Product description

Review

'Richly detailed biography...draws on extensive interviews' ('Pick of the Paperbacks)

(Daily Telegraph)

‘Mark Blake matches the detail of his Pink Floyd book with a fluid, muscular narration of the band’s rise. Crucially, he interviews the key players (which the other biographies don’t.)’ 8/10

(Classic Rock magazine)

‘Presents the whole, splendid saga…sparkling anecdotes throughout.’

(Mojo)

‘Genuinely adds to the fund of knowledge about this truly unique band.’

(Record Collector)

‘Includes a highly interesting section on their origins…a well-researched account…A good choice for both Queen experts and more lightweight fans.’

(Sunday Business Post)
