Ian Winwood: Bodies
Life and Death in Music
|Verlag:||Faber & Faber|
A DAILY TELEGRAPH and IRISH TIMES BOOK OF THE YEAR
The must-read music book of the year, now with a brand new chapter covering the death of Taylor Hawkins and his massive Wembley memorial concert.
In Bodies, author Ian Winwood explores the music industry's many failures, from addiction and mental health issues to its ongoing exploitation of artists. Much more than a touchline reporter, Winwood also tells the story of his own mental health collapse, following the shocking death of his father, in which extinction-level behaviour was given perfect cover by a reckless industry.
'This is such a shrewd, funny, psychologically perceptive, frank, well-written, jawdropping book . Absolutely buy and read the hell out of this.' DAVID STUBBS
'Winwood makes a compelling argument and overturns some long-held notions about "rock and roll excess" by deftly tying together a vast amount of information . . . and liberally lacing it with dark, self-deprecating humour.' ALEXIS PETRIDIS
