Views: 11,982

From her days at the legendary Creem to today at Vanity Fair, Lisa Robinson has had an all-access pass to rock and roll history. She has interviewed such icons as John Lennon, Eminem, JayZ and Kanye West. She introduced David Bowie to Lou Reed and Iggy Pop, sat around a pool with a 12 year old Michael Jackson at his Encino home, and spent many hours talking with Lennon at his Dakota apartment. She helped The Clash and Elvis Costello get their record deals, was on a private plane with the Rolling Stones during a lightning storm and with Led Zeppelin when their tour manager pulled out a gun. She tells her stories on our stage in conversation with her friend Fran Lebowitz, and in the pages of her new book, There Goes Gravity: A Life in Rock and Roll.
