Book Description

30 Aug 2012

The story of how a painfully shy boy from the suburbs of Southampton made it to the biggest radio station in the UK, and just about managed to stay there...

Scott Mills is a daily companion to millions of listeners as the host of the afternoon show on Radio 1 - a station that has been his home for over 14 years. Whether regaling us with a typically embarrassing celebrity anecdote or trying to control a particularly chaotic round of 'Innuendo Bingo', his company is always brilliantly entertaining, thanks to his infectious enthusiasm and easygoing manner. But behind the microphone sits a man whose route to the top has been anything but straightforward.

In this witty and endearingly honest autobiography, Scott describes his incredible career and the hurdles he's faced along the way. Aside from the sometimes humiliating - and frequently hilarious - jobs that are part and parcel of a local radio DJ's apprenticeship, he's had to deal with crippling anxiety attacks, alcohol and weight issues, and a great deal more over the years. But his desire to land his dream job has always prevailed, and he's now one of the nation's favourite radio and television broadcasters, travelling the world on both serious assignments and altogether more bizarre adventures.

From washing cars on a garage forecourt off the A4 in the name of radio entertainment, to encounters with some of the world's biggest celebrities, Love You Bye provides Scott's legions of fans with a fascinating look at the man whose voice they know so well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finished it in an afternoon! 6 Sep 2012
By RK061
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a longtime listener of Scott's show I was interested to read more about him. I really did read it all in a couple of hours on my kindle (which I was THRILLED to see still contains the autobiography pictures that I was wondering whether the kindle version would include.) I found that I had heard some of the stories on the radio show before, but this is not a bad thing it just shows that Scott really is himself on the radio. Love You Bye makes me genuinely want to be friends with Scott Mills, and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who listens to the show or who is a fan of Scott.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too short and lacks a punch 19 Sep 2012
Format:Hardcover
I'm a long time listener to Scott's show and think he's a great bloke.
But this autobiography is a huge let down. Firstly, once you take away the photos, it comes in at under 200 pages. In a relatively large font. I'd expect that in an autobiography of a One Direction member, not a man who's been around as long as Scott.

It feels rushed... key moments in his life like the loss of a loved on are glossed over in a few short pages, we never really get to know why he was such a profound person in Scott's life.
Likewise his coming out - he explains how he told his family, but there's no details on growing up gay at school, how his friends reacted etc. I know he doesn't want his sexuality to define him, but in an autobiography it deserves more than the space it received.

Equally his descent into alcohol abuse is also interesting, but then suddenly seems to end - it's as if he feels like he'll be boring us if if he dedicates more than two pages to any one subject.

Chapters on his documentary for BBC3 about the world's worst place to be gay are fascinating - it's clearly a subject he feels passionate about - it's a shame that he's not as passionate about telling us about the rest of his life.

If you don't really care about Scott and just want celebrity anecdotes, then this is for you. But often they are too brief. Chapters feel like links between songs - brief and to the point, with no flesh to their bones sp as not to bore the reader/ listener before the next song is played.

This book is for people with a low attention span who wants a quick read. But for those of us who wanted to know more about the man who has kept us entertained for more than a decade, you'll learn almost as much from this book as you would by listening to one of his shows.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Read for Scott Mills fans 27 Mar 2014
By Mtg
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ive been a Scott Mills fan for a few years now but dont get to listen as much now due to the ridiculous decision to move his slot to early afternoon.

The book itself is honest and interesting throughout. Its a good read, a little short and there are some things that it would have been nice if he'd have gone into more detail over. However all in all I really enjoyed reading this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars A short but likeable book 10 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm quite a big fan of the Scott Mills radio show, so this was the main reason I purchased the book. it's quite short, but the good thing is there is not much, if any, filler. If you are a fan of Scott's radio show then I think you will really enjoy this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyed this as am a regular listener to his show
Really enjoyed this as am a regular listener to his show. It was written in his own words and although not a literary classic, a good easy read with some very touching moments.

5.0 out of 5 stars A surprising tale
I was really surprised to find that Scott isn't the ultra confident person he seems on his radio show. A very candid piece of writing.
