Poignant, Painful, Beautiful, Necessary.
Reviewed in the United States on October 8, 2019
Pre-Ordered the Audible so I could start it before the bookstore opened, sorry Amazon but couldn't wait a day for a hardcover to get to me. Woke up at 2:58 am out of the blue and at 3:01 an email came that the book was available in my app. Now I know why God woke me up. Had a crazy busy day with endless meetings but listened to it all (on top of going to the bookstore to get the hardcover - the pictures and memorabilia are insane.)
This book was sooooo needed, it's not only about Andrew and George but a necessary snapshot of the industry and the 80's as it was.
It's painful and poignant and beautiful. Andrew Ridgeley should be commended for adding this to history - may it serve to illuminate the contributions he made, George made, and Wham made to the music industry and world as we know it.
Wham! was a brief shining moment - an escape - and with the world the way it is escape is needed now more than ever. Thanks to this book and their music, the sunlight they brought to the world is never far away.
