The definitive biography of singer-songwriter Nick Lowe, best-known for "Cruel to Be Kind" and "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding" Described as "Britain's greatest living songwriter," Nick Lowe has made his mark as a pioneer of pub rock, power-pop, and punk rock and as a producer of Elvis Costello, Graham Parker, the Damned, and the Pretenders. He has been a pop star with his bands Brinsley Schwarz and Rockpile, a stepson-in-law to Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, and is the writer behind hits including "Cruel to Be Kind" and "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding." In the past decades, however, he has distinguished himself as an artist who is equally acclaimed for the second act of his career as a tender yet sharp-tongued acoustic balladeer. Biographer Will Birch, who in addition to being a music writer was a drummer and songwriter with The Records, has known Lowe for over forty years and melds Lowe's gift as a witty raconteur with his own authoritative analysis of Lowe's background and the cultural scenes he exemplifies. Lowe's parallel fame as one of the best interviews in the business will contribute to this first look into his life and work--and likely the closest thing fans will get to an autobiography by this notoriously charming cult figure. This is not an authorized biography, but Lowe has given it his spiritual blessing and his management and label are fully on board. Cruel to Be Kind will be the colorful yet serious account of one of the world's most talented and admired musicians.… (mer)

Cruel To Be Kind: The Life and Music of Nick Lowe

BIG KICK, PLAIN SCRAP.
From his childhood, spent with his his dad Drain, in the RAF, living in Surrey to the group Los Straitjackets, Will Birch shares the like of Nick Lowe. The man who wrote "( What's So Funny About) Peace Love and Understanding", "I Love The Sound of Breaking Glass", "Half A Boy and Half A Man" and, of course, "Cruel To Be Kind". I've admired his songwriting and think some of his work is truly brilliant. He is one of the best pop songwriters today.
Will writes of Nick's beginnings in Kipperton Lodge, and especially focuses on his days with Brinsley Schwarz. Its influence on Nick's future is evident.
Collaborating with Dave Edmund's and Elvis Costello, both extensively. The Bay City Rollers Tribute Album. Stiff Records. Rockpile and Los Straitjackets ( his most recent group with all members but Nick wearing Mexican Wrestling Outfits, with masks). He shares Nick's past addiction problems with LSD, alcohol and cocaine until he began dating Tracey MacLeod who helped him regain his self respect and responsibility. His marriage to Carlene Carter, and later to Peta Waddington. It's all here. I loved the rich detail without it becoming tedious. It thought it fresh and fun to read and you will come away with a good idea of who this brilliant artist is.
It includes an Appendix of his Real family history, and an extensive Bibliography and Discography. Recommended for Nick fans and fans of music, for sure.
Thanks to DeCapo and netgalley for sending e-book ARC for review. ( )
