Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"Sparkling with dry-yet-gossipy wit... leave[s] readers wanting more... whets the appetite for a continuation of Robinson's analyses of a business she not only witnessed, but affected." – BUST

"[A] compulsively readable spring book ... an all-access pass to rock 'n' roll history." – Departures

"Filled with candid stories about the women (and men) who make the rock world go round, by... one of the few female journalists along for the ride." – Elle, featured in the April 2014 "Must-Do Checklist"

“A lifetime of memories from classic rock’s heyday by one of the finest rock journalists of her generation….It’s a fantastic collection of stories, partially due to the fact that Robinson is a top-notch writer and partly since she enjoyed completely unfettered access and the genuine friendship of figures ranging from John Lennon to Phil Spector….The scope of Robinson’s memoir lends it an extraordinary spirit.” – Kirkus (starred)
 
“Fascinating…Plenty of music fans will be more than ready for this…genial and opinionated walk on the wild side.” – Booklist

"It is Robinson's voice, straightforward and intimate, that makes this work stand out from the pack....A particularly entertaining rock and roll memoir that will appeal to a wide audience." – Library Journal

"There Goes Gravity is a fast, fun read with delectable serving-sized chapters of rock & roll history... [Robinson's] stories are priceless, sharing excerpts from interviews old and new, as well as behind the scenes snapshots many people are not privy to." – Glide

Présentation de l'éditeur

From a legendary music journalist with four decades of unprecedented access, an insider's behind-the-scenes look at the major personalities of rock and roll.

Lisa Robinson has interviewed the biggest names in music--including Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones, John Lennon, Patti Smith, U2, Eminem, Lady Gaga, Jay Z and Kanye West. She visited the teenage Michael Jackson many times at his Encino home. She spent hours talking to John Lennon at his Dakota apartment--and in recording studios just weeks before his murder. She introduced David Bowie to Lou Reed at a private dinner in a Manhattan restaurant, helped the Clash and Elvis Costello get their record deals, was with the Rolling Stones on their jet during a frightening storm, and was mid-flight with Led Zeppelin when their tour manager pulled out a gun. A pioneering female journalist in an exclusive boys' club, Lisa Robinson is a preeminent authority on the personalities and influences that have shaped the music world; she has been recognized as rock jounralism's ultimate insider.

A keenly observed and lovingly recounted look back on years spent with countless musicians backstage, after hours and on the road, There Goes Gravity documents a lifetime of riveting stories, told together here for the first time.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 I'm at a loss- Can I get my money back? 3 juin 2014
Par Elizabeth F. Treacy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Reading these other reviews, I wonder if I am missing something or if these people are all personally connected to Ms. Robinson in some way. I have read her articles and read the excerpt in Vanity Fair so I picked up this book thinking it would be interesting. Far from it. Her attitude on 99% of the musicians she talks about is a "blase-it's-all-so-been-done-before" bent. The only musicians she really seems to tout are Television and The New York Dolls- the ones who did not obtain mainstream success so it must be "cool" to like them. None of the stories are all that interesting and the book jumps around in a disjointed manner. It has zero flow. Parts of it are simply remarkably boring (see: Phil Spector). These reviewers who says she really has a beat on the music/musicians- where are you finding this? Lisa Robinson is clearly very impressed with Lisa Robinson- even more so than any of the superb musicians she slyly bashes throughout the book (see: her insulting comments about David Bowie's early days). Her "too cool for school" presentation was simply off-putting to me. I had to struggle to slog through it. Far more interesting is Jancee Dunn's But Enough About Me which had music, humor, history and self-awareness as opposed to Robinson's self-absorption and fall-flat attempts at humor. I would say don't waste your money on this 300+ page ego trip.

I love rock history so I always find something to enjoy in a book like this. My 1st alarm went off when Lisa missed Led Zeppelin's explosion onto the American rock scene via their 69-70 tour because she didn't like them - I forget the wording used but it was something akin to them being rubes. The book has an elitist viewpoint and of course, she feels the best bands were from NYC and weren't commercially successful. That may all be true and I admire her success as a woman in a man's world but it appears Lisa was someone who was in the right place at the right time -- not necessarily because she was particularly talented. Perhaps I'm being harsh and she's being humble. In any case, I'm not sure I'll finish the book because Lisa saying she didn't like Kanye West until he announced after Katrina that Bush didn't like black people turned me off -- really? She really believes that?? She was also amused when he interrupted Taylor swift's award acceptance although she does admit no one agreed with her. I agree with the reviewer who said she is too cool for school -- Lisa lives in her own little world with no idea what goes in in the real one. Sorry but I wish I hadn't spent the money.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Hi, I'm Lisa and you're not. 12 août 2014
Par Edward Amos Dr - Publié sur Amazon.com

Welcome to my book, you lowlifes who do not live in the cultural mecca and oasis you commonly refer to as "New York City". Oh, and if you were not born into intelligencia left wing parents with an acute appreciation for the arts as produced by the downtrodden of the UK and NYC, well, forget my including you in the "hip" crowd of which I am a charter member. Oh, you said you were from Indiana or Kentucky or Florida? I will try to type slower for you so you can fully appreciate the ultimate grooviness of my words. Wait, I have to go now. I hear the dulcet tones of Mick, Keith, David, Lou, Ig (we call him that you know), Michael, Jimmy and my fave, Bob Plant, along with a few more of those hallowed and oh so gifted people calling me over to share some of their insights and emotional traumas. My name is Lisa and I am your guide, you oh so limited people, to the greatness of "rock journalism" as invented by me. I will leave you now so I can grok in my hallowed ground of Manhattan with the cultural gods only I can truly appreciate. But I will, so noble on my part, share some stories that fully illustrate my sitting at the right hand of the fathers almighty. Did I mention I probably was the inspiration for "stairway to heaven"? at least the first 7 minutes of that opus. I think my oh so hip hubby was the muse for the guitar solo at the end. Not sure, I will ask Jim the next time we get together.

Ok...I tricked you... I'm not Lisa...(hey, that would make a good song title for someone.....) I got my copy from the library and didn't make it all the way through. I found out I am just not worthy of completing this tome. Hopefully, I have saved one of you the time and energy of trying.

Methinks the world was a better place when we really didn't know that much about the folks that made great records. Like many, I get sucked into reading stuff about these guys and then wish I didn't bother most of the time. Rock musicians make great rock musicians. Not so hot as people for the most part, or at least that is my impression after reading Lisa's ode to herself and friends.

Ok, time for me to shove off and plan my trip to the upper West Side to try to get at least a smidgen of the cool that oozes from Lisa's skin. And look for the next stupid rock star autobiography. Any suggestions? Wait, if you are not from NYC you probably don't have the brains (like me) to discern the great from the tripe of the world. Or at least that is what goddess Lisa says. Right, Lou?

The author forgets the most basic rule of reporting--you are not the star. To get to the interesting tidbits about Mick, etc you have to wade through all sorts of self-obsessed BS. She names about 1000,000 "friends", as if any would have spoken to her were she not a writer for major publications.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Ok. Not great. 15 mai 2014
Par A. Peterfy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
There are some fun anecdotes, but overall, this book didn't live up to my expectations. For a "journalist", I thought the book was not particularly well-written, and she tends to use some of the same phrases over and over again. I also thought that it was rather inappropriate of her to inject her political beliefs; it's not a book about politics, it's about sex, drugs and rock and roll. I think there are other books out there that do the same thing, only much better, and they don't contain Ms. Robinson's ethnocentric view that the only music that's really worthwhile is music that originated in New York.
