Description - Van Morrison by Johnny Rogan

Rogan's got something to hide. What's he hiding? I'd like to write a book about him' Van Morrison eclusive, difficult and enigmatic, Van Morrison is a gifted singer-songwriter and an endlessly complicated man. In Van Morrison- No Surrender, Johnny Rogan has produced a provocative and revelatory biography of the musician, analysing the sense of place in his work and the tortuous journey that took him from local fame in Belfast to international success. Set against the cultural and political backdrop of Belfast, before, during and after the Troubles, No Surrender offers a unique and penetrating perspective on Morrison s long career and the times that made him. ver the last five decades, his music has embraced rock, folk, blues, country and jazz, and he remains a hugely influential figure. This definitive study, the product of years of research with scores of new interviews from every stage of his career, is a compelling account of a modern music myth.
