Lips Unsealed by Belinda Carlisle
Requirements: Epub & Mobi reader
The women of the iconic eighties band the Go-Go’s will always be
remembered as they appeared on the back of their debut record: sunny,
smiling, each soaking in her own private bubble bath with chocolates and
champagne. The photo is a perfect tribute to the fun, irreverent brand
of pop music that the Go-Go’s created, but it also conceals the trials
and secret demons that the members of the group—and, in particular, its
lead singer, Belinda Carlisle—struggled with on their rise to stardom.
her unstable childhood home at the age of eighteen, Belinda battled
serious weight issues, having been teased for her pudginess throughout
grade school, and grappled with her confusion about being deserted by
her biological father as a child. This talented but misguided teen found
solace in the punk rock world that so openly welcomed misfits—even
though acceptance had its price.
Not long after
forming, the Go-Go’s became queens of the L.A. punk scene—they sold out
venues, attracted a fiercely loyal fan base, and outpartied almost every
male band they toured with—and in the process kicked down the doors to
the all-boys’ club of eighties rock and roll. With a chart-topping debut
album, Belinda found herself launched to international superstardom—and
with that fame came more access to A-list parties, and even more
and drugs to fuel Go-Go’s mania. Inevitably, Belinda began to self-destruct.
Unsealed is filled with the wild stories that Belinda Carlisle fans are
dying to hear—stories about the band’s crazy days on tour with acts
like the Police and Madness and the fabulous parties and people to whom
the Go-Go’s had exclusive access. But more than that, this candid memoir
reveals the gritty flip side to the glitz, as Belinda shares her
private struggles with abusive relationships, weight, and self-esteem,
and a thirty-year battle with drug and alcohol addiction.
spellbinding and shocking look at her rise, fall, and eventual rebirth
as a wife, mother, and sober artist will leave you wistfully fantasizing
about the eighties decadence she epitomized, but also cringing at the
dark despair hidden behind her charming smile. One of the rare
adventures through rock stardom told by a woman, Lips Unsealed is
ultimately a love letter to music—to the members of the Go-Go’s, who’ve
maintained lifelong friendships, and to the beloved husband and son who
led Belinda to sobriety—and the story of a life that, though deeply
flawed, was, and is still, fully lived.
For almost forty years, Sammy Hagar has been a fixture
in rock music. From breaking into the industry with the band Montrose
to his multiplatinum solo career to his ride as the front man of Van
Halen, Sammy's powerful and unforgettable voice has set the tone for
some of the greatest rock anthems ever written—songs like "I Can't Drive
55," "Right Now," and "Why Can't This Be Love."
Sammy tells the outrageous story of his tear through rock 'n' roll.
From the decadence of being one of the world's biggest rock stars to the
unfiltered story of being forced out of Van Halen, Sammy's account
spares no one, least of all himself. His is a tale of a true rock 'n'
roller—someone who's spent decades bringing the party with him wherever
he goes but always headin' back to Cabo for mÁs tequila.
