Product Description

Book Description

A hugely entertaining memoir by one of the UK's most experienced and popular radio DJs.

From the Inside Flap

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 - but 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 life of the man whose voice they know so well.

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.

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.

A surprisingly diverting if at times a little lightweight read. Scott tells us the story of his early life and the development of his career, although the tale of him rising with little effort to end up at Radio One is possibly only of real interest to the dedicated radio fan. He pulls no punches about the personal issues he's faced growing up, whether panic attacks or the drinking problem he acknowledges he suffered with in the last decade. For the mainstream Mills fans the second half of the book is the real treat, talking at length about the features on his show and in the most powerful bit of all, detailing his trip to Uganda to make his famous documentary on their homophobic policies.

I'm not a Scott Mills fan and have never really heard any of his shows, but I came away with respect for him as a broadcaster and an entertainer.

I have always liked Scott Mills on the Radio and after much debate about whether there was anything I needed to know more about him I bought the book.

It was a book I couldnt put down. It is written in the style that many listeners to his Radio 1 show would be familiar with mixing serious issues with comical times and friends hes made as his career progressed. The book didnt dwell much on his childhood like some autobiographies do but this doesnt mean to say it shock sensationalist as its not. Its just a down to earth story about a guy who has a passion for radio get on the career ladder and progress and the fun and troubles he had along the way.

If your a fan of his Radio 1 show you wont be let down by the book at all

I am not usually a fan of the autobiography, let alone the cashing in on fame 'Celebrity' tome. This book however was a total revelation. I have loved Scott on the radio for years and after getting this book as a birthday present I picked it up intending to have a quick flick through. 3 hours later and I had finished the entire book. This is a very honest, immensely readable book. It is frank about such subjects as mental health and addiction but never loses the lighthearted, funny quips and observations that Scott's millions of listeners, me included, love.

Best autobiography of the year.

This book was a pleasure to read, cover to cover. The only downside is that I reached the end very quickly and would have loved to be able to read much more.
Scott Mills comes across as a very genuine guy who has met numeroud celebs and details random experiences that he has had with them. We are alkso treated to his path to Radio 1 and the stories of his numerous ex- boyfriends.
I'm hoping that sometime down the line, he'll bring out a follow-up to this. Can't wait!

Love You Bye is the autobiography of Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills. The book takes you on a journey of how he got started on radio and eventually landed his dream job at Radio 1 with a few panic attacks along the way. It's really funny and quite sad in places throughout the book. The delivery time was a little bit slow this time but it still showed up before its arrival date.

If you're a fan of Scott Mills and his show you will definitely love this book.
