Approximate translation of the file
Here is a book testimony which should find echo among our visitors, visitors of the site.
Parce qu' he speaks about our preferred music, pardi!
In any case for a good part of the mienne!
Finally that qu' listened to Chuck KLOSTERMAN and " my pomme" jusqu' with l' year 2001 and the exit of this work, with l' paddle of our 30 years (delivers translated into French in 2011!).
Lastly, I l' always listen and Chuck also I think!
Good, Chuck grew to the USA, in rural area on the side of Fargo (North Dakota) while listening of the Hard-Rock or Metal if you prefer this name.
Notez that for l' author, MOTLEY CRUE is of the Heavy Metal.
He knew l' immense popular success of the Hard-Rock of the Eighties, contrary to France remained rather hermetic with the phenomenon.
It is true that what us, hear people of generation 80, approximately the of forty years ones of 2010, name this music Hard-Rock ! The
young people aujourd' today speaks more than Metal…
For my part, MOTLEY CRUE in the Eighties was a group of Hard-Rock, with mode glam.
J' liked this book parce qu' he speaks, d' an American point of view, music and good numbers of groups which I venerate.
C' is a little like if an American fan of Brassens, Brel or Gainsbourg read a French book (translated into English) over the years of glory of these artists (j' will have been able quoted Gérard LENORMAN too!).
a book which would have been written by a young person having grown in a campaign of deep and rural France (with a city and some record dealers not too far nevertheless!).
Brief, Chuck speaks to us about his history, its life and its attempt difficult to grow through its passion for the music of the groups going of MOTLEY CRUE, RATT to DEF LEPPARD while passing by GUNS N' ROSES, WHITESNAKE etc. (many groups Heavy Metal of l' gilded time of the 80 are quoted, from BLACK SABBATH to IRON MAIDEN while passing by WASP).
Notez that its glance is American and that quoted and liked groups l' author are it in majority.
J' have, for my part, a very European culture of the style and certain named American groups are unknown for me. Live Internet for some new discoveries!
Chuck tells us also the glam through its life.
Good, then why j' had as much evil to go to the end?
He well, the philosophy of l' author is all the same of bottom stages and all his " flights lyriques" enough close to l' alcoholic qu' he is… (c' is him which l' writing!).
Eh yes, when GUNS N' ROSES s' post with a famous mark of whisky, the fan consumes the same mark, with the incurred risks!
And then, which m' stirred up a little, c' is that I said myself that j' will have been completely able d' to write this work in the Nineties.
And my book could, like Chuck , to tell passion d' a fan of Hard-Rock and hours spent to listen, in my French countryside, the Shout At The Devil of MOTLEY CRUE.
I will have tried to appear intelligent with some philosophical reflexions on the machism, l' alcohol, clips vidéos, life of the Rock'n'roll Star etc?
I do not think because I n' in met that too much little.
Alors, that Chuck him, discussed with them (even s' he does not deliver large thing of only we know already!) and qu' he went to a number much more significant than me to concerts.
Chuck is musical journalist and with the reading of l' work, it is obvious of s' to see the ditch which exists to become writer…
D' elsewhere does one become writer?
I n' in know anything…
I do not think only c' was its goal… Chuck is especially told (towards the end) and that seems almost a therapy for him, its suffering to lose l' innocence of l' childhood and of l' adolescence is obvious!
I find qu' it ' la' tell a little too! But with a beautiful sincerity!
a discharge system? A d' question; ego? There are also the psychiatrists for that…
In any case, this book is very safe literature, you are prevented (E) S!
But l' author arrives at m' to move sometimes because I find in his course mine and this passion for groups of legend Hard-Rock, Heavy Metal.
Its very American reflexions and other digressions in l' m' spirit; annoyed. The
some information glanées on the m' groups; interested.
And I share his point of view on the poverty of the Nineties, when NIRVANA completed a cycle…
Fargo Rock City, confessions d'un fan de Heavy Metal en zone rurale is not used for nothing and c' is all its utility perhaps there… (I do not know if Chuck l' would have found that there!).
