Book Description

As the guitarist in Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Brian Nash conquered the world. The Liverpool band’s first three singles shot to the top of the UK charts and spawned a multi-million selling album in the mid-eighties.

It was a thrilling rock’n’roll ride for ‘Nasher’, a lad from a council house barely out of his teens. But the dream didn’t last. Aged just 27, he found himself near homeless and on the dole. One of ‘The Lads’ no more.

Now, 30 years on from the band’s formation, Nasher takes us back on a colourful journey to Hollywood and beyond.

What price fame? It’s time to tell the real story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book 31 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I know Frankie Goes to Hollywood very well, but had no idea about Brian Nash, or Nasher, other than that he was in the band.

So glad I picked this book up. It's well written and entertaining. From Nasher's childhood to his current life, via being the biggest band in the UK, this is a great read.

There are so many insights into life in a band. The biggest headslap for me was the real reason Frankie didn't do a performance on Bands Reunited. You'd make the same decision they did if you really thought about it.

This book is for all music fans, and for readers who want to spend some time with a decent human being.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some great memories brought back to life! 4 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Yes I was a huge fan of FGTH back in the day, reading this book took me down memory lane to the gigs and back stage doors I hung around at the tender age of 14! Makes me angry to read how ZTT mugged the real musicians off and as a buyer of all the different mixes of albums that most of the band members were oblivious to I feel that I have been mugged of too. This book however was a great read and a real insight to the trials and tribulations of a "pop star".

Loved this book. This was an honest and fascinating account of being in the eye of the storm during the 5 years of Frankie Goes To Hollywood's mega stardom. I loved the band as a teenager and was sad to read they were exploited by ZTT to such an extent. It has all the classic Rock and Roll elements that you would expect: drugs, parties, band bust-ups, legal battles etc.
Nasher comes across as a principled individual. Sad that he had to sign on the dole within 2 years after the band split up. Loved the story about him going to house as an electrician and secretly looking through a guy's record collection. He finds the man's "Welcome to the Pleasuredome" LP and signs it "Hope you like your new lights, Nasher."

5.0 out of 5 stars Maximum Joy 14 April 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An excellent read, this is a well-written, enjoyable, sincere and revealing account not only of the FGTH rollercoaster ride, but also the continuing legacy, and how Brian Nash's musical career continued after the ultimate high of Frankie's short but hugely influential spell as the biggest band in the world. As a fan at the time, the book gives background and references that I can relate to (a couple of gigs I was at, the short lived Low project), but I think you can read this as a non-fan and get just as much out of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Man Says Read It ! 31 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a terrific read for fans of FGTH and music fans in general. It is very well written and extremely funny in places and contains a lot of entertaining anecdotes and insights into both FGTH and the music industry. HJ was clearly rather detached from the group but you do wonder whether they would have had such phenomenal global success and longevity without his snarling, brilliant charisma (and songwriting input to the big hits ?) so I'm off to read HJ's book now to assess his version of events !

5.0 out of 5 stars A really enjoyable read 9 Jan. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved Frankie goes to Hollywood and this book revived some great memories. Also it was good to read what nasher has been up to in the intervening years and fascinating to read how they were royally ripped off by ztt. If you were a Frankie fan or even if your interested how the music industry works I would highly recommend this book.
