FRANCIS ROSSI I Talk Too Much – 2019 UK 320-page hardback book in which the Status Quo vocalist reveals the truth behind one of the biggest rock bands ever, as well as the personal highs and lows of a career spanning over fifty years. He lifts thelid of the man behind the music – from humble beginnings in Forest Hill and being labelled a has-been by the press in his twenties to opening Live Aid in 1985 – and why he’s still going strong at seventy. Painfully honest, riotously funny andfrequently outrageous ‘I Talk Too Much’ covers the glory years, the dark day and the real stories behind the creation of some of the greatest rock music of all time.

MOBY Then It Fell Apart – 2019 UK 416-page softback book published by Faber & Faber – This second volume of Moby’s extraordinary life story is a journey into the dark heart of fame and the demons that lurk just beneath the bling and bluster of the celebrity lifestyle. A memoir about the banality of fame; it is shocking, riotously entertaining, extreme, and unforgiving. It is unedifying, but you can never tear your eyes away from the page. Complete with the embossed fold-out outer cover, the book is in ‘as new’ condition!
