With more than 100 million albums sold and musical collaborations ranging from Bono and Mick Jagger to Katy Perry and Joss Stone, Dave Stewart has lived a life that most  people only dream about.

Stewart’s new book, “Sweet Dreams Are Made of This,” features never-before-seen photographs and anecdotes about Stewart’s experience with sex, drugs and rock & roll. Stewart opens up about his personal relationship with the second half of Eurythmics, Annie Lennox, and gives readers an inside look into the life of a successful rock star.

Early in his book Stewart writes, “Looking back during the writing of this book has been a lot of fun although it’s sometimes difficult to remember the times that I’d rather forget.”

He sits with Larry Mantle today to discuss his new book and share some unforgettable experiences.

Dave Stewart will be discussing his new book, “Sweet Dreams Are Made of This: A Life in Music” at the Skirball Cultural Center tonight, Wednesday, February 17 at 8:00 p.m. Click here for more information. ​
