Where so many rock biographies tell the same story, Jack Johnson is a true exception. Hawaii's own Grammy-minated musician was carving out a growing reputation as a professional surfer when an accident left him too injured to compete at the highest level. Johnson switched to making surf movies but gradually found his voice as a singer-songwriter. Initially a cult amongst surfers, he has w crossed over to the mainstream, acclaimed as a 'Dylan for the 21st Century', his third album, 2005's In Between Dreams , sold 800,000 copies in the UK alone and he has just picked up a BRIT award for International Breakthrough Act. Acclaimed George Harrison biographer Marc Shapiro has conducted hours of new interviews with those who knew Johnson both as a surfer and a musician, to produce a compelling portrait of one of rock's most original new stars.
Shapiro is the author of over a dozen non-fiction books about the film, television and music industries, including biographies of James Cameron, Lauryn Hill and recent bestseller Behind Sad Eyes: The Life of George Harrison. He also writes for the New York Times.
