His concerts are always sell-outs. Becks life story is as extraordinary as the records he produces. His grandfather was one of the leaders of the 1960s avante-garde movement Fluxus, his mother was a Warhol starlet and his father a bluegrass musician. His childhood and adolescence spent in LA, Bible-belt Kansas, and the bohemian scene of Cologne led to the huge range of influences in his music, from hip-hop and punk to blues and spirituals. Beautiful Monstrosity tells the full story of Beck Hansen and explores the mythology that already surrounds this young man.
