The colors for the cover of the book caught my eye.
I admit it. The title looked interesting as well.
Why is this book called “Never A Dull Moment” besides the, uh, loosely clothed people on the cover?
With the news that George Michael died today, I’m glad I had the chance to read this book before his death. These were the people who helped inspire to bring his act into existence.
I also envy the author David Hepworth for having the opportunity to grow up with real Mom and Pop music stores. I never had that opportunity as will most of us reading this. They were in the process of going down hill while I was growing up but they were too commercialized. The one music store I remember frequenting is now a Yankee Candle store.
This is an easy read. Mr. Hepworth sets up the book nicely and it flows well. If you like history, this is a book for you. This is also a great book for reluctant readers. The topic is fascinating and the people he talks about are fascinating as well. This fills in some “gaps” a lot of people may not be aware of in the history of recent music.
Kudos to Mr. Hepworth to writing this. Thank you!
