in all his writing. He was an authority on rock ‘n’ roll, blues, jazz, punk, avant-garde, and world music—often discovering new artists and trends years (even decades) before they hit the mainstream. Now, noted music writer Anthony DeCurtis has compiled the best pieces from Palmer’s oeuvre and presents them here, in one compelling volume.
A member of the elite group of great rock critics who emerged in the 1960s and 1970s, Robert Palmer possessed an industry vision so complete that, as DeCurtis writes, “it’s almost as if, if you read Bob, you didn’t need to read anyone else.” Blues & Chaos features some his most memorable pieces, arranged by theme and genre, including gripping stories about John Lennon, Led Zeppelin, Moroccan trance music, Miles Davis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Philip Glass, and Muddy Waters.
Wonderfully entertaining, infused with passion, and deeply inspiring, Blues & Chaos is a must for music fans everywhere.
