Overview

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.

Praise

Praise for There Goes Gravity
 
“A little history, a little criticism, and a ton of gossip: That’s the recipe for Robinson’s compulsively readable chronicle of her own years as one of America’s preeminent rock journalists.” —People (four-star review)
 
“Robinson’s declarative, almost brusque prose feels like a balm. She’s a precise, clear-eyed, and appealing narrator, whether she’s describing the state of American room service in the mid-1970s…or the Clash after the eviction of Mick Jones.” —Chicago Tribune

“[A] fantastic collection of stories, partially due to the fact that Robinson is a top-notch writer and partly since she enjoyed completely unfettered access and the genuine friendship of figures ranging from John Lennon to Phil Spector.…The scope of Robinson’s memoir lends it an extraordinary spirit.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
