Long Ago and Far Away: James Taylor: His Life and Music

From "The Beatles" patronage of his 1968 debut album to his Grammy awards for Hourglass, James Taylor has remained a universally acclaimed songwriter of effortless eloquence and power. In this major biography, the late Timothy White explores the myths and reality behind the personal journey of legendary singer. White examines the roots of Taylor's anguish, and his recurring problems with heroin and alcohol. There is an epic family history, an exploration of the stories behind "Fire and Rain", and a frank account of the artist's time spent at Apple Records and Warner Brothers. With contributions from Paul McCartney, Carly Simon, Sting, the Taylor family and many other key figures, this edition is destined to become the definitive biography of the troubled hero. There is also an epilogue concerning the memorial concerts arranged by Taylor for the late author White, as well as an extensive discography and bibliography.

Timothy White (January 25, 1952 – June 27, 2002) was a noted American rock music journalist and editor.

White began his journalism career as a writer for the Associated Press, but soon gravitated towards music writing. He was an editor for the rock magazine "Crawdaddy!" in the late 1970s and a senior editor for "Rolling Stone" magazine in the early 1980s. He was editor-in-chief of "Billboard" from 1991 until his death at age 50 of a heart attack in 2002.

White wrote several music-related biographies, including books on The Beach Boys, Bob Marley and James Taylor, as well as several collections of columns and short pieces.

Sometimes eccentric in appearance (he often sported bow ties at concerts), White seemed an unlikely rock writer but was well respected for his honest, meticulously documented, and lively writing.

White was also the subject of a lyric by Eminem, in which he raps: "Let me recite 'til Timothy White, pickets outside the Interscope offices everynight." This lyric appears in the song "Bitch Please II" featuring Xzibit, Dr. Dre, Nate Dogg, and Snoop Dogg.
