Just like with the first book, I was laughing out loud and couldn't help reading out passages that particularly tickled me to my dad, who practically fell over laughing too
Rick spins a good yarn and I was completely engrossed in tales of a charity gig where everyone attending was given a bowl of cabbage curry (yes, really) which was swiftly followed by the rather dubious honour of being given a poem by a poet who never writes down his poetry (once again, yes. really), the absolute sorrow where he describes losing his father and giggled over his dilemma of telling his mother about the infamous 'Frankenstein/Thor' scene in Lizstomania. I could go on, but you need to read it all for yourself
In short, I laughed, I was saddened, I laughed again, I wiped a hand down my face in shared frustration, but mostly I laughed
Here's hoping he feels he's got a third book in him!
As a general rule, anything here with a famous name involved will say how wonderful they are and how much they do for charity and anything involving less well-know people will tend to involve filth and (as per the first book) flatulence. Obviously it's the second type of story that tend to be hilarious and entertaining, while the celeb stuff starts to grate after a while.
Still an entertaining and funny book, just not quite reaching the sustained comic heights of the original.
However, that apart, it's still a very good (if light) read. If you like Wakeman, and you enjoy listening to his stories on stage you will love this. If you liked the first book, you will love this. However, it's NOT a biography, and to be fair it doesn't attempt to be.
Bottom line - fun, enjoyable, untaxing read about a great rock musician.
If you have seen his one man shows, you know he writes exactly as he if he on stage talking you.
This 2nd book is just as good as his first. Can't wait to read his next book
Loved the very interesting (& often hilarious) anecdotes.
Considering it was recommended to me by the great man himself, I wasn't disappointed.
If I could give it 6 stars, I would.
