Win New Book 'Judy Garland: Heartbreaker' ... NOW!
'Judy Garland: Heartbreaker' is a memoir about Judy Garland, written by her former lover John Meyer. The two met and dated six months prior to Garland’s death, and the book does an incredible job of depicting Garland in her later days, and her unstable lifestyle.
Judy Garland died at the age of 47 of a drug overdose.
'Judy Garland: Heartbreaker' (Kensington) a memoir by songwriter John Meyer, recounts the story of Judy Garland’s penultimate love affair just seven months before her life was cut short by her drug habit at age 47.
If you ever wondered what life with a true diva is like, John Meyer gives us a magnifying-mirror close-up. Instantly smitten by her exuberance and energy, John found himself involved in Judy’s whirlwind life: a potent mix of humor, drug procurement and her own personal brand of kleptomania.
Judy’s fallen position in the entertainment industry resulted in desperate measures. With literally a five-dollar-bill in her purse, Judy accepted a fee of a hundred dollars to appear in a club run by one of her friends: an appearance John arranged. In rehearsing for this booking, the pair turned on the tape recorder, and their rehearsal, now transferred to CD, accompanies the book. A unique aural document, it features a tantalizing look into the great entertainer’s working method, as, relaxed and telling funny stories, she runs through her repertoire and learns John’s song in one hearing.
This CD opens a fascinating window into Judy’s persona, and it has been kept private for thirty-eight years!
“Judy’s spirit, voice, and sense of humor was intact to the very end,” Meyer explains. “Everyone had given up on her: they said she was ‘washed up’ but the Judy I met was still the brilliantly talented girl who sang “Over the Rainbow” and captured America’s heart. I made it my mission to revitalize her and put her back up there. But it didn’t work out that way.”
