Music vs The Man

Music vs The Man
by Peter Rowe

Publication date was October 1, 2020.

For centuries, a war has raged between singers, musicians, bands¾and the authorities. The conflict comes to life here.

What is it about musicians like John Lennon, Billie Holiday, Paul Robeson, Michael Jackson, and Pussy Riot that has put them in the crosshairs of the police, immigration officials, city councils, the FBI, and the Kremlin? The book features the stories of artists from Shostakovich to Sinatra and the Stones.

Music wields the type of revolutionary power that politicians and authorities only dream of. Music has the power to open hearts, change minds, and motivate people to stand up for what they believe in. That’s why, through the centuries, authorities have been trying to censor it

Peter Rowe is both author and acclaimed filmmaker, responsible for the popular 49-part television series Angry Planet.
