This vibrant book illustrates the failures and fairytales of the musical couples that came together – personally and professionally – to give us hope about everlasting love. Marisa Morea takes us through it all: from when Leonard Cohen met Janis Joplin in the elevator of Chelsea Hotel, to when Debbie Harry laid eyes on Chris Stein in a crowd in 1974, to the public fights and passionate reconciliations of Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin ... there are stories of drugs, drink, and brutal betrayal, but also of true love and old-fashioned romance. Traveling through all the feels, fixations, and heartbreaks that co-wrote the golden eras of pop and rock music, we relive the best of them with Ike and Tina Turner, Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain, John Lennon and Yoko Ono, June Carter and Johnny Cash, and so many more.
