Synopsis: Admired as much for his uncompromising vision as for his tough, soulful voice, Van Morrison is one of a select group of legendary performers who started out in the sixties and are still at the top of their profession. This is mostly through his own refusal to to co-operate with the media. From his early days as the surly lead singer with the Belfast rhythm and blues group "Them" through his long reclusive sojourn in America he has studiously avoided opening his soul to any medium but his music. Through personal interview, conversations with friends and fellow musicians and visits to the places that inspired such great songs as "Madame George", "Cyprus Avenue" and "Astral Weeks", this book pieces together the story of the search and reveals the man behind the mystic. What emerges is a portrait of a rock visionary who feels driven to make music, but who genuinely yearns for anonymity. Other work by the author includes "Conversations with Eric Clapton", "Hungry for Heaven: Rock and Roll and the Search for Redemption", and "U2: Rattle and Hum". His rock journalism has appeared in "Rolling Stone", "New Musical Express", the "Sunday Times","The Times", the "Independent" and "Die Welt".

From Publishers Weekly: The Irish singer/songwriter from East Belfast is now 47 years old. And though he has been on the contemporary music scene since his debut with the group Them in 1964, he has remained an enigma, refusing to make himself a target for the press or fans. This book is not really a biography as much as a pictorial review of his career; Turner ( U2: Rattle & Hum ) is more adulatory than probing. But for a figure of Morrison's complexity--his music is grounded in R&B, black spirituals and, lately, a kind of Motown fusion, while his faith has swung from Protestantism to Dianetics to a form of pagan mysticism--a photographic portrait is perhaps as revealing a look as fans can hope for. And the photos here are enchanting: entire contact sheets of an album cover shoot with his then-wife Janet Planet and their daughter when they lived in Woodstock; views of Morrison's childhood Belfast haunts that figure with continuing prominence in his new work. And perhaps most telling are the archival publicity photos of the young, slender Morrison that convey a smoldering ambition behind a sullen exterior. A complete discography makes this book a necessity for fans of the Irish Rover.
