A rollercoaster journey through the glory days of pop music, this memoir from famed produced Tony Visconti brings to life more than five decades of music history. Soon after abandoning his native New York in the 1960s to pursue his career in the UK, Visconti found himself in the thick of the emerging glam rock movement. His first commercial success came with T.Rex, but it was with the then-unknown David Bowie that Visconti made his mark on the music scene. He has since worked with dozens of famous artists, among them Thin Lizzy, Morrissey, Iggy Pop, U2, and Wings. In this riveting autobiography, Visconti recalls the stories from his early days up until his present life back in New York. Filled with the groups and artists who shaped and made the pop scene, this is the story of a life spent behind the music.

Eine Liebe, zu groß für die Ewigkeit - Die einzige Biografie des Skandalpaars in Zusammenarbeit mit Elizabeth Taylor »Sie war so unfassbar schön, dass ich beinahe lachen musste. Sie war einfach hinreißend und unglaublich sinnlich. Sie war, kurz gesagt, einfach eine Nummer zu groß, und nicht nur das: Sie ignorierte mich auch noch völlig.« – So beginnt eine Affäre, die bald die ganze Welt in Atem hält: Alkoholexzesse, Sex, Trennungen, Glamourauftritte und millionenschwere Versöhnungsgeschenke: Die Burtons lebten und liebten, als gäbe es kein Morgen. Leidenschaftlich, zerstörerisch, berauschend – eine Liebe, die sie ihr Leben lang nicht mehr losließ ...

Als das erste Tape zu Ende ist, wissen wir, dass Renée an einer Lungenembolie gestorben ist. Rob Sheffield hat die ganze Nacht nicht geschlafen, sondern diese Kassette gehört, die seine Frau ihm hinterlassen hat. Es ist ihr letztes Date, nur Rob, Reneé und ein paar Songs. In »Love is a Mix Tape« erzählt Rob Sheffield, Redakteur beim amerikanischen »Rolling Stone«, entlang von 15 Kassetten die Geschichte seiner kurzen Beziehung zu Renée, einem Mädchen, das eigentlich viel zu cool für den schüchternen Rob war, das sich aber trotzdem in ihn verliebte. Ein Punkrock-Girl, wie es sie nur in den neunziger Jahren gab, als Pavement, Nirvana und R.E.M. eine Musik-Explosion auslösten. Aber auch Elvis, die Rolling Stones, Missy Elliott, Yo La Tengo gehören zum Soundtrack ihrer gemeinsamen Geschichte. Sie heiraten, leben zusammen, kaufen sich einen Hund, und dann stirbt Renée. Rob schafft es nicht, in der Wohnung zu bleiben, meidet Restaurants und Lokale, die er mit Renée besucht hat. Er schläft nicht und sucht Antworten in der Musik. Dabei ist es unwichtig, ob es sich um gute oder schlechte Songs handelt. Rob Sheffield gelingt es, unprätentiös, leicht und ohne falsche Hemmungen über den Verlust eines geliebten Menschen zu schreiben.

RECORD COLLECTOR BOOK OF THE YEAR 1998: The Epic biography of rock's wildest superstar. Keith Moon was more than just rock's greatest drummer, he was also its greatest character...and wildest party animal. Fuelled by vast quantities of drink, drugs, insecurities and confusion, Moon destroyed everything with gleeful abandon: drum kits, houses, cars, hotels, relationships and, finally, himself. In Dear Boy, Tony Fletcher has captured lightning in a bottle - the essence of a totally incorrigible yet uniquely generous boy who never grew up, and who changed the lives of all who knew him. From a life distorted by myths of debauchery and comic anarchy, Fletcher has created a searingly personal portrait of Keith Moon. From over 100 first-hand interviews, he traces with deadly accuracy Moon's remarkable journey from his working-class Northwest London childhood, through the Who's glory years to the California high-life and a sad, premature death. Here too are fascinating insights into the history of the Who and the emergent British pop culture revolution of post-war years. Keith Moon was one of the shock troops of that revolution: the world's greatest rock drummer, a phenomenal character and an extravagant hell-raiser who - in a final, uncharacteristic act of grace - actually did die before he got old. Illustrated with many photos from personal and Who archives. This is the 2005 Updated version with a new and extended afterword.

'Through interviews with friends and colleagues, as well as detailed research, the writer has gained unprecedented knowledge of the true story behind the legend. This is a fascinating insight into one of the greatest artists of our lifetime.' Evening Standard 'Through several interviews with Bowie she evocatively portrays his fascinating life, often with a tenderness you wouldn't expect.' Daily Express 'An intriguing book. This is a personal friendship in writing. The knowledge divulged here is an endearing and powerful tale of a man who conquered the entire entertainment industry with his creative force.' Variety A unique portrait of the globally revered artist and the extraordinary, complex man behind the legend. His music thrilled the generation it was written for, and has entertained and inspired every generation since. HERO: DAVID BOWIE is an intelligent exploration of the man behind the myths and the makeup told from the very beginning. Respected music journalist and biographer Lesley-Ann Jones knew David Jones from the days before fame, when he was a young musician starting out, frustrated by an industry that wouldn't give him a break and determined to succeed. Here she traces the epic journey of the boy from Bromley born into a troubled background to his place as one of the greatest stars in rock history. Jones has interviewed numerous friends and associates of Bowie, many of whom have never spoken publicly about him before. Drawing on this new material and meticulous research, the real story of Bowie's family background is told; the true inspiration behind the creation of Ziggy Stardust is revealed, and we learn how his marriage to Angie ended in agony following his comeback from a near fatal drug addiction. Jones also revisits Bowie's tragic relationship with his brother and his deep bond with T Rex frontman Marc Bolan. Bowie's rebellious nature, his many sources of inspiration and creativity, and his complex, intense personality are discussed here, creating a unique and compelling portrait of an extraordinary man. This is Bowie as you've never seen him before.
