Publisher Description

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.

Unique perspective

I've read several books describing a musician's life on the road, but Lisa Robinson has described it from her unique perspective. Often, the life is described from a detached, jounalistic point of view, but in this case, the details are written so simply that they come across more genuine and real. Ms. Robinson gives us what feels like a true sense of these goings-on and it is riveting. She was, after all, right there...

There Goes Gravity

For anyone interested in rock music from circa 1970 until the present day this author has interviewed EVERYBODY. At least everybody of any interest. Although at times a little fragmented it is a surprisingly intimate view of many of the great bands, singers and acts from the past 4 decades. It's a fascinating history written by someone who experienced much of it first hand.

Chako Kanyon ,
