When teenager Kimberly Denise Jones, better known as Lil' Kim burst onto the hip-hop scene in the mid-nineties, no one was prepared for how she would shake-up the entire music industry. In 1996, she dropped her solo debut album, Hard Core, which topped the Billboard charts, went doubleplatinum, and is now widely considered to be one of the most influential rap albums of all-time. With her dynamic lyricism, her unflappable no-nonsense attitude, her iconic looks both on and off the red carpet, and her unapologetic sexuality, Lil' Kim quickly established herself as a force to be reckoned with-and was crowned the Original Queen Bee. In this debut memoir, Lil' Kim reveals everything that really went on behind-the-scenes of her legendary career, much of it for the very first time publicly.

Here's the story of one of the most successful and revered recording artists in pop-music history: the Carpenters - told for the first time from the perspective of the one person there for it all, Richard Carpenter. Making the scene with a clean-cut image on the heels of Woodstock, the Carpenters were shunned by many contemporaries, critics and even by those within their own record company. In The Musical Legacy, Richard reflects on the Carpenters' journey with heart and humor, but also speaks candidly about the high price of success. Richard has given the authors unprecedented access, including hours of new interviews and thousands of never-before published images from his personal archive. With interest in the Carpenters at a new peak, The Musical Legacy gives Richard Carpenter a perfectly timed platform to shed light on the duo's story and set records straight, making for the definitive biography.

The only official biography of the iconic DJ, Avicii whose death in 2018 shocked the world.
Tim Bergling was a musical visionary who, through his sense for melodies, came to define the era when Swedish and European house music took over the world.

But Tim Bergling was also an introverted and fragile young man who was forced to grow up at an inhumanly fast pace. After a series of emergencies resulting in hospital stays, he stopped touring in the summer of 2016. Barely two years later, he took his own life.

Tim - The Biography of Avicii is written by the award-winning journalist Måns Mosesson, who through interviews with Tim's family, friends and colleagues in the music business, has intimately gotten to know the star producer. The book paints an honest picture of Tim and his search in life, not shying from the difficulties that he struggled with.

'Having entertained the idea for years, and even offered a few questionable opportunities ('It's a piece of cake! Just do four hours of interviews, find someone else to write it, put your face on the cover, and voila!'), I have decided to write these stories just as I have always done, in my own hand. The joy that I have felt from chronicling these tales is not unlike listening back to a song that I've recorded and can't wait to share with the world, or reading a primitive journal entry from a stained notebook, or even hearing my voice bounce between the Kiss posters on my wall as a child.
This certainly doesn't mean that I'm quitting my day job, but it does give me a place to shed a little light on what it's like to be a kid from Springfield, Virginia, walking through life while living out the crazy dreams I had as young musician.

From hitting the road with Scream at 18 years old, to my time in Nirvana and the Foo Fighters, jamming with Iggy Pop or playing at the Academy Awards or dancing with AC/DC and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, drumming for Tom Petty or meeting Sir Paul McCartney at Royal Albert Hall, bedtime stories with Joan Jett or a chance meeting with Little Richard, to flying halfway around the world for one epic night with my daughters… the list goes on.

I look forward to focusing the lens through which I see these memories a little sharper for you with much excitement.' - Dave Grohl

