Loving Amy: A Mother's Story

Loving Amy: A Mother's Story by Janis Winehouse

“Amy was one of those rare people who made an impact . . . She was a bundle of emotions, at times adorable and at times unbearable. . . . Amy??s passing did not follow a clear line. It was jumbled, and her life was unfinished??"not life??s natural order at all. She left no answers, only questions, and in the years since her death I??ve found myself trying to make sense of the frayed ends of her extraordinary existence.”

Arguably the most gifted artist of her generation, Amy Winehouse died tragically young, aged just twenty-seven. With a worldwide fan base and millions of record sales to her...

Really the Blues

Really the Blues by Mezz Mezzrow & Bernard WolfeMezz Mezzrow was a boy from Chicago who learned to play the sax in reform school and pursued a life in music and a life of crime. He moved from Chicago to New Orleans to New York, working in brothels and bars, bootlegging, dealing drugs, getting hooked, doing time, producing records, and playing with the greats, among them Louis Armstrong, Bix Beiderbecke, and Fats Waller. Really the Blues, the jive-talking memoir that Mezzrow wrote at the insistence of, and with the help of, the novelist Bernard Wolfe, is the story of an unusual and unusually American life, and a portrait of a man who moved...

Rollaresque: The Rakish Progress of The Rolling Stones

Rollaresque: The Rakish Progress of The Rolling Stones by Simon Goddard

London 1962. Five young hooligans have formed a band and are on a collision course with the austere and intolerant values of post-war Britain. From their beginning in a scummy flat off the Kings Road to the notorious Redlands scandal, this is the anarchic rollercoaster ride of the Stones' first five years.

We follow our heroes in a rags-to-riches romp of sex, scandal, mischief and uproarious behaviour as they challenge the establishment, invent the archetype of the rebellious, parent-scaring rock star lothario and, eventually, receive their comeuppance from the powers that be.

Presented with the...

Prince: The Man and His Music

Prince: The Man and His Music by Matt ThorneFamously reticent, perverse, and controversial, Prince is one of the few remaining superstars of the 1980s who still, perhaps, remains an enigma. Now a firm fixture in the pop canon, where such classics as "Purple Rain," "Sign o' the Times," and "Parade" regularly feature in Best Ever Album polls, Prince is widely held to be the greatest musician of his generation. His live performances are legendary and his influence on music—across pop, indie rock, hip hop, and R&B—has never been more evident. Matt Thorne's Prince has been written from years of research and interviews with dozens of intimate...

A sensitive boy brow-beaten by his domineering Aunt. A trouble-maker who refused to conform. A tortured genius. A global sensation.

This is a challenge to the orthodox versions of the 'Lennon Story'. The Making of John Lennon presents a journey into the confusion and pain that lay behind one of popular music's most researched, yet most misunderstood geniuses. What follows is how John Lennon came to be John Lennon, musical legend. And it all starts in Liverpool.
