Reviews
The former personal manager for artists including Nirvana and Bonnie Raitt interviewed some of the most well-known performers who raised their voices against the former president--including Bruce Springsteen, John Legend and Rosanne Cash, among others--for his recently released book, Bloody Crossroads 2020: Art, Entertainment, and Resistance to Trump.-- "The Hill"
Bloody Crossroads 2020 is a riveting and thoughtful tour of the role artists played in resisting the horrors of the Trump presidency. Danny Goldberg provides a bracing and thorough recollection that is both a service and a reminder for artists to stay engaged and awake. To counter those who continually tell me to 'shut up and sing, ' I will buy a couple of crates of this book and get my marching boots polished. Thank you, Danny, for reminding me how it went down, and where it might go.--Rosanne Cash
I didn't think there was a place in politics for people in show business until I read Bloody Crossroads 2020.--Al Franken
From working as Led Zeppelin's publicist to managing Nirvana, Danny Goldberg is a fine analyst of the places where popular and political culture meets. In this engaging read, he looks critically at the role that artists and entertainers played in resisting Trump and Trumpism during the 2020 election campaign.-- "Vancouver Sun"
