This was an interesting book about Gary Kemp s life prior to the beginnings of Spandau Ballet and beyond I grew up in the 80s so remember a lot of the bands mentioned in this book Depeche Mode Duran Duran Culture Club and of course Spandau Ballet themselves so it was interesting to get an insider s perspective about the bands and the culturelife that surrounded that early musical scene The book itself was well written and very interesting I actually listened to the audiobook which was read by Gary Kemp himself He has a good reading voice unsurprising given his acting work Which leads me to say that it was interesting to hear about his various acting roles including The Krays which is a film I ve watched and enjoyed multiple times This is a book to re visit again in the future
