With it increasingly out in the open though, hopefully more and more people contribute to the healing for this way of life.

Listen to the Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross-produced songs Even It Out and North, taken from Fever Ray’s recent-released album Radical Romantics.The Frank Turner/social media section was weirdly framed, though, and neglected to discuss the good faith criticism people of marginalised identities (not “cool kids” or “trolls”) have tried to engage with him on, including offline. Bodies is unflinching with its harsh truths, and Winwood’s anecdotal approach to these flows with extreme merit.

That much is explored with such creative and intimate detail from Winwood, who delves deep into his own career and the rich tapestry that forms it.And it’s a story still unfolding: in the gap between writing and publishing Bodies, two of the book’s subjects - Mark Lanegan and Taylor Hawkins - lie dead.

The guy seems likeable and honest and, even if I’m not a fan of most of the bands mentioned, the stories of life on the road were very interesting. In Bodies, author Ian Winwood explores the music industry’s many failures, from addiction and mental health issues to its ongoing exploitation of artists. he draws on his decades of interviewing bands in dressing rooms and tour buses - not to mention his own bracingly described drug hell - to examine why the industry attracts so many people vulnerable to addiction and mental health problems, and what happens to them once they are plugged into its dysfunctional amps.

interspersed with his own story of dealing with a serious addiction, this book mostly focuses on stories of bands with mental illness and how the industry doesn’t support them. How stressful it is, how drugs, alcohol, etc are normalized, but I feel like it didn't live up to its potential. And commendably, this isn't offered up as vicarious entertainment disengenously reframed as a cautionary tale in the last chapter or epilogue.
