Ian Gittins has interviewed and reviewed The Cure during a 30-year career as a music writer on titles such as Melody Maker, Time Out, Q and the Guardian. He is the co-author with Moetley Crue's Nikki Sixx of the 2007 New York Times best-seller The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star. He lives in London.
Gittins's research is impeccable... Packed with detail and
overflowing with photos and playlists, this is the perfect read to
celebrate four decades of lipstick-smeared greatness. * Classic
Full of photos, going as far back as the band's first demo recording so, visually, it ticks all the boxes... an enjoyable read and a feast for the eyes. The ageing goth in your life will love it. * Muso's Guide *
