Product Overview

Bobby Womack is a legend--a phenomenally gifted singer, songwriter, and guitarist with 40 albums and 30 million record sales to his name. A protege of Sam Cooke, Womack wrote classics that include "Lookin' for a Love" and "It's All Over Now" (a smash-hit for the Rolling Stones). Their success helped make him a star, but ongoing battles with drugs and the record industry nearly destroyed him. Behind his music lies a life scorched by tragedy, beginning with his impoverished childhood in Cleveland, to his years touring and recording with the greats--including James Brown, Jimi Hendrix, Sam Cooke, Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Eric Clapton, and Elvis Presley--and through the years of drugs, partying, and riotous abuse, this is the authentic voice of a major soul artist.

From the Publisher
Editors Note Bobby Womack's is the story of R&B and soul itself, a crucial link between the gospel of the 1950s and the greatest soul and rock of the 1960s and 1970s. In a turbulent life, Womack was one of the last to see his friend Janis Joplin shortly before she died and was one of the key witnesses to the mysterious shooting of Sam Cooke.
