Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Big Life (Kindle Edition)
I foolishly bought this book thinking it might contain a reference to Mark Andrews and the Gents, a band I liked that Jazz Summers managed. It doesn’t, but it did remind me of Summers’ famous red nose, which I was transfixed by when trying unsuccessfully to get him to pay my band for a gig they did for him in the Old Kent Road in the late seventies. A further ten pages about how he struggled to contain his skin disease does not make interesting reading. In fact, none of the book does. It reads throughout as if it has been dictated and then transcribed by the office intern. Considering it’s a book about rock and pop music, the schoolchild errors and horrific typos are plain embarrassing. A few random examples: Jimmy Hendrix, Long John Bawdrey, John Martin (I’m not kidding). The nearest it comes to a revelation or an even vaguely interesting story is the one about Richard Digance having his penis fondled in the Bottom Line in New York. I want my money back.
