I don’t know why I write these lines
这不像我可以寄给你这封信
It’s that I love you more after all this time
这是我希望我能更好地向你展现出来
- 夜间驱动器

首先有夜间驱动器这首歌曲。现在有夜间驱动器the book. Both celebrate the love of one brother for another brother.

Garnet Rogers发布了这首歌 - 一个令人难以忘怀的自传梦/愿景 - 作为他1996年专辑的标题跟踪。当我第一次听到录音时,它给了我鸡皮疙瘩;它在膝盖上留下了弱势,我第一次看到他在安大略省西南部的家庭地上执行它的玛丽希尔小酒馆。

副标题Travels with My Brother,回忆录是罗杰斯注定要写的书。“我不得不写它,我需要写它,”他在布兰特福德以外的马场上的电话交谈中确认,他与盖尔一起生活,他的妻子35年。

期待已久的回忆录展开了电影口腔历史,从20世纪50年代的汉密尔顿的小伙子开始,在20世纪60年代发现音乐并形成乐队。大多数本书涵盖了1973年6月Garnet于1973年6月在高中毕业的十年的石榴石和斯坦斯北美(通常是Bass播放器),1983年6月2日 - 音乐死亡的那一天,至少用于斯坦。

I had a dream; it seemed so real
Its passing left me shaking
I saw you here behind the wheel
在这条路上,我正在服用

夜间驱动器is many splendid things. It is Garnet’s deeply affectionate tribute to his brother as well as to their parents. It offers an intimate full-bodied portrait of Stan, complete with bruises and blisters, scabs and scars.

It ‘shines a light’ (Garnet’s phrase) on the people (musicians, club and coffeehouse owners, longtime booking agent, festival artistic directors, theatre managers, billets and fans) who graciously helped Stan and Garnet create music against incredible odds at a time when eking out a living as independent folksingers without the support of a major record label was brave, unbridled lunacy. Unconditionally supported by their mom and dad, Stan and Garnet were leaders in milling the business template for entrepreneurial independent acoustic musicians.

这本书仍然对哥哥石榴石的纪录立即知道,并且尽管存在强烈的挥发性差异,所以仍然知道。同样,它在他死亡后,它在那些Garnet上稳定了得分,相信斯坦错误,或者在他去世后,他的艺术衬衫在他的艺术衬衫上骑着。在许多情况下,石榴石下降到名称名称,决定我怀疑避免诽谤索赔,而不是保护自我服务有罪。

石榴石一直很难调和他很好地与神话制造机械制造的传说中所知道的兄弟,将棘手的艺术家转变为消毒商品。他的回忆录是一种挑衅地回收他的兄弟曾是rather than as memorialized by others after Stan perished in a fire aboard an Air Canada jet on the tarmac of Cincinnati Airport. (I was city editor at theTimmins每天新闻当时我仍然颤抖着记住吞噬我的恐怖和悲伤,当我读到加拿大新闻线上的措施确认斯坦的死亡。对我来说,这是一个悲剧的头版。)

Hurtling westward through the prairie night
Under the spell of motion
在仪表板光明中,你的眼睛很清晰明亮
Dreaming of the western ocean
尘土飞扬的城镇远远落后
Mountains drawing ever nearer
Your face was then
因为今晚
Ever young
更清楚地

如果您认为是开创性的,现代天际在无尽的高速公路上构成了高浪漫的冒险,夜间驱动器serves as a cautionary tale. It places readers smack dab in the car or van, not to mention the piss-stained beer joints and flea-bag hotels that defined life on the road. Much of the time, they live hand-to-mouth, with wallets bare and bellies empty for days on end. Thank God for the booze, which never dried up. ‘People don’t realize how miraculous it was for Stan to write those extraordinary songs in the midst of all the chaos, poverty and violence,’ Garnet asserted with a note of wonder still in his voice. ‘There was so much violence around us and so much stupidity within us.’ He has never spoken truer words to me in the 35 years I’ve known him.

Garnet explained he read a lot of First and Second World War memoirs in preparation for writing his own memoir. He learned well.夜间驱动器相当于大鼠侵染沟渠的致命,手工作战的血液和胆量叙述。历史记录也建议了一种方法。“我没有被出发成为一个[音乐]历史学家。我没有大[文化]图片。我对越过沙漠时,我对坦克的士兵感兴趣。“的确,有很多胀气,更不用说呕吐和撒尿,在NightDrive.

尽管有猥亵的痛苦条款chricalled夜间驱动器,这是一种令人愉悦的喧闹,令人愉快的令人愉快的歌手。我失去了时代的数量,我不得不停止阅读,我很难笑。我的意思是大肚子笑了。Squeamish政治上正确的读者小心;读者也是如此令人生畏的肚子和细腻的敏感性。您听过的最疯狂,大多数奇怪,最荒谬或最荒谬的故事,以及他的快乐Pranksters的乐队并不适用于735页,这款剧情的Magnum Opus。考虑到在路上见面动物屋

警告:您需要在椅子的怀抱中休息肘部,以便在阅读自传的家庭时支持您的手腕,因为您将无法放下它 - 这是令人兴奋的。除了吃和睡觉的例外,我还有别的别的来完成的四天。没有它,我从未去过洗手间。

如果我的记忆服务
北极光闪亮
You lit a smoke
我们分享了一些葡萄酒
我们看着天空奇迹
你的笑声一直在回声
In that high and wild blue yonder

