POP by Tony Scherman
Released: Nov. 1, 2009

"Both an indelible portrait of the artist as a weird young man and an elegant survey of one of the most vital and revolutionary periods in American popular culture—a richly detailed, kaleidoscopic treat."
Former Musician and Life editor Scherman (Backbeat: Earl Palmer's Story, 2000) and Rolling Stone founding editor Dalton (Edie Factory Girl, 2006, etc.) offer a comprehensive reappraisal of the '60s heyday of pop-art savant Andy Warhol. Read full book review >
BACKBEAT by Tony Scherman
Released: April 1, 1999

Music critic Scherman (editor, The Rock Musician, not reviewed, etc.) presents the story of drummer Earl Palmer, one of the foundational figures in rock, who witnessed the changes in race relations and the world of popular music from the vaudeville days to the present. Read full book review >
