I would highly recommend his series of stories he has posted on youtube in lieu of publishing a book about them. They are fascinating and his experiences are both incredible and tragic. It's sad how many times he has not received what he deserves for such incredible music and how he has seen so little for his groundbreaking releases being taken advantage of by record labels. In some way I'm glad these are not in book form because his stories have much more gravitas hearing his emotion behind the words. If you are a fan, do yourself a favor and listen and find a way to support him.

edit: Looks like his youtube account was deleted. Oh well. Hope they get posted again

Man Parrish on Heatstroke: When I first started out I was so broke I made this song called "Heatstroke" as a soundtrack for a porno movie. Some DJ had sampled it off the movie, made an acetate, and somebody told me, "Hey they're playing your music at this club." I ran down to the club and all of a sudden my song came on. I asked the DJ, "Wait a minute, where'd you get that record? It's my music." He told me, "That's your music? Come down to the record company, they'll sign you on the spot."

Man Parrish on Hip-Hop Be-Bop: I was doing ambient experimental music before--I was into Brian Eno. There was a place called the Mud Club where he'd hold court and we'd go and listen to him speak in awe. So music had to be art. That's how I approached it--I was more interested in doing art music than pop music. When "Hip Hop" came out, people wanted me to perform it, but I hated it, it wasn't a real song. There was no structure to it. It wasn't real music, it was a piece of audio art. How could people be interested in that?

Man Parrish on Electro: "Planet Rock" and "Hip Hop Bee Bop" weren't made by starving kids in the ghetto with a message, they were made by whiteboys who wanted to party and dance a little.
