Our pals at Book Soup are hosting a killer event next week on Wednesday 2/17! It’s going to be a great evening of reading and performing! Tickets and information at the bottom of this post. Hope to see you there!

Dave Stewart’s life has been a wild ride one filled with music, constant reinvention, and the never-ending drive to create. Growing up in industrial northern England, he left home for the gritty London streets of the seventies, where he began collaborating and performing with various musicians, including a young waitress named Annie Lennox.   The chemistry between Stewart and Lennox was undeniable, and an intense romance developed. While their passion proved too much offstage, they thrived musically and developed their own sound. They called themselves Eurythmics and launched into global stardom with the massively popular album Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This).

For the first time, Stewart shares the incredible, high-octane stories of his life in music the drug-fueled adventures, the A-list collaborations and relationships, and the creative process that brought us blockbusters from Eurythmics like Here Comes the Rain Again and Would I Lie to Youas well as Tom Petty’s Don’t Come Around Here No More, No Doubt’sUnderneath It All, Golden Globe winner Old Habits Die Hard with Mick Jagger, and many more.

With a behind-the-scenes look at Stewart’s innovative endeavors that keep him on the cutting-edge of the music business, Sweet Dreams Are Made of This is a one-of-a-kind portrait of the creative heart of one of its most gifted and enterprising contributors. (New American Library)
