Remarkable life, remarkable man.,
This review is from: Big Life (Kindle Edition)
This book was interesting on so many levels. It gave me an insight into an industry about which I knew very little. Because the book was dictated by Jazz Summers, it isn't full of literary affectations and instead has a much more immediate, intimate quality. (Although, I confess, it took a few pages to get into the style, by the end I really felt I knew and understood more about the man.) Also, I enjoyed learning more about the artists Jazz has managed, because I've listened to so much of the music. I was a big Wham! fan, so that was a particularly interesting section.
Even before Jazz Summers got into the big time, with Big Life, he had a fascinating and remarkable life. He clearly was destined to do something big. I remember reading Bob Geldof's autobiography, Is That It? and thinking, no wonder he followed the path he took - his life was extraordinary from the off. And I'd say the same about Jazz Summers' life - extraordinary.
But this book isn't only full of startling stories of the machinations in the music industry, it offers the author's insights on life, and the importance of cleaning up your own act, eating well, treating people kindly and harnessing the power of the Universe.
I found this a fascinating and inspiring read.
