There are people who make history and people who observe and report it. Lisa Robinson is one who saw a lot and wrote a lot about music giants. About rock solid entertainers who still deliver quality music from the 60s to present days! About enduring style and fashion so timeless that it can be recognized, admired and followed even after 50 years!
While we were listening to the Stones grooving at the radio back in the sixties, Lisa Robinson was with them on the road. And with Led Zeppelin, and Lou Reed, Freddie Mercury or David Bowie, reporting about the new makeup-artist David had fetch himself for a tour. And now she wrote a book about those years ‘There Goes Gravity: A Life in Rock and Roll’.

A book about legends. About their life and style. About those days when nobody used an army of stylist, they were as true as their voice, no gimmicks, no over-the-top scenery.
Coming from someone who counseled Bono on his hairstyle or who lent her perfume to Freddie Mercury, Lisa Robinson’s style memoirs are credible, valuable and inspiring. A collection of observations, no critics – like Lisa herself admitted, a rarity in the (rock) press – a gossipy, inspirational report about those who wrote (and continue to write) musical history!
