Item Description...
The first full-length biography of alternative music's ranking wunderkind.

He has been called "the most important voice of his generation" by Allen Ginsberg. He has called his own music "a satanic K-Tel record that's been found in a trash Dumpster." He was named Bek David Campbell but is now called simply Beck, one of the most innovative and unpredictable musicians today. Ever since his 1994 accidental smash hit, the Generation X anthem "Loser," Beck has repeatedly defied categorization with his top-selling albums Odelay, Mellow Gold, Mutations, and Midnite Vultures, winning critical acclaim, commercial success, and a couple of Grammys. Rock journalist Rob Jovanovic goes behind the music to find that Beck's life story, although less well known, is just as unusual. His grandfather led the avant-garde Fluxus movement in the sixties, his father is a bluegrass musician who has worked with Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones, and his mother was a Warhol starlet who adopted the L.A. punk scene. After growing up in Bible Belt Kansas and the ghettos of East L.A., Beck experimented with musical genres from blues and folk to hip-hop and punk, playing in Greenwich Village clubs and busking on Hollywood Boulevard. Jovanovic also profiles every song Beck has recorded and analyzes his artwork, videos, and TV performances to make Beck!: On a Backwards River the ultimate source on Beck Hansen.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Seems like all filler...  Nov 19, 2002
The first few chapters of this book were good, Jovanovic had material on Beck's childhood and how he started as a musician. Then as soon as the book gets to the part when Beck releases Mellow Gold it gets boring. I, personally do not like Jovanovic at all. He acts like he is a music buff. He says Cake copies Beck. If anyone has heard Cake, then they know they sound nothing like Beck. They're completely different and unique. He needs more information to back up claims like that. I didn't flip through the book before I got it, and the 2nd half is all boring nonsense about individual songs, videos and art. It wasn't about Beck as a person at all.

A tad boring, but If your a hardcore Beck fan, then it's worth a read.

Boring  Jan 8, 2002
I'm a pretty big Beck fan, but this book rambled on and on. The author put in so much detail about people I slightly cared about, that I skimmed a lot of the material. It felt like a magazine article that had been padded up to make a book. I feel like I know very little more about Beck than when I started reading. I guess if you're into statistical information with regards to who played on what song and who directed which video (this information takes up half of the book) and what songs Beck played at each appearance, you'd like this book. As for me, I expected to learn more about Beck as a person and have more insights into his songs.
Being Beck Hansen  Apr 28, 2001
Poor Rob Jovanovic. Writing a celebrity bio of such a young guy must be tricky: how to tell the story without fawning, and what to say that might be worth reading a year from now. But this book is prosaic and tendentious, meandering pointlessly: the exact antithesis of Beck's songs.

The book is also irrelevant, except for the most gaga of fans. Beck tells his own story captivatingly. He connects with his listeners, not always emotionally, but in some dark, smokey recess of the brain. What more can his audience expect?
