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.
