Description

I really enjoyed the author’s forays into memoir, especially the unbelievable and unjust experience with his dad. It is also a book that touches on relationships between fathers and sons in a way that seems pleasantly tangential. I urge absolutely everyone in bands, the music industry and otherwise to read 'Bodies' by IanWinwood immediately.

Gutting details, triumphant moments that anyone in the field will have latched to after their first byline, but without the impressive addition of actually meeting the bandmates as Winwood often does. There is a significant amount of personal history in here, which is interesting on its own - but it’s not really what it has been billed as. This interview is generally considered to be fiction of the journalist and to have never actually occurred. this is a personal account of a journey through a couple of decades of the most tawdry period in one of the world's most misunderstood "industries". The only interesting parts of this book are quotes from the musicians themselves otherwise Bodies delivers nothing you don't already know unless it is about Ian himself.obsessed days and his latest book draws on many of the interviews he conducted in that time and since. Sources mined from his own past interviews as well as those directly tied to the writing of this book. Instead we have the author's descent into My Drug Hell, which is boring, because there is only ever one My Drug Hell story you get to read: It was fun, then it was bad, then it was worse, then I was desperate and thought I would die, more of this, moment of light, I'm OK now.

I read this over the course of a plane journey and it was entertaining enough, just ultimately very insubstantial. As a lifelong music lover, I have often been saddened by the death of yet another musician, often a much admired frontman but never really given it a lot if thought.Behind this preposterously romantic, transgressive image lurks personal horror and tragedy, which Winwood recounts unsparingly, but with authentic empathy: the story of his own drink-and-drug fuelled collapse, which results in several stays in psychiatric hospitals, is woven through the book.

Dave Grohl (solo) and Nine Inch Nails are set to join James Gang, The Black Keys and The Breeders for ‘the concert for our veterans’, VetsAid. Some of the data that are collected include the number of visitors, their source, and the pages they visit anonymously. It’s telling that the most pro-active organisation Bodies describes is a charity partly funded by musicians themselves, which plans to set up hubs in venues and provide a kind of mental health MOT to audience members and performers alike.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 .
