Product Details

Praise

“One half of one of the world’s most famous bands tells his (fascinating) side of the story, offering readers intimate access into how his friendship with George Michael developed, and taking them behind the scenes of Wham’s beginnings, heights, and lows.”
Entertainment Weekly

“A tender, admiring tribute to [George] Michael, whom Ridgeley repeatedly calls his best friend” 
—The Washington Post

“A memoir of a friendship as much as it is a look back on pop stardom, Ridgeley’s first book is an enjoyable callback to a different, yet thanks to its preservation on videotape still instantly memorable, musical era… While the book is focused on Michael, it isn’t an explosive tell-all — but that makes it a more enjoyable read. Ridgeley’s motivations for writing the book seem as rooted in telling his side of the Wham! story as they are in reminding readers of Michael’s songwriting genius, often overlooked by pop-averse critics and taken for granted by listeners who gorged on the hooky riches of the ’80s. Written in sepia hues that allow Wham!’s floodlight-illuminated musical triumphs to glow even more brightly, it’s a loving tribute to a friend and a more innocent pop era.”
