'Essential reading for any music lover' --The Independent

Présentation de l'éditeur

'The man who could make you cry when he sang' - RONNIE WOODBobby Womack was born on 4 March 1944, and died on 27 June 2014, aged 70. In a career that spanned two centuries and seven decades, the soul singer, songwriter and guitarist carved a niche for himself that has rarely been equalled, and never surpassed. He is, quite simply, irreplaceable.A phenomenally gifted musician, his incredible talent helped him to escape the ghetto and become a star, with 30 million record sales to his name. Yet behind his beautiful music lay a life scorched by tragedy. Having trod the harsh edge of the music business for decades, he finally told his explosive story in this intimate memoir. From finding success with his family gospel group The Valentinos and being whipped into shape by James Brown and Jimi Hendrix on the 'chitlin' circuit', to recording with Wilson Pickett, Eric Clapton and Elvis Presley, Womack's stellar career wove a colourful path through the history of soul, rock and R&B music. His collaborations with other musicians read like a roll of honour, from Aretha Franklin and Ray Charles to The Rolling Stones and Damon Albarn.Success came at a price, however. Womack lost his friend and mentor Sam Cooke when the soul star was gunned down in a motel. A doomed marriage to Cooke's widow followed, which severely damaged his reputation in the music business. Tragically, he lost two sons, one to suicide, as well as his brother Harry to a brutal murder. His escape was to turn to drugs. Years of riotous abuse took their toll on Womack and those closest to him - including Janis Joplin, who spent her last night drinking with the singer.But Womack's talent, searing guitar and soulful voice always survived. Cited as an influence by myriad musicians, even in death he remains the epitome of cool. Honest, insightful and unflinching, this is the authentic voice of the Midnight Mover, a supremely talented legend of music whose every day was lived to the full.'Essential reading for any music lover' - THE INDEPENDENT

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Bobby Womack is A Must Read!!!! 10 février 2015

I could not and did not put it down.I finished it the same day! The last time I read a more interesting book was the Help. There are moments in the book, when you will laugh out loud and look around the room, because you can actually feel Bobby telling the story. He was talented and hilarious. Coming up through the ranks with the greats like Sam, Ike, Ray and Janis and Jimi you know he had a story to tell. He was something special. Bobby was extraordinary.....not just the guy who married Sam Cooke's wife. Finally, the book in his words sets the record straight.

I am a Bobby Womack Fan. I Hated the Fact I Did Not Never Seen Him Perform But He Said If My Fans Never Saw Me Perform I Can Feel their Love. The Book Was Honest and When I Read It I Said I like That Song and I Remember What I Did When That Song Came Out. I Cannot Wait For The Bobby Womack Movie.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Telling It like It Is 17 juillet 2015
Par "CT-Cis" - Publié sur Amazon.com
Forty-Two yrs I have loved this 'Man' funny I never attended any Concert but then again I'm not that kinda 'Fan'. With Bobby Womack its been a long journey following his career, I've read a lot of Interviews and Articles its seems he would take command of those Interviews telling his experiences, the Love of Performing. One thing I read and heard him say If a woman meets someone she doesn't want to be with, then she should never 'Skin and Grin' for Men That's a Big Come On. Seems to me that's 'Hood Lingo' I learned running the Streets, Today when I hear Women who claim 'A Married Entertainer' spiced their drink and took advance of them, right way Bobby's words of wisdom come to mind-when you put yourself in Harm's way you will get burned! Bobby Womack's 'Just Wanna Get Close to You' long version on his "Communication" CD says it all The Recording Industry did not consider him to be Commerical enough!!! yet this high school drop-out was able to cut quite a path in The Entertainment Industry. Some day hopefully a movie will be made about Mr. Womack. RIP Bobby
