Later printing. Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “Gary Barlow, Take That’s front man, was the voice and talent behind many of their eight No. 1 hits. His songs, including ‘Back for Good’, ‘Pray’ and ‘A Million Love Songs’, were the sound of the early nineties. Tipped as the next Elton John, a glittering solo career was predicted. So how come, less than two years later, he had been dropped by his label, written off as a has-been and consigned to pop oblivion? This is Gary’s engaging story of his ride on the rollercoaster of fame – his apprenticeship in the working men’s clubs of the north of England, his unstoppable ambition, the life-changing moment when he met Nigel Martin-Smith, the Manchester modelling agent who wanted to put together a boy band, the high-jinks and pressures of band life, the three lads who became and are his best friends, and how the dream crumbled, just as Robbie Williams became a megastar and made Gary the butt of his jokes.”
