Publisher's Comments

Younger (singer, songwriter, and author) chronicles the rise, fall, and rebirth of Arthur Alexander, an African-American singer-songwriter whose music influenced many of the rock and soul musicians of the 1960s. Though his name is not well known today, Alexander's songs were made famous by such artists as the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and Bob Dylan. Younger gives attention to the state of the music industry during Alexander's life, the role of racism as a social force, Alexander's talent, and of course, the music. Annotation c.
