2.0 out of 5 stars not the biog that Wilson deserved, 1 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tony Wilson - You're Entitled to an Opinion (Hardcover)
Almost everything Tony said was interesting, yet this book takes its name from a boorish put-down. The prose is pedestrian. The front cover layout is horrible, as you can see here (the back cover photo almost makes up for it though). The author worked with Wilson at Granada so is much stronger on the TV than the music, which is a bit like if the New Testament dwelt on the carpentry. Another review mentioned the typos - Shaun Ryder's name is misspelt at one point. So this is not the biography Tony Wilson deserved but happily the film and the book Tony deserved (24 Hour Party People - Single Disc Edition [2002] [DVD] and 24 Hour Party People) were already in existence before he died.
