The book is written loosely in the form of a diary. Starting in October 2007 the chapters combine his childhood to adult journey with latter day experiences of success mixed with his recent traumatic health challenges. Two eight page sections of colour photos give a lovely insight into the success story, and the final entry in the diary is February 2008, providing a year of writing but a lifetime of experiences.
The story of his performance of Nessun Dorma, at Old Trafford for Manchester United's final game of the 1999 season, is unforgetable. So too is the account of his meeting with Pavarotti, one of his great idols.
Well written, in Russell's easy style of talking, and compulsive reading for his fans. It's also a chance for his critics to judge him better and maybe offer a more thoughtful opinion.
The 'voice' has spoken!
Russell's autobiography includes every emotion I can possibly think of (!), and good on him for sticking two fingers up at the "snobs who are classically trained at one of the top musical establishments", who have never accepted him.
If there is one autobiography that you EVER buy, make it this one.
His descriptions of the antics he got up to as a child and young teen will have you in stitches and I defie you not to well up when he talks of his illness.
I've read many biographies and some come over as me,me,me, look at how great I am, but not this one.
Well done Russell, look forward to the next installment in a few years time.
PS Got my copy signed last Friday!!! Thanks Russ
Once started I could not put it down ~(being a huge Russell Watson fan does help)but it really is a brilliant read.It covers all the highs and lows of his life from childhood to present day.It has you laughing and crying all the way through.How he battled though money problems,bad managment,bad press,divorce and serious illness is just beyond belief and he still carried on.His daughters are his inspiration the love he has for them is unconditional and really comes through the way he writes. A must for all Russell Watson Fans.