The most anticipated book in more than a decade by the legendary band, The Beatles: Get Back is the official account of the creation of their final album, Let It Be, told in The Beatles' own words, illustrated with hundreds of previously unpublished images, including photos by Ethan A. Russell and Linda McCartney. Half a century after the 1970 Let It Be album and film, this milestone book coincides with the global release of Peter Jackson's documentary feature film, The Beatles: Get Back. The book opens in January 1969, the beginning of The Beatles' last year as a band. The BEATLES (The White Album) is at number one in the charts and the foursome gather in London for a new project. Over 21 days, first at Twickenham Film Studios and then at their own brand-new Apple Studios, with cameras and tape recorders documenting every day's work and conversations, the band rehearse a huge number of songs, culminating in their final concert, which famously takes place on the rooftop of their own office building, bringing central London to a halt. The Beatles: Get Back tells the story of those sessions through transcripts of the band's candid conversations. Drawing on over 120 hours of sound recordings, leading music writer John Harris edits the richly captivating text to give us a fly-on-the-wall experience of being there in the studios. These sessions come vividly to life through hundreds of unpublished, extraordinary images by two photographers who had special access to their sessions-Ethan A. Russell and Linda Eastman (who married Paul McCartney two months later). Also included are many unseen high-resolution film-frames, selected from the 55 hours of restored footage from which Peter Jackson's documentary is also drawn. Legend has it that these sessions were a grim time for a band falling apart. However, as acclaimed novelist Hanif Kureishi writes in his introduction, 'In fact this was a productive time for them, when they created some of their best work. And it is here that we have the privilege of witnessing their early drafts, the mistakes, the drift and digressions, the boredom, the excitement, joyous jamming and sudden breakthroughs that led to the work we now know and admire.' Half a century after their final performance, this book completes the story of the creative genius, timeless music, and inspiring legacy of The Beatles.

If you are one of the many millions who watched the Oscar-winning film Bohemian Rhapsody you may suppose that Mary Austin was the love of Freddie Mercury's life, the woman who he could never quite let go of. The truth is more complicated.
Respected biographer and music journalist, Lesley-Ann Jones explores Freddie's romantic encounters - from his boarding school years in Panchgani, India to his final days spent bed-ridden at his sumptuous Kensington home. Here the author reveals why not a single one of his lovers ever really perfected the art of being his life partner. Love of My Life charts Freddie's many obsessions from Mary Austin, Barbara Valentin and final live-in lover Jim Hutton.

From a string of male love interests to his chaste passion for Spanish soprano Montserrat Caballe; from fellow rock stars Dave Clark, Elton John and his own co-band members in Queen, to 'cats and curios': his fascination for felines and his relentless extravagant shopping and collecting; from favourite cities around the world - New York, Montreux and Munich, in which he purchased lavish homes - to the 'food of love' - his music, and his voracious addiction to sex. Which of these was the real love of Freddie Mercury's life?

Based on personal interviews and encounters the author tells of Freddie Mercury's lesser known loves in order to paint a comprehensive picture of the legendary musician. Published on the 30th anniversary of his death, and what would have been Freddie Mercury's 75th year.

A TIMES BOOK OF THE YEAR 'Brilliant. The unwritten Bowie book that needed writing' CAITLIN MORAN 'Splendid. Provides plenty of evidence of Bowie's restless, rummaging intelligence, and his pleasure in the fact that books allow readers to slip into someone else's skin and try it on for size' THE TIMES 'A witty and enlightening analysis of Bowie's 100 essential books . . . A handy, amusing, light-touch precis' OBSERVER 'What is your idea of perfect happiness?' 'Reading.' 'What is the quality you most like in a man?' 'The ability to return books.' Three years before he died, David Bowie made a list of the one hundred books that had transformed his life - a list that formed something akin to an autobiography. From Madame Bovary to A Clockwork Orange, the Iliad to the Beano, these were the publications that had fuelled his creativity and shaped who he was. In Bowie's Books, John O'Connell explores this list in the form of one hundred short essays, each offering a perspective on the man, performer and creator that is Bowie, his work as an artist and the era that he lived in. Brilliantly illustrated throughout and the perfect gift for Bowie fans and book lovers, Bowie's Books is much more than a list of books you should read in your lifetime: it is a unique insight into one of the greatest minds of our times, and an indispensable part of the legacy that Bowie left behind.

Channel Kindness is a collection of fifty-one stories of kindness, bravery, and resilience from young people all over the world collected by the Born This Way Foundation and introduced by Lady Gaga. For Lady Gaga, kindness is the driving force behind everything she says and does. The quiet power of kindness can change the way we view one another, our communities, and even ourselves. She embodies this mission, and through her work, brings more kindness into our world every single day. Lady Gaga has always believed in the importance of being yourself, being kind to yourself and others, no matter who they are or where they come from. With that sentiment in mind, she and her mother, Cynthia Germanotta, founded Born This Way Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to making the world a kinder and braver place. Through the years, they've collected stories of kindness, bravery, and resilience from young people all over the world, proving that kindness truly is the universal language. And now, we invite you to read these stories and follow along as each and every young author finds their voice, just as Lady Gaga has found hers. Within these pages, you'll meet young changemakers who found their inner strength, who prevailed in the face of bullies, who started their own social movements, who decided to break through the mental health stigma and share how they felt, who created safe spaces for LGBTQ+ youth, and who have embraced kindness with every fiber of their being by helping others without the expectation of anything in return.

