5.0 out of 5 stars legend in his own right, 10 Nov 2013
This review is from: Creation Stories: Riots, Raves and Running a Label (Hardcover)
Witty, factual, entertaining and yet very down to earth. He narrates really well and makes the reader feel with him what he is going through, his adventures, his business and his private life. It is very hard to read in parts and at the beginning of the book I wanted to scoop the young Alan out and just protect him. School was not his forte as a child Alan thought all teachers were wankers, and his families ambition for him was to be a cab driver.

From a young age Alan showed great entrepreneurial skills, he was the kid at the age of 14 filling donuts with jam in Glasgow, and soon discovered the thrill of making extra money on a paper round, when he would turn up an hour earlier than everyone else and sell them all. With his extra money Alan started going to gigs and soon fell in love with live music.

You will find yourself burning with enthusiasm after reading this and racking your brain to think of some venture into which you can fling your energy. That is the great attraction of this book.

If the name Alan Mcgee stands for anything it should stand for innovation. He's the music industry's dream maker and the man who gives people something to look forward to. He's made people with talent believe in him, because he believes in them. He gives off an image of love and that's a nice way to be. He's not even one in a million, he is the only one.
