“Money, freedom, adoring fans: professional musicians seem to have it all.
But beneath the surface lies a frightening truth: for years the music industry
has tolerated death, addiction and exploitation in the name of entertainment.

“Ian Winwood explores the industry’s reluctance to confront its many failures in
a far-reaching story which features first-hand access to artists such as Foo Fighters,
Green Day, Trent Reznor, Biffy Clyro, Kings of Leon, Chris Cornell, Mark Lanegan,
Pearl Jam. Much more than a touchline reporter, Winwood also tells the tale of his
own mental-health collapse following the shocking death of his father.

“Written with warmth, humour and bracing honesty, Bodies is a deeply
personal story and essential reading for musicians and fans alike.”
