Publisher's Summary

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.

Fun with great insights

An interesting and fun recounting of several decades of rock journalists. She definitely spent a lot of time with music giants but she makes them all very human and intriguing through this book. A good ride.

" A MUST READ FOR THE TRUE ROCK FAN"

Lisa Robinson is the originally Rock n Roll critic she created the craft and has single handedly and masterfully remain at the top of the New York music scene for all most four decades not a easy feat for a women in a male dominate field. I LOVED her stories about the CBGB days. Growing up in New Jersey I SO WONTED to be a part of that scene but by the time I was old enough to go to the clubs. CBGB and all the bands that play there were long gong.
