Review: “Never A Dull Moment”

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!
