    This is a brilliant book, it arrived today and I have read it in one sitting Couldn t put it down Stunning photographs, heartfelt, Well written and as a Wham fan, I couldn t wait to read it.I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know about Andrew Ridgeley and loved a look back to the Wham days, which were an important part of my own teenage years.Ultimately the book is about love, friendship and what a brilliant time these 2 boys had, a career that started and continued on friendship As close a friendship as you can get Beautiful Thanks Andrew and we miss you, George These really were the best of times

    I am grateful that Andrew decided to write this book, and was very interested in his story He is not pretending to speak for George, just telling the story of his childhood friendship and Wham I am the same age as he is so all the musical background is totally familiar I was in the audience at Wham The Final too, so it is really interesting to know how it came about.Importantly, I feel that this is a truthful book It was always suggested that Andrew had no involvement in writing Careless Whisper, so it is very interesting to read the much nuanced explanation here of how he was involved..The appearance by Andrew, Shirlie and Pepsi at the Brits to pay tribute to their friend after his shocking death was one of the event s best ever moments It was a demonstration of uncomplicated love And it was so clearly genuine that I cried George was a pop genius but also loved by his friends of many years I was pleased to read Andrew s take on that appearance.Unsurprisingly the book focuses on Andrew s experiences But everyone who loves Wham or George s music should find it interesting.

    An enjoyable read, refreshingly free of the cod psychology we get from so many celebs It s a simple story he wanted to be in band, and set about making it happen For a few years he was then part of something huge, before Wham died a natural death and he retired to enjoy his millions He is clearly not wallowing in self pity about having to live in George Michael s shadow Good luck to him.

    Books OkTo much Andrew not enough YOG Inevitable I suppose. Then to top it off like Kenny before him revealing details of private moments during his families tragedy when it was clearly not what they wanted Team YOG

    I was looking forward to this book but what i found between the covers was sadly lacking in any depth or real feeling I ve no doubt Andrew Ridgley gave a very comprehensive account to his writing team but what was produced came across as being very repetitive and of a very basic standard of writing It was almost like reading a 15 year old s account of their weekend as a piece of homework, you could imagine red pen in the margins with question marks and expand comments Andrew seems like a very nice guy but the reader isn t drawn into the book, i can usually read something like this in an evening but i found it hard work and even boring at times, thanks to the poor descriptive narrative It could have been a gripping piece but, as with the poor interpretation of Careless Whisper for the boys in the studio, this has been approached in the wrong way with the wrong production team.

    Arrived on 3rd Oct, finished reading by the 4th Unputdownable Witty, honest, moving I laughed, I cried.Whilst remaining respectful to George, it was necessary and long overdue to put the record straight once and for all Andrew instigated what eventually became Wham And co wrote and co sang initially a fact that was not unknown but largely ignored That said, his love for his old mate, Yog, is evident throughout Their friendship the focus of this book How two boys dared to dream, one encouraging the other to make it a reality The rest as they say, is history.It goes without saying that it s compulsive reading for all Wham Bammers out there But also for those interested in the 80s music scene in general.
