Dylan Jones’s engrossing, magisterial biography of David Bowie is unlike any Bowie story ever written. Drawn from over 180 interviews with friends, rivals, lovers, and collaborators, some of whom have never before spoken about their relationship with Bowie, this oral history weaves a hypnotic spell as it unfolds the story of a remarkable rise to stardom and an unparalleled artistic path. Tracing Bowie’s life from the English suburbs to London to New York to Los Angeles, Berlin, and beyond, its collective voices describe a man profoundly shaped by his relationship with his schizophrenic half-brother Terry; an intuitive artist who could absorb influences through intense relationships and yet drop people cold when they were no longer of use; and a social creature equally comfortable partying with John Lennon and dining with Frank Sinatra. By turns insightful and deliciously gossipy, David Bowie is as intimate a portrait as may ever be drawn. It sparks with admiration and grievances, lust and envy, as the speakers bring you into studios and bedrooms they shared with Bowie, and onto stages and film sets, opening corners of his mind and experience that transform our understanding of both artist and art. Including illuminating, never-before-seen material from Bowie himself, drawn from a series of Jones’s interviews with him across two decades, David Bowie is an epic, unforgettable cocktail-party conversation about a man whose enigmatic shapeshifting and irrepressible creativity produced one of the most sprawling, fascinating lives of our time.

Selten zuvor hat ein Bühnenkünstler seine eigene Geschichte mit solch einer Kraft und solch einem lodernden Feuer niedergeschrieben. Wie viele seiner Songs (“Thunder Road”, “Badlands”, “Darkness on the Edge of Town", “The River”, “Born in the U.S.A.", “The Rising" oder “The Ghost of Tom Joad”, um ein paar wenige zu erwähnen) ist Bruce Springsteens Autobiografie geprägt von der Lyrik eines einzigartigen Songwriters und der Weisheit eines Mannes, der ausgiebig über sein Leben nachgedacht hat.

Als das erste Tape zu Ende ist, wissen wir, dass Renée an einer Lungenembolie gestorben ist. Rob Sheffield hat die ganze Nacht nicht geschlafen, sondern diese Kassette gehört, die seine Frau ihm hinterlassen hat. Es ist ihr letztes Date, nur Rob, Reneé und ein paar Songs. In »Love is a Mix Tape« erzählt Rob Sheffield, Redakteur beim amerikanischen »Rolling Stone«, entlang von 15 Kassetten die Geschichte seiner kurzen Beziehung zu Renée, einem Mädchen, das eigentlich viel zu cool für den schüchternen Rob war, das sich aber trotzdem in ihn verliebte. Ein Punkrock-Girl, wie es sie nur in den neunziger Jahren gab, als Pavement, Nirvana und R.E.M. eine Musik-Explosion auslösten. Aber auch Elvis, die Rolling Stones, Missy Elliott, Yo La Tengo gehören zum Soundtrack ihrer gemeinsamen Geschichte. Sie heiraten, leben zusammen, kaufen sich einen Hund, und dann stirbt Renée. Rob schafft es nicht, in der Wohnung zu bleiben, meidet Restaurants und Lokale, die er mit Renée besucht hat. Er schläft nicht und sucht Antworten in der Musik. Dabei ist es unwichtig, ob es sich um gute oder schlechte Songs handelt. Rob Sheffield gelingt es, unprätentiös, leicht und ohne falsche Hemmungen über den Verlust eines geliebten Menschen zu schreiben.

David Carr was an addict for more than twenty years -- first dope, then coke, then finally crack -- before the prospect of losing his newborn twins made him sober up in a bid to win custody from their crack-dealer mother. Once recovered, he found that his recollection of his 'lost' years differed -- sometimes radically -- from that of his family and friends. The night, for example, his best friend pulled a gun on him. 'No,' said the friend (to David's horror, as a lifelong pacifist), 'It was you that had the gun.' Using all his skills as an investigative reporter, he set out to research his own life, interviewing everyone from his parents and his ex-partners to the policemen who arrested him, the doctors who treated him and the lawyers who fought to prove he was fit to have custody of his kids. Unflinchingly honest and beautifully written, the result is both a shocking account of the depths of addiction and a fascinating examination of how -- and why -- our memories deceive us. As David says, we remember the stories we can live with, not the ones that happened.

What’s Love Got to Do with It: Die Lebensgeschichte einer der größten Pop-Ikonen unserer Zeit „Liebe hat mein Leben gerettet. Davon will ich erzählen.“ Tina Turner, die Königin des Rock ’n‘ Roll, wird bald 80 Jahre alt. Unter dem Eindruck einer lebensbedrohlichen Erkrankung, die sie aufgrund einer wunderbaren Wendung überwinden konnte, schildert sie erstmals ihre „ganze Geschichte“, wie sie sagt. Private Dancer, Simply the Best, I Can’t Stand the Rain – jeder, der Tina Turners Musik hört, ahnt etwas von ihrer Energie, ihrem Lebenswillen und nie versiegendem Mut, die sie aus der Enge der Kindheit in Tennessee auf die Bühnen der Welt brachten. Mit ihrem Ehemann Erwin Bach durfte sie schließlich auch das lang ersehnte persönliche Glück erleben. „My Love Story“ ist eine Liebeserklärung an das Leben und die zutiefst bewegende und inspirierende Überlebensgeschichte einer starken Frau. Das Buch enthält zahlreiche Abbildungen, darunter viele bisher unveröffentlichte aus Privatbesitz.
