5.0 out of 5 stars Robin Hood, he's retired now, 16 Nov 2013
This review is from: Ian Dury: The Definitive Biography (Paperback)
HIT ME! This is a great great rock biog and explains the difference between the lovable Ian and the terrifying Tom superbly. I met Ian on several occasions during 1984-1986 as I knew his managers (Jenny) Cotton and Carruthers (Andrew King) and Birch's book is absolutely spot-on recreating (A) the mood and flavour of that time (B) Ian's strangely attractive insanity (C) the entire suporting cast of figures such as 'Strangler'. I laughed out loud every minute ( it triggered off other memories such as when I broke out in uncontrollable tears of astonishment watching Ian at Hammersmith Odeon when he began singing "Bernard Cribbins for 'er hair"). I went back to the albums to remind myself what a fantastic thing ID and the BH was. If you loved New Boots and Panties you will really enjoy reading this fascinating biog. Oi Oi!
