    doc ô The Grand Tour ☆ Hardcover read õ citybreakscheap The Grand TourI grew up listening to tapes and records my parents would play of George Jones music along with hearing him on the radio I even have some of his songs in my own collection that I have played for my childrenI knew most of the colorful past of George Jones' and thought this book would uncover of the man behind the music All it seemed to do was brush over who he was personally and focus on his drug and alcohol addiction I did enjoy seeing the few photos included in the book

    doc ô The Grand Tour ☆ Hardcover read õ citybreakscheap The Grand TourI received an Advanced Reader Copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review As a huge traditional country music fan I am an admirer of George Jones' music and the many singers following in his footsteps I was very excited to read a biography about him I thought this book had a ton of interesting information but lacked organization It was a bit difficult to come up with an overlying theme I think I might try Jones' autobiography and see what I can learn from the man himself

    doc ô The Grand Tour ☆ Hardcover read õ citybreakscheap The Grand TourI’d guess that the most common word to pop up in George Jone’s biography is some form of the word “drink” Throughout the first 23 of the book Jones is a drinking fool So much of the story takes place with Jones in an inebriated state that you wonder what he’d be like sober You get a glimpse of that in the end of the book but he’s older and settled by the time that switc

    doc ô The Grand Tour ☆ Hardcover read õ citybreakscheap The Grand TourI enjoyed reading about the life of George Jones Many of the anecdotes about his wild life were entertaining but I found his biographer's crude and haphazard tangential writing style very distracting I felt as if he inserted himself and his thoughts too much into Jones' story George Jones was one of the immortals of country music He deserves a biography with a bit dignity and a biographer that knows not to hog the limelight with his subject

    doc ô The Grand Tour ☆ Hardcover read õ citybreakscheap The Grand TourGeorge Possum Jones was perhaps the greatest country singer of all time He definitely did those heartbreak songs better than anyone google The Grand Tour or He Stopped Loving Her Today and listen to those if you don't know his work Every now and then I love to listen to old school my heart has been ripped out and stomped on by a no good woman melancholy country song and when I doJones is always a good option He was an amazing singer but away from the microphone? Not as amazing Multiple marriages one to the eually brilliant country singer Tammy Wynette kids decades of alcoholism cocaine addiction bankruptcy crazy on stage antics No Show was a nickname for the amount of time Jones wouldn't show up for gigs It's actually hard to believe he lived to be 81 years old after reading about the ways he abused him

    doc ô The Grand Tour ☆ Hardcover read õ citybreakscheap The Grand TourThe Grand Tour The Life and Music of George Jones by Rich Kienzle HarperCollinDey Street Books March 2016 288 Pages 18771499 provides an excellent overview of the life and times of George Jones called by the New York Times the “definitive country singer of last half century” and known for years in the industry as “no show Jones” for his propensity to be unable to make it to the stage because of his serious problems with drugs and alcohol It may also echo the life and times of the country music industry during the decades from the sixties through the eighties when many according to an interview we heard recently the industry floated on an epidemic of drugs and alcohol While I didn't find much of Jones' life or personality to be much endearing many of his fans will excuse his behavior for the greatness of his mammoth catalog
