Antonino D'Ambrosio - A Heartbeat and a Guitar PDF Download eBookA Heartbeat and a Guitar: Johnny Cash and the Making of Bitter Tears is a book written by Antonino Pasquale D'Ambrosio. D'Ambrosio is an accomplished author, artist and filmmaker. He is renowned for his great and bold works such as his feature film Let Fury Have the Hour and the book he complied based on that project, Let Fury Have the Hour: The Punk Rock Politics of Joe Strummer.
Here D'Ambrosio takes readers learn the processes—creative and emotional alike—that took place behind the creation of Bitter Tears: Ballads of the American Indian. For Cash, this was among his most personal albums because he believed that he was a Cherokee descendant—though his later investigation proved that he wasn’t. Collaborating with another revolutionary folk singer-songwriter Peter La Farge, Cash exhibited his personal, political, and cultural insights into powerful songs such as "The Ballad of Ira Hayes".
Bitter Tears has inspired many musicians including legends like Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen and through the pages of A Heartbeat and a Guitar, D'Ambrosio offers wider perspective to recognize its significance. By conducting thorough interviews with any surviving friends, family, colleagues, band members, and producers of Cash and La Farge, D'Ambrosio distinctly pictures the days of the early 60’s—the era of radical protest—and one of the most influential works created in that era.
