John Rite Magician

Nothing extraordinary has ever happened to John Rite. He is not an athlete; he is a magician. But in high school, if you are not an athlete, everyone knows you are nothing. John knows this. That is why he bursts into the back door of his home shouting, “Guess what, Mom? I won the one-hundred-yard dash.” Suddenly, several extraordinary events…

  • The ballet that sparked a riot?
  • The rock star who became an astrophysicist?
  • The song that saved Wheaties?
  • The man killed by his own conducting?
  • The controversy behind "Mary Had a Little Lamb"?

Prepare to be astonished, bewildered, and stupefied by the tantalizing tidbits of music history collected here: amazing stories about jazz, classical, country, rock 'n' roll, hip-hop, show tunes, composers, band names, song lyrics, instruments, technology, controversies, and more.

Learn how the FBI spent years trying to decode the lyrics of one rock song. Discover how Watergate provided the inspiration for A Chorus Line. Find out how one megahit was born in a history class, while another was dashed off in a fit of anger at actor Robert De Niro. Meet the monk behind solfège, the aviation pioneer who created Muzak, and the prisoner who literally sang himself out of jail. Then there's the most important person in rock 'n' roll history—chances are you've never heard of him!

Continuing the successful Greatest Stories Never Told series, Rick Beyer has delivered another classic volume for history and music buffs alike.
