Sweet Dreams Are Made of This
A Life in MusicBook - 2016
Dave Stewart's life has been a wild ride, 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. 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 the Eurythmics blockbusters. From great friendships and creative partnerships including the group SuperHeavy along with Mick Jagger, Joss Stone, Damian Marley, and A.R. Rahman, to inspired performances and intimate moments in the studio, Stewart highlights the musicians he admires and calls friends, from Bob Dylan, Stevie Nicks, Elton John, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr to Bono, Bon Jovi, and Katy Perry. With a behind-the-scenes look at Stewart's innovative endeavors that keep him on the cutting-edge of the music business.--Adapted from dust jacket.
