    About "Dave Thompson"

    1. Dave Thompson

      English author Dave Thompson has spent his entire working life writing biographies of other people, but is notoriously reluctant to write one for himself Unlike the subjects of some of his best known books, he was neither raised by ferrets nor stolen from gypsies He has never appeared on reality TV although he did reach the semi finals of a UK pop quiz when he was sixteen , plays no musical instruments and he can t dance, either.However, he has written well over one hundred books in a career that is almost as old as U2 s whom he saw in a club when they first moved to London, and memorably described as okay, but they ll never get any place Similar pronouncements published on the future prospects of Simply Red, Pearl Jam and Wang Chung oh, and Curiosity Killed The Cat as well probably explain why he has never been anointed a Pop Culture Nostradamus Although the fact that he was around to pronounce gloomily on them in the first place might determine why he was recently described as a veteran music journalist Raised on rock, powered by punk, and still convinced that American Pie was written by Fanny Farmer and is best played with Meatloaf, Thompson lists his five favorite artists as old and obscure his favorite album is whispered quietly and he would like to see Richard and Linda Thompson s I Want To See The Bright Lights Tonight installed as the go to song for the sad, sappy ending for every medical drama on TV.Kurt Cobain, Phil Collins, Alice Cooper, Joan Jett, David Bowie, John Travolta, Eric Clapton, Jackson Browne, Bob Marley, Roger Waters and the guy who sang that song in the jelly commercial are numbered among the myriad artists about whom Thompson has written books he has contributed to the magazines Rolling Stone, Alternative Press, Mojo and Melody Maker and he makes regular guest appearances on WXPN s Highs in the Seventies show.

    1. Basically, this is like a lit review for the outline of a first draft of a thesis on Patti Smith s life and career If you re a fan of hers, there are undoubtedly other works out there you could read which would be satisfying.What I liked about this book I learned some stuff about Patti Smith I didn t know What I didn t like about this book I don t think even one period or comma was original material The bibliography for this rather short book was HUGE, because the author clearly cannibalized th [...]


    2. i was disappointed with this biography i found that it was factual and statistical just kind ve wooden and hollow i noticed also there was a lot of rehashing quotes taken from previous biographies about her i guess after reading just kids in patti smiths own write you get to know her soul than any other time However because i ve read so much on her this book was going over the same ground without any new insights Therefore for anyone who doesn t know much about her i suggest them starting here [...]


    3. I found the author referenced other works a lot and there was a lot of name dropping When I read a bio I like to feel in touch with their process Some bios are written so well you can almost be there or imagine what it was like to have been them at that point in their life I didn t get this from this book so it was a little stale, so I am carrying on.


    4. I was introduced to Patti Smith as an adolescent listening to the Gone Again album I absolutely fell in love with her, but I never truly understood her.cially her early work I read Just Kids last year and started to see a little of what I had missed Dave Thompson has done an excellent job of laying out the facts while not excluding the emotion of her career She is an absolute inspiration and now my lists of to read to watch and to listen are overflowing.I realize that for those who followed her [...]


    5. Patti Smith is a very interesting woman to read about That being said, this book read like a textbook Factual and statistical mainly The author would also mention something, but never finish the thought He also solicited his unnecessary opinions in less than necessary places Your opinion of President Bush plays little to no part of this narrative.


    6. Bios of people I know of from earlier in my own life, like this, Willie Mays, etc are oddly depressing They may be good books, but they don t add all that much to my existing knowledge in many cases What they mostly do is remind me that I was 20 a long time ago.


    7. A nice look into the career of a fascinating artist What I liked most about this biography was that it was a sensationalized look into Smith s life, but rather a look into her career as a poet turned punk rock star.


    8. Unlike just kids, you get a real perspective on Patti s life as a musician More than a young lover partner in crime with Mapplethrope, she is an incredibly accomplished rock and roll girl And we see which choices she made and continues to make as life goes on.