Individually and collectively, the stories collected here prove that kindness not only saves lives but builds community. Kindness is inclusion, it is pride, it is empathy, it is compassion, it is self-respect and it is the guiding light to love. Kindness is always transformational, and its never-ending ripples result in even more kind acts that can change our lives, our communities, and our world.

As one of the most celebrated musicians of our time, Alicia Keys has enraptured the nation with her heartfelt lyrics, extraordinary vocal range, and soul-stirring piano compositions. Yet away from the spotlight, Alicia has grappled with private heartache over the challenging and complex relationship with her father, the people-pleasing nature that characterized her early career, the loss of privacy surrounding her romantic relationships, and the oppressive expectations of female perfection.
Since her rise to fame, Alicia's public persona has belied a deep personal truth: she has spent years not fully recognizing or honoring her own worth. After withholding parts of herself for so long, she is at last exploring the questions that live at the heart of her story: Who am I, really? And once I discover that truth, how can I become brave enough to embrace it?

More Myself is part autobiography, part narrative documentary. Alicia's journey is revealed not only through her own candid recounting, but also through vivid recollections from those who have walked alongside her. The result is a 360-degree perspective on Alicia's path: from her girlhood in Hell's Kitchen and Harlem, to the process of self-discovery she's still navigating.

In More Myself, Alicia shares her quest for truth: about herself, her past, and her shift from sacrificing her spirit to celebrating her worth. With the raw honesty that epitomizes Alicia's artistry, More Myself is at once a riveting account and a clarion call to readers: to define themselves in a world that rarely encourages a true and unique identity.

The pieces in this collection - short reflections on well-known classical compositions - have appeared in concert programmes that have accompanied performances by the Cape Town and Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestras.

Die ou bekende en geliefde FAK-sangbundel het in 2012 'n welkome aanvulling gekry. Liedjies wat die afgelope 40 jaar in Afrikaanse musiek geblom het, kry plek in die nuwe Volume II. Hierdie nuwe sangbundel maak plek vir 400 liedjies wat geskryf en gesing is sedert die vorige uitgawe van 1979. Vanjaar, 2012, is ook die 75ste bestaansjaar van die FAK-sangbundel en juis daarom is besluit om die wonder van Afrikaanse musiek behoorlik te vier met die uitreiking van 'n nuwe sangbundel. Die nuwe rubrieke sluit in: Immergroen &populêr; Kleinkuns; Kinderliedjies; Geestelike liedjies; Tradisionele liedjies; Kunsmusiek en Koormusiek.

Van die gewildste en bekendste werke deur Afrikaanse musieklegendes soos Rina Hugo, Gé Korsten, Chris Chameleon, Steve Hofmeyr, die Briels, Anton Goosen en Laurika Rauch is in die bundel vervat, met treffers soos 'Ballade vir 'n enkeling','De la Rey', 'Engel', 'Houtkruis' en 'Kinders van die wind'. Kenners van Afrikaanse musiek, soos Mimi Coertze, Wessel van Wyk, Anneke Lamont en wyle Christa Steyn was betrokke by die keuse van die beste uit die nuwere Afrikaanse musiekskat.

Die nuwe FAK-sangbundel vervang nie die ou bundel met sy bekende volksliedjies soos Aanstap Rooies, My hartjie, my liefie en Sarie Marais nie. Die nuwe bundel is eerder daarop gemik om die skatkis van Afrikaanse musiek wat bewaar moet word, uit te brei.

Benewens die rubriekindeling het die bundel ook 'n register volgens liedere se titels en eerste reëls.
