The First Time is a new book that's taken from the acclaimed BBC Radio 6 music show of the same name.
 
It invites fans inside the lives of well-known artists such as Elton; Alice Cooper; Yoko Ono; and Courtney Love.

The book follows their lives and careers starting with their first musical memories, first records, and first gigs. Readers can also learn about the songs that have shaped the performers along the way.

There are 40 interviews, specially commissioned collage illustrations, and a bespoke playlist for each musician.

 
The author is Matt Everitt, BBC 6 Music and BBC Radio 2 presenter, journalist, music consultant and producer.
