Mike Oldfield - A Life Dedicated to Music by Chris Dewey
Having been a fan of Mike Oldfield's unique brand of music for all of 40 years now I thought I'd read everything there was to know about Oldfield's remarkable career. That was probably the case until I read Chris Dewey's excellent book. If you've already read Oldfield's autobiography 'Changeling ' and like me it left you feeling a little depressed then this book is a good antidote . With insightful interviews and anecdotes from school friends, family members and musical collaborators it reveals a much happier and less isolated life of a true musical genius . Essential reading for any fan of the maestro .
