Synopsis

Singer, composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist, and superstar, Sheryl Crow is one of the most respected and accomplished artists on the rock scene today, with eight Grammy awards, sold-out concerts, and album sales in excess of 20 million copies. Her distinctive vocal style and idiosyncratic sound, which blends rock with "alternative country," folk with "neo-hippy," has been widely imitated. Sheryl Crow: No Fool to This Game tells the unvarnished story behind the south Missouri native who, in addition to her own accomplishments, has collaborated on stage and in the studio with many of the world's most celebrated musical artists. This mesmerizing biography digs beneath the media hype and public image to uncover the full facts about this talented, complex, independent, and incredibly driven woman who, within a relatively short period of time, has blazed a rich and intricate trail on her own terms. New York Times best-selling author Richard Buskin has closely tracked Sheryl Crow's career from the release of her award-winning 1993 debut album, Tuesday Night Music Club, through her equally successful follow-ups, including her new 2002 album, C'mon, C'mon. Filled with in-depth research and personal interviews with Sheryl Crow's friends, colleagues, and even adversaries, this book offers a fascinating, multifaceted look at a life that has encompassed numerous highs and lows-while also providing rare insight into how a star is born, nourished, and marketed in today's cutthroat music industry.
