About the Author

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
He doesn't seem to have included any interviews conducted by himself with people that knew George, so I can only assume he didn't do any at all, which to me seems a rather strange way to approach writing a book about someone that you have never met!
Finally the writing is sloppy, sentences are badly constructed, all too often some words are missing all together such that what is written doesn't actually make sense, and finally the author clearly has some "favourite" words which he uses again and again and again which I found intensely annoying, there was also an unnecessary amount of colloquialisms and slang words used which again I found irritating.
All in all not a "bad" book as far as it goes, but I was left wanting to know more about George the writer, the firm religious believer, the father, the musician, basically more of George the man; I know George was a hugely private person, but surely if the right people were asked the right questions (including Olivia, Dhani, Paul, Ringo, Jeff Lynne etc) we could get a book that would actually show the man behind the guitar!
I am still waiting for that book!
This book is recommended until hopefully, one day, someone who actually knew the great man personally can tell us some more about what made him tick.
