Description

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. It is also a book that touches on relationships between fathers and sons in a way that seems pleasantly tangential.

It felt fragmented without an over-arching or connective narrative, and while I enjoyed it, I’m not sure I would have read it if I knew what it was actually going to be like. Still, if you are interested in the music business and rock music in particular, this is a book worth reading.

Ian Winwood is a music journalist whose work has appeared in the Daily Telegraph, the Guardian, Kerrang! Absolutely essential for anyone wondering what it is like on this side of the fence, Bodies is as experienced as it is alarming. The second isn't an issue of credibility but more a personal wish to never ever be reminded of the case of the singer (whom I refuse to name) from the Welsh band Lostprophets. The guy seems likeable and honest and, even if I’m not a fan of most of the bands mentioned, the stories of life on the road were very interesting.

A jealousy-inducing ease to the prose throughout, Winwood has crafted the definitive experience of the music circuit.Much more than a touchline re- porter, Winwood also tells the tale of his own mental-health collapse following the shocking death of his father. 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.