如果你没有从笑声中渗透到泪水中,当Garnet为亲爱的朋友们祈求那些传递的朋友祈祷时,就会哭泣。那些熟悉他的歌曲的人将已经知道他如何抚慰疼痛的心或安慰受伤的灵魂。

夜间驱动器提供迷人的幕后,举行的Stan-The The The Stan的非凡目录。他的佳能不仅是加拿大音乐最令人印象深刻的一种,而不论类型的类型如何;这是所有现代民间音乐中最受持久的最持久的人之一。

这里是石榴石洞察力和口才的一个例子,在这种情况下西北通道那在e of Stan’s dozen or so masterworks. ‘People can make of the song what they will. It is very personal for me, and when I hear it I am back again in that smelly smoke-filled van, with two other tired and lonely and frightened young men, with too many miles before us. Too many miles, and too many shows, and too little sleep before we got to turn the nose of the van around and head back east to hearth and home.’ Wow, that’s fine, fine descriptive writing that peels the skin off the emotional onion with a razor blade.

随着时间的推移
Your life has seemed less real
但是这些夜晚的驱动器
Bring you nearer

I have been listening to Canadian acoustic music for 50 years and writing about it for 35 years — from the sidelines. Meanwhile, Garnet got down and dirty as a significant player;夜间驱动器将读者放在泥浆中的野外,汗水和血液上。感谢,I would like to take this opportunity to say a little about the Garnet Rogers I know.

我和石榴石一起享有悠久的专业历史。当我覆盖艺术和其他节拍时,我在1984年第一次见到他Brantford Expositor他正在在布兰特福德民间俱乐部表演。我不记得他是否正在尊重斯坦被预订的出场,或者已经开始雕刻自己的职业生涯。我们谈到了斯坦和他刚刚开始的独奏音乐旅程,刚刚开始令人束缚。

这是我们共享的许多对话中的第一个。除了在区域音乐会之前进行面试加网口,虽然我是一名艺术记者滑铁卢地区记录,我审查了大厅,教堂,剧院和节日的大多数音乐会。我也审查了他的十几张专辑。石榴石是一名记者的梦想;他是聪明的,有趣的是地狱和雄辩。当你获得信任时,他是开放和坦率的。我从未在男人或他的艺术方面发表过令人沮丧的话语。

我们的大多数谈话都通过电话进行。在心里谈话时,石榴石永远不会被保留。多年来,我们讨论了他在兄弟去世后个人和专业地在他的临床抑郁和破坏性渴望酒精中的临床抑郁和破坏性渴望。我是他向他撰写原创歌曲的第一名作家之一。他一直习惯于通过归因于掩盖澳大利亚作函的秘密引入原始材料。

当他出现时(在我的推荐)上时,我正在接受拍照的采访Listen Up,一个专门用于加拿大歌手/歌曲手淫的39件电视剧,最初在视觉电视上播出。

Garnet is unreservedly kind to those he respects. He once paid me the enormous compliment of telling me he thought I was one of the two best acoustic music reviewers in North America — the other being Scott Alarik, folk musician, folk critic ofThe Boston Globe多年来的作者Deep Community: Adventures in the Modern Folk Underground.

He’s also unreservedly generous. During my first interview with James Keelaghan years back when he was an emerging songwriter from Calgary, he told me Garnet had given him his first quality guitar — I believe it was made by Grit Laskin — just because Garnet believed the younger songwriter should have it. Similarly, when I lost my personal library and music collection in a house fire 25 years ago, Garnet sent me a care-package collection of CDs spanning his catalogue.

So tonight I’ll wish upon these stars
As they rise upward to guide me
我会在这里见到你
Just as you are
现在,旁边,在我身边
Scares me how the years have flown
像叶子漂移在九月
They’ve lost sight of you as your legend’s grown
But this road and I
We remember

夜间驱动器is a love letter to his dear late brother, a postcard home, an anthem to independent music when Canada came of age creatively and artistically, and a prayer of remembrance to those who pay the music forward.

石榴石并没有结束他的备忘录斯坦的死亡。他在克尔维尔民间节在克尔维尔民间节举行后,他辞来对他的兄弟说再见。石榴石已经安排了早期回家。然后他回忆起在这个广阔的国家旅行,斯坦数年前,永远向西进入瘦弱的遥远地平线。“我想把我们留在路上,'石头说。

The origins of夜间驱动器延长超过三十年。他写了first piece on airmail paper in St. John’s shortly after Stan’s death. Fragments can be found scattered throughout his spiral notebooks.

He has devoted most of the last two years to writing, rewriting, rewriting again and editing. ‘I reached the point where it came quickly,’ he confirmed. ‘I started looking forward to it.’ All the while he was field testing passages at concerts.

Garnet spent a decade performing, touring and recording with Stan. He has spent the past 35 years carving out a popular solo career which, in his lifetime, exceeded by far the success Stan enjoyed in his lifetime.

尽管如此,粉丝不应该指望续集。“随之而来的职业生涯并没有几乎与众不多好玩,”他承认。“没有人有我的背部。当奇怪的事情发生时,没有人跳过面包车,撕开。

'做自己的音乐一直在令人满意,但它不想冒险。魔力出来了。“

Garnet已经写了,录制并表现了一些精彩而令人惊叹的歌曲作为独唱艺术家。然而,在一个非常真实的意义上,33年前,当他的大哥被击败并成为一个传说,音乐也为他而死。

值得庆幸的是,我们现在有故事让人类肉体在神话中。斯坦没有任何其他方式。
