A side-splitting good read from this multi-talented musician
on 8 September 2012
A word of caution- only buy this book if you can spare quite a few hours as there's no way you'll be able to put it down until you've completed it!
An hilarious account of Gordy's experiences on the road as additional drummer with top British band The Moody Blues. All of the trials and tribulations are recounted in Gordy's unique and inimitable style, from the tedium of never ending tour buses, private jets and hotel check-ins, to the unexpected encounters with A-list fans and moguls, all whilst busily trying to keep down a steady stream of appopintments with top West End musicals.
For those of us that followed them across parts of the US, UK and Amsterdam tour of 2010, to get the perspective 'from the other side' is a rare treat, and, the flashbacks to other key moments in his career with the band show why he is held in so high regard by the fans.
With a fantastic Foreword by co-skins-thumper and original member of The Moody Blues, Graeme Edge, this book should be high on the list for anyone remotely interested in rock-n'roll. On a score of 1 to 10, this one goes up to 11.
