From a legendary journalist with four decades of unprecedented access and untold stories, an insider's behind-the-scenes look at the major personalities of rock and roll.
Lisa Robinson has interviewed everyone from John Lennon to Bono to Patti Smith, Eminem to Lady Gaga to Jay-Z and Kanye West. She's talked nail polish with a twelve-year-old Michael Jackson, hosted The Clash at Studio 54, and introduced Lou Reed to David Bowie over filet mignon in a Manhattan restaurant. She helped Elvis Costello and The Clash get their record deals. She had total access to the punk scene at CBGBs, was on a private plane with the Rolling Stones during a lightning storm and with Led Zeppelin when their tour manager pulled out a gun. Unlike any other journalist who covered this world, she was the only woman to break into this exclusive boys' club. The story of rock and roll for the last four decades is Lisa Robinson's story. She has lived and breathed music – the sound, the scene, the personalities – and she shares her stories all together here for the first time.

"Anyone who read rock magazines in the 1970s will remember Lisa Robinson as the tell-all columnist who gained access to the backstage world of rockÕs biggest and most outrageous superstarsÑin particular, The Rolling Stones and Led ZeppelinÑduring their creativeÑand decadentÑpeaks. In this memoir, which she narrates herself, she dryly recounts the maddening backstage whirl, which she remained a part of as late as the Ô80s, when she was reborn as an MTV talking head. RobinsonÕs unique voiceÑresonant but laced with the cynicism of a native New YorkerÑadds depth to her unique position as a kind of confidante to the stars. ItÕs the perfect vessel to deliver such deliciousÑand tellingÑbons mots as: ÒIn those days, nobody went to Brooklyn. There was no reason to.Ó J.S.H. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
