Description

I found this book disturbing, but ultimately positive as, for the author himself and bands still making music now there seems to be an improvement.

No other industry brags about a suicide squad (hello the ominous 27 Club - Amy Winehouse, Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, you know the drill) and no other industry fails to pay its employees, driving them to drink, drugs and death. The saga of Ian Watkins is, by some distance, the most shocking in Bodies, a book filled with shocking stories. Sure, it touches on the topic of suicides and overdoses but then it will drift to Twitter and streaming and money, all the while Ian tramps all of the places he's been and all the wonderful things he's experienced by you. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.Ian speaks to Stuart Richardson, formerly of Lostprophets, about how the spiralling methamphetamine use and uncontrollable narcissism of Ian Watkins distracted everyone, including his bandmates, from discovering the true depravity that would result in the frontman being sentenced to 29 years in prison for sex crimes against children.

It felt fragmented without an over-arching or connective narrative, and while I enjoyed it, I’m not sure I would have read it if I knew what it was actually going to be like.A real peek behind the curtain at the music industry, I had to keep stopping and starting this book as it took me to some dark places and was a little triggering. Much more than a touchline re- porter, Winwood also tells the tale of his own mental-health collapse following the shocking death of his father. Ian Winwood is a music journalist whose work has appeared in the Daily Telegraph , the Guardian , Kerrang!

The author comes across as another one of those self obsessed and odious individuals that plague the music industry. Some of the data that are collected include the number of visitors, their source, and the pages they visit anonymously. From Nobel Laureates Samuel Beckett and Harold Pinter to theatre greats Tom Stoppard and Alan Bennett to rising stars Polly Stenham and Florian Zeller, Faber Drama presents the very best theatre has to offer. The guy seems likeable and honest and, even if I’m not a fan of most of the bands mentioned, the stories of life on the road were very interesting.This book is full of cautionary accounts ( he's not afraid to mention names) and stories about the pitfalls /downside of the lives of many musicians and those working in music business , and of course Ian's own personal experiences of addiction and mental health issues.
