<b>An insider biography of the Black Crowes by drummer and cofounder Steve Gorman</b><br /><br />For over two decades, The Black Crowes topped the charts and reigned supreme over the radio waves, even as hair bands, grunge, and hip-hop threatened to dethrone them. With hits like "Hard to Handle," "She Talks to Angels," and "Remedy," their massive success launched them to stardom in the early '90s, earning them a place among rock royalty. They were on the cover of <i>Rolling Stone, </i>MTV played their videos 24/7, and Generation X re-discovered the power of classic rock and blues by digging into multi-platinum classics like <i>Shake Your Money Maker </i>and <i>The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion</i>.<br /><br /> But stardom can be fleeting. For the Black Crowes, success slowly dwindled as the band members got caught up in the rock star world and lost sight of their musical ambition. Despite the drinking, drugs, and incessant fighting between Chris and Rich Robinson--the angriest brothers in rock and roll, with all due respect to Oasis and the Kinks--the band continued to tour until 2013. On any given night, they could be the best band you ever saw. (Or the most combative.) Then, one last rift caused by Chris Robinson proved insurmountable for the band to survive. After that, the Black Crowes would fly no more.<br /><br /> Founding member Steve Gorman was there for all of it--the coke and weed-fueled tours; the tumultuous recording sessions; the backstage hangs with legends like Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, and the Rolling Stones. As the band's drummer and voice of reason, he tried to keep the Black Crowes together musically--and in one piece emotionally. In his first-person history of the Black Crowes, <i>Hard To Handle</i>--the first ever account of this great American rock band's beginning, middle, and end--Gorman makes it clear just how impossible that job was. Fortunately, Gorman tells the tale with great insight, candor, and humor. They don't make bands like the Black Crowes anymore: crazy, brilliant, self-destructive, inspiring, and, ultimately, not built to last. But, man, what a ride it was while it lasted. <br /><br /><br />

<b>鈥淪ting鈥檚 gift for prose and reverence for language, nearly the equal of his musical gifts, shine on every page. Even when聽<i>Broken Music</i>聽addresses the quixotic life of an aspiring rock & roller, it reads like literature from a more rarified time when adults didn鈥檛 condescend to the vulgarities of pop culture.鈥澛犫€?lt;i>Rolling Stone</i></b><br /><br />Having been a songwriter most of my life, condensing my ideas and emotions into short rhyming couplets and setting them to music, I had never really considered writing a book. But upon arriving at the reflective age of fifty, I found myself drawn, for the first time, to write long passages that were as stimulating and intriguing to me as any songwriting I had ever done.<br /><br /> And so <i>Broken Music</i> began to take shape. It is a book about the early part of my life, from childhood through adolescence, right up to the eve of my success with the Police. It is a story very few people know.<br /><br /> I had no interest in writing a traditional autobiographical recitation of everything that鈥檚 ever happened to me. Instead I found myself drawn to exploring specific moments, certain people and relationships, and particular events which still resonate powerfully for me as I try to understand the child I was, and the man I became.

Book two, <em>The Inner Life of Animals</em>, is available now, and the third book, <em>The Secret Wisdom of Nature</em>, is coming in Spring 2019.</strong></p><br /><p>Are trees social beings? In this international bestseller, forester and author Peter Wohlleben convincingly makes the case that, yes, the forest is a social network. He draws on groundbreaking scientific discoveries to describe how trees are like human families: tree parents live together with their children, communicate with them, support them as they grow, share nutrients with those who are sick or struggling, and even warn each other of impending dangers. Wohlleben also shares his deep love of woods and forests, explaining the amazing processes of life, death, and regeneration he has observed in his woodland.<br /><br />After learning about the complex life of trees, a walk in the woods will never be the same again.<br /><br /><em>Includes a Note From a Forest Scientist, by Dr.Suzanne Simard</em></p><p><em>Published in partnership with the David Suzuki Institute.</em></p>
