- Kurzbeschreibung<p><i>This is a three-decade survivor´s tale ... a scenic search for elusive human happiness through music, magazines, silly jokes, stupid shoes, useless blokes, hopeless homes, booze, drugs, love, loss, A&E, death, disillusion and hope - while trying to make Prince laugh, startle Beyoncé, cheer Eminem up, annoy Madonna, drink with Shaun Ryder and finish off Westlife forever (with varying degrees of success).</i></p><p>In 1986, Sylvia Patterson boarded a train to London armed with a tea-chest full of vinyl records, a peroxide quiff and a dream: to write about music, for ever. She got her wish.</p><p>Escaping a troubled home, Sylvia embarks on a lifelong quest to discover The Meaning of It All. The problem is she´s mostly hanging out with flaky pop stars, rock ´n´ roll heroes and unreliable hip-hop legends. As she encounters music´s biggest names, she is confronted by glamour and tragedy; wisdom and lunacy; drink, drugs and disaster. And Bros.</p><p>Here is Madonna in her Earth Mother phase, flinging her hands up in horror at one of Sylv´s Very Stupid Questions. Prince compliments her shoes while Eminem threatens to kill her. She shares fruit with Johnny Cash, make-up with Amy Winehouse and several pints with the Manics´ lost soul-man Richey Edwards. She finds the Beckhams fragrant in LA, a Gallagher madferrit in her living room and Shaun Ryder and Bez as you´d expect, in Jamaica.</p><p>From the 80s to the present day, <i>I´m Not with the Band </i>is a funny, barmy, utterly gripping chronicle of the last thirty years in music and beyond. It is also the story of one woman´s wayward search for love, peace and a wonderful life. And whether, or not, she found them.</p>
