Bill Nelson's professional and private life is well documented here, from picking up a guitar for the first time at the age of around ten, through the musical experiences of his youth, to the creation of Be Bop Deluxe, and beyond.
The disbanding of both versions of BBD and the reaction of the band members is covered. Theories are put forward in an attempt to unravel one of the great mysteries of rock music: Why didn't BBD and Bill Nelson become household names? The book predominantly details the BBD years, but Nelson's subsequent solo career is also covered.
The book is interspersed with comments and reflections from Nelson and former band members, as well as friends and producers from the music industry.
All five BBD studio albums, plus a selection of later works, feature a track by track breakdown, explaining the reasons and influences for the lyrics, which makes for very interesting reading.
For fans of BBD and Bill Nelson, this book provides a fascinating insight into the man, his thoughts, and the influences that inspired his creativity, and is certainly a very worthwhile read.
