The 1975 shot perfectly illustrates why Robinson's so good at what she does: her access to big talent, the trust she gains with her subjects and her love of music.A lifetime New Yorker and now Vanity Fair music editor, Robinson fell into writing in 1969 when her future husband -- rock writer and producer Richard Robinson -- got her a gig writing for a music magazine, tapping into her passion and setting her on a path as one of the first female rock journalists.The book focuses on the music, offering few personal details, but an intimate, familiar tone. Tracing the evolution of U2, Robinson shows how, despite talent and good intentions, a band can lose its way in the tornado of success.Robinson writes affectionately about most rockers but does get in a few jabs.Robinson must have many more stories to share.
