内容紹介

In 1974, at the age of seventeen, author Glenn Berger served as Schlepper and apprentice to the legendary recording engineer Phil Ramone at New York City s A&R Studios, and was witness to music history on an almost daily and nightly basis as pop and rock icons such as Paul Simon, Bob Dylan, Mick Jagger, Frank Sinatra, Burt Bacharach, Bette Midler, and James Brown performed their hit-making magic, honed their sound, strutted their stuff, bared their souls, and threw epic tantrums. In this memoir, full of revelatory and previously unknown anecdotal observations of these musical giants, Glenn recounts how he quickly learned the ropes to move up from schlepperhood to assistant to the tyrannical Ramone, and eventually, to become a recording engineer superstar himself. Not only is Never Say No to A Rock Star a fascinating, hilarious and poignant behind-the-scenes look of this musical Mecca, but Berger, now a prominent psychologist, looking back through the prism of his youthful experience and his years working as a counselor and therapist, provides a telling and honest examination of the nature of fame and success and the corollaries between creativity, madness and self-destruction."

レビュー

"Glenn takes the reader to the universe of the great A&R studio in New York where some of the most memorable music of the past century was made. Congratulations, Glenn, you tell it the way it was. And I loved reliving it with you." Judy Collins, Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and author"

"A fascinating and meticulously detailed virtual tour of life in the recording studio . . . It is also a collection of juicy thumbnail sketches of the show-biz titans . . . Dylan, Jagger, Sinatra, Fosse." Don Shewey, journalist, author, Sam Shepard"

"This book is a delicious tonic for children of the 60 s, 70 s, 80's and children yet to come." Kevin Odegard, guitar player on Blood on the Tracks; co-author, A Simple Twist of Fate: Bob Dylan and the Making of Blood on the Tracks"

"With humor and self-deprecation, Berger shares a glimpse of life behind the scenes with artists including the New York Dolls, and Solomon Burke." Publishers Weekly"

"Berger s studio revelations can t help but be enthralling: it s only rock n roll, but we still like it." Charmaine Chan, South China Morning Post"

"This is the rare 'insider' book on the rock music business in its heyday. Berger s perspective that of a young, earnest kid from Brooklyn...is refreshingly honest, and told without guile. Highly recommended." thevinylpress.com"

"Not only are the stories he relates interesting and even somewhat scandalous (and definitely juicy), there s a special insight and humanity in this book that makes it a joy to read." Bob Rush, forgottenhits60s.blogspot.com"

"Former whizzkid engineer Glenn Berger has skilfully captured 'the entire recording experience, the people, the music, the personalities, the tension, the magic' in this finely-detailed account of his career with top NYC producer Phil Ramone." Kris Needs, Record Collector"

While we can never judge a book by its title, we can often gain something, some hint of what is to come. When I picked up Glenn Berger's NEVER SAY NO TO A ROCK STAR, I assumed we'd delve into some juicy 1970s New York studio life: fêted stars, unsung heroes, and backstage antics/anguish. I was right. And I was wrong. I would have been satisfied with that pedestrian format as long as it was a good story well told. But here we get a little more, something deeper, broader, and ultimately more meaningful. Berger lays out who he is--and was--layering the blood, sweat, tears, and humor of being a young studio apprentice. It's not only treats like Mick Jagger's solo, Bette Midler's date, and Bob Fosse's appeal, we're also taken on the human condition ride. Berger doesn't shy away from bringing the big questions and mediations into the mix--thankfully without sounding like a yoga instructor.

But it lives up to its title, too: when he dishes up dirty deeds, huge egos, chances missed, and sleep deprivation for art's sake, it is Cordon Bleu funny and satisfying. I laughed aloud in parts too numerous to mention. You cannot help but question an entire decade's taste with "You Light Up My Life" and Glenn's excoriation of it is funny and wise. In equal parts painful and funny is his fine critique of PERFORMANCE, a film starring Mick Jagger...told to Mick Jagger. (I was astounded that we'd both watched that movie the same number of times at the same impressionable age).

Berger's tenure at A&R Studios and natural musicality hits the right buttons and pushes the right knobs to affect a balanced tone to the debacle, the madness and the art, and make sense of his journey. Here's to you, Max.

Glenn Berger really nailed it. I felt like I was in the recording studio with all these greats. The observations were funny, wry, and exceptionally poignant. He really does the reader a great service by showing the inside of a hidden world. Sincere thanks.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Say Yes to This Book 2016/7/11

One of the best books I ever read about rock musicians was the one written by a Beatles' music engineer Here, There and Everywhere: My Life Recording the Music of the Beatles. So I was looking forward to this book and it didn't disappoint. Berger contrasts his own personal journey through harrowing and amazing sessions with legends like Paul Simon, Mick Jagger and Bob Fosse and perfectly captures the insanity of the 70's music scene. Achieves a great balance with this technique. Many unforgettable anecdotes and very sorry about Bette Midler, Glenn.

As the daughter of a famous musician, I was born, raised, and came of age while working in the New York City music business. Phil Ramone -- Glenn’s mentor, and a main character in this book -- was one of my father’s closest friends and co-creators, and one of my four "godfathers." Although Glenn doesn’t mention me, I was a kid working in the booking office the day Glenn first walked into A&R Recording; I'd already been employed there for two years. I remember working with Glenn for a few months until I left the studio for a record company, and I know personally many of the people about whom he writes. So, Glenn’s up-close-and-personal perspective is incredibly familiar to me.

I devoured NEVER SAY NO in a few days, only laying it down when I had to work, eat, or sleep. Glenn’s experiences are entertaining, almost ludicrous -- but that absurdity makes for an accurate portrayal of the music industry, particularly in the sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll 1970’s. Glenn’s candor gives his book resonance for those of us who were there, and will be scrumptiously revealing for those who might wish they’d been there.

In this slice of music industry history entwined with Glenn’s unique exploits, no one’s foibles are spared, not even Glenn’s; an honesty which must have been made more accessible by his shift from recording engineer to psychotherapist. His realizations at the end of the book are reflective of an understanding about artists most do not achieve -- unless you’ve lived the life and done the work.

Whenever anyone asks me what it was like to work at A&R Recording, I’ll absolutely refer them to this book...even after I've written my own!

I bought the book on a whim figured it would be a simple read. But I was wrong. What a great book.

Glen has a great writing technique that flows and easily paints the picture. In my opinion as someone who owns thousands of books, his writing style is in the top ten.
First of this is not fiction or some story about someone life, well it is somewhat but it focuses on music recording in the 70’s and Glen’s life in the studio. Myself being a musician and studio buff appreciated all the little details Glen put into the book describing the studio and everything.

If anyone knows music and studios, Columbia and then A&R are some of the great US studios heard on a ton of albums. Like Sound City was on the west coast, A&R was the place on the east coast. Phil Ramone is a legend and to hear Glen talk about his work with him was exciting. No sugar coating with Glen.

I was sad when the book came to an end as I wanted more. Glen blending life philosophy into the story and tied everything together nicely. When I read a book and have to pause and look into nowhere and take a moment to think about what the author just said, is the mark of great writing. When a book not only entertains you but also inspires you its something special.

Well done Glen and what an awesome life, looking back, you embarked on in the early 70’s!!!

Thank you for taking the time and effort to pen a great book!
