Corsair to publish Q magazine's rock star's guide to life

Corsair is publishing The 10 Commandments, a "rock star’s guide to life" from Q Magazine.

Publishing on 8th November, the guide promises to be "surprising, informative and at times outrageous", offering rules from over 50 musicians including Iggy Pop, Stevie Nicks, Mary J Blige and Bono. The book features fresh, previously unpublished material as well as drawing on the Q magazine archives.

James Gurbutt, publisher of Corsair, who acquired world rights from Q’s editor Ted Kessler, said: "We are very excited at the prospect of working with Q on The 10 Commandments. There’s a broad diversity of advice within these pages; often wise, pithy, honest –  some you’ll agree with, some you won’t and some that will make you laugh out loud.  In short, there’s something for everyone in here and every household that listens to anything from classic artists like Blondie, to modern superstars like Ed Sheeran, should own a copy."

Commenting on what he called an "important testament of rock star advice and philosophy", Kessler, editor of Q, added: "There is nobody so complete that a little worldly advice from Rod Stewart, Iggy Pop, Noel Gallagher or Stevie Nicks cannot improve. I can say this because it was not my idea but asking rock stars for their 10 pieces of core life lessons is a tremendous device if you want to absorb something deep and hilarious at the same time."
