Musicians strive to “keep it real”; listeners condemn “fakes”; ... but does great music really need to be authentic? Did Elvis sing from the heart, or was he just acting? Were the Sex Pistols more real than disco? Why do so many musicians base their approach on being authentic, and why do music buffs fall for it every time? By investigating this obsession in the last century through the stories of John Lennon, Kurt Cobain, Jimmie Rodgers, Donna Summer, Leadbelly, Neil Young, Moby, and others, Faking It rethinks what makes popular music work. Along the way, the authors discuss the segregation of music in the South, investigate the predominance of self-absorption in modern pop, reassess the rebellious ridiculousness of rockabilly and disco, and delineate how the quest for authenticity has not only made some music great and some music terrible but also shaped in a fundamental way the development of popular music in our time.

For all those Anthony Bourdain fans who are hungering for more, here is Nasty Bits - a collection of his journalism. As usual Bourdain serves up a well-seasoned hellbroth of candid, often outrageous stories from his worldwide misadventures. Whether scrounging for eel in the backstreets of Hanoi, revealing what you didn't want to know about the more unglamorous aspects of making television, calling for the head of raw food activist Woody Harrelson, or confessing to lobster-killing guilt, Bourdain is as entertaining as ever. The Nasty Bits is a rude, funny, brutal and passionate stew for fans and the uninitiated alike. .

Hamburg, 1960. Astrid has finished art school and now works as a photographic assistant. Her relationship with a young graphic designer, Klaus, is slowly fading. One night, following another argument, Klaus leaves, but returns late at night, excited about what he has discovered in the red-light district; a group from England playing rock 'n' roll. When Astrid eventually agrees to accompany him the following night, she doesn't know her life is about to change forever. This is the story of the 'fifth Beatle', Stuart Sutcliffe, and the love of his life, Astrid Kirchher.
