What links Lead Belly, Lonnie Donegan and Black Betty? Whose gravestone inspired Phil Spector's first hit? And for which song did Johnny Rotten replace the singer from Def Leppard? The rich history of popular music is built on a foundation of classic songs. From Tin Pan Alley to the Brill Building, Bob Dylan to Kurt Cobain, and Joni Mitchell to Amy Winehouse, gifted songwriters have crafted a cherished body of music that has become part of our lives. Imagine the Fifties without the magical clamor of "Tutti Frutti" and "Hound Dog" the Seventies without the anthemic "Le Freak" and "Anarchy in the UK" or the Noughties without the Leftfield pop of "Toxic" or "Crazy". This music mirrors the times, both reflecting society at large ("A Change is Gonna Come", "The Message") and mapping our own personal highs ("God Only Knows") or lows ("Hurt"). And from 'Saturday Night Fish Fry' to Saturday Night Fever, it has helped us simply forget our problems. 1001 Songs You Must Hear Before You Diepicks through nearly a century of music to bring you an inspiring selection of some of the greatest recordings ever made. Each entry in this wonderfully browsable book tells the story of a great song. Find out what inspired the songwriter, what makes the track so enduring, which songs it influenced in turn and which cover version to listen out for. You'll also pick up a wealth of fascinating trivia along the way.

«Ich glaube, es ist so: Am Anfang tut man alles, um ein Star zu werden, und den Rest seiner Karriere verbringt man damit, als Star zu überleben.» Wie er zum Star wurde, beschrieb Robbie Williams 2004 in seiner Autobiographie «Feel», einem weltweiten Bestseller. In seinem neuen Buch schildert er, was danach passierte. Wie er gegen Depressionen und Alkoholismus kämpfte, sich aus dem Popgeschäft zurückzog, UFOs beobachtete und die Einsamkeit suchte, wie er Ehemann und zweifacher Vater wurde und nun, nach der Versöhnung mit seinem musikalischen Partner Guy Chambers, mit seinem elften Album «The Heavy Entertainment Show» wieder in die Öffentlichkeit zurückkehrt. Auch sein neues Buch entstand in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Musikjournalisten Chris Heath, der Williams in den vergangenen Jahren intensiv begleitete, ihn beim Komponieren und im Umgang mit seinen Kindern beobachtete. Daraus entstand ein intimer, unzensierter Bericht über den Robbie Williams der vergangenen zehn Jahre; eine Reportage über den Popstar und Privatmann und darüber, was es heißt, als Star zu überleben. Denn Robbie ist zurück – Vorhang auf! «Es ist das Tagebuch eines modernen Entertainers und seiner unsteten Gedankenwelt, die Geschichte eines Popstars, der versucht, sich selbst wiederzufinden, nachdem er aus dem Vorruhestand zurückgekehrt ist. Es ist wahr, lustig, manchmal traurig, gut geschrieben und sehr unterhaltsam. Ich hoffe, dass die Menschen Spaß daran haben.» Robbie

This book is an unashamed celebration of the landmark album Slippery When Wet; Bon Jovi's most successful album to date, with sales of over 28 million copies since its 1986 release, and one of the most toe-tappingly gleeful albums to ever ring out from a pair of speakers. Everyone knows the rock classics 'Livin' On A Prayer' or 'You Give Love A Bad Name', but there isn't a bum track on the record.This is more than a 'making of' type book, because to put Slippery When Wet into context you need to understand what came before and after. It is also a handy fans' guide to the band's career with a track by track review, current thoughts on the album from top rock writers, plus bits and pieces that relate directly (or indirectly) to the legacy of a record which spent eight straight weeks at the top of the Billboard charts.The band, of course, are still with us and released an album in the spring of 2013 along with tour dates, which will heighten interest in the book. Their fan base is seriously loyal.Includes a foreword by former Kerrang! journalist and rock expert Paul Suter and an afterword by A&R supremo Derek Shulman (Simon Dupree And The Big Sound and Gentle Giant), who had the foresight to sign the band.
