Your Cart is Empty
In this book we are going to know the (or one of the) moments of twenty-two key musicians in the history of popular music, in which they discovered that music was going to be the engine of their lives. The stories are based on real events, but they are literary creations around them. Some scenes are documented in biographies (such as Mick and Keith's meeting on the platform) and others are based on historical circumstances, but are pure fiction (such as Sting's bus trip). The other artists featured in this book are: Madonna, David Bowie, Charly García, Elvis Presley, Freddie Mercury, Aretha Franklin, John Lennon, Violeta Parra, Kurt Cobain, Lou Reed, Lady Gaga, Bob Dylan, Elton John, Adele, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Stevie Nicks, Ed Sheeran, Prince and Bono. Marcelo Comparini and Rosario Montiel, with the extraordinary illustrations of Olea as an essential complement, land the great stories of musicians we love, moments that could be tiny, but that helped define them, to turn them into the figures that aroused the idolatry of millions through the world.

With some imagination and with a language available to anyone, the anecdotes in this book allow us to understand where the impulse came from that made them what they are or what they were. And in passing, they even offer a route of exploration for those who begin this long and winding path of musical appreciation and fanaticism, if the clues that the authors have left along the way are followed.
In short, endearing stories, fundamental characters, essential songs. Stories to start learning and enjoying. Music for life.
