[[ Free eBook ]] So Here It Is: How the Boy From Wolverhampton Rocked the World With SladeAuthor Dave Hill – Moncler2018.co

The first single i ever bought was Coz I Love You, the first LP was Slade Alive and the first band i saw live was Slade so you can guess where this review is going Absolutely loved this book ,bought back great memories of the early seventies and it s well written Not just your normal biography Highly recommended. To a boy growing up in Wolverhampton in the 1970 s, Slade were everything The fact that they were all so down to earth and grounded, but were without doubt the biggest band in Britain, made you very proud to be from the Black Country Great book, Legend. Love this guy and love Slade A one off character who s enthusiasm id undiminished despite various set backs recently for him health wise I would happily share a beer with him anytime Dave Hill, distinctive in silver costume variations, platform boots and unique hairstyle always stood out in his enthusiasm performing He does the same here telling his version of Slade in his life.Still think Don Powell s is the most truthful though.Buy this book and the others if you re a Slade fan and make up your own mind Goid This is a great book for any fans of Slade and the glam rock era in general It s also a cautionary tale of what can happen to a musician who played on records that sold in the millions but didn t actually write them For many people Dave Hill was the face of Slade and it s a good read for anyone wanting to know what it was like to play in a top band after doing the rounds of pubs and clubs for years before making it big I would have given it 5 stars if Dave had put a few wild rock n roll stories in the book, but he comes across as being too nice a bloke for all that sort of stuff Still a great read though, now where did I put my platform boots Having just finished Pete Way s autobiography which, although entertaining was a tale of self induced spiral into substance abuse and ultimately made me feel sad that talent was wasted pun intended this book is a refreshing tale of someone grateful for his success It s a tale of highs and lows, good and bad luck and someone who s working class upbringing has underpinned all his life Good luck to the bloke, and Don, Jim and Noddy As he says, he still has a love of music, playing live and entertaining people Long may he continue For those of us old enough to remember the heady days of early 1970s glam rockand Slade, the best and most successful band of that era by a country mile..this is a very entertaining and nostalgic read If gives you an insight into what it was like to be the lead guitarist in a highly successful band, to be recognised and adored everywhere, and to enjoy the money that came with that success But it also takes you through the trials and troubles of Dave Hills personal life, and shows that its not all parties and glamour., even at the very top of the music business Well worth reading. If you re a person of a certain age, you probably have a soft spot for Slade that warm and fuzzy feeling you get from remembering watching Top Of The Pops on Thursday nights or any other time they lit up your TV screens with a bit of glitter, shizzle and fun in bleak 1970s Britain.While this isn t your warts n all expose, it covers his ups and downs and does seem to have been written from the heart Dave Hill has always come across as a decent fun loving bloke and the biography is a joy to read, especially when you read about the sheer number of singles and albums Slade were shifting on their early releases I d say it s 95% greatthe afterword does seems to ramble a little, repeating some of the earlier content, but on the whole, I loved it.
