Description

"Music From Big Pink" is a factional novella: a place where fictional characters rub shoulders with real people, and where actual documented events thread their way through the text alongside imagined scenarios. Through the eyes of twenty-three-year-old Greg Keltner, drug dealer, wannabe musician, and hanger-on, we witness the gestation and birth of an album that will go on to cast its spell across forty years. John Niven brings these characters to life with remarkable skill, and the result is an exhilarating, vivid, and powerfully moving book about the highs - and lows - of creating musical history.

Author Biography

John Niven toured and recorded as a guitarist in the Wishing Stones (their sole LP Wildwood owes more than a passing debt to the music of The Band), before becoming an A&R man and working with acts like Travis, Mogwai, and Sigur Ros. He lives just outside of London, and this is his first book.
