‘Genuinely eye-popping’ Guardian ‘Electrifying’ Classic Rock
A Daily Telegraph and Irish Times Book of the Year, as extracted in Rolling Stone & LA Weekly
In Bodies, the must-read music book of the year, Ian Winwood explores the music industry’s many failures, from addiction and mental health issues to its ongoing exploitation of artists. Much more than a touchline reporter, Winwood’s far-reaching story features first-hand access to artists such as Foo Fighters, Green Day, Trent Reznor, Biffy Clyro, Kings of Leon, Chris Cornell, Mark Lanegan and Pearl Jam, while also telling the story of his own mental health collapse, following the shocking death of his father, in which extinction-level behaviour was given perfect cover by a reckless industry.
‘This is such a shrewd, funny, psychologically perceptive, frank, well-written, jawdropping book . Absolutely buy and read the hell out of this.’ DAVID STUBBS
‘Winwood makes a compelling argument and overturns some long-held notions about “rock and roll excess” by deftly tying together a vast amount of information . . . and liberally lacing it with dark, self-deprecating humour.’ ALEXIS PETRIDIS
