A HEARTBEAT AND A GUITAR by Antonino D'Ambrosio On the Way


With a cover by Shepard Fairey, the designer of the Obama poster, A HEARTBEAT AND A GUITAR: Johnny Cash and the Making of Bitter Tears (Nation Books) will feature never before published photos by the great rock photographer Jim Marshall (did the photos of Cash at Folsom Prison, the famous Jimi Hendrix portrait among a thousand other things--including included a never before see photo of Dylan at Newport in '63). There are plans for a big concert at Carnegie Hall for the book, with Pete Seeger, Bruce Springsteen, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, and others.
