Spandau ballet to cut a long story
To Cut A Long Story Short by Tony HadleyI really enjoyed this, the second time Ive read it(the first time was five or six years ago). I think likely because Ive found a new appreciation for Spandau Ballets music this year. Tony Hadley had it made as the lead singer of one of the premier New Romantic bands in the eighties. However, it wasnt as easy as it seemed, by the gloss and opulence that defined the era. He speaks frankly of a good childhood up to Spandau and beyond. Spandau Ballet, as much as it was days of wine and roses, turned into more of a War of the Roses with Gary Kemp of the band, dividing the band and members(to this day, that continues). This is the story of how that happened and why Hadley took his bandmate to court. Peppered throughout are great stories of excess, not only the band and Hadley, but also other well known pop stars in the 80s. You see Hadley battle through the disintegration of the band, his solo career and attempts to revive Spandau, his trying to recoup financial ruin, battling to save his marriage, losing his father and falling to pieces, his alcoholism, and his attempts to continue doing the thing he loves most- singing- amidst all this thing called life. Hes very forthright, funny, and philosophical about the highs and lows hes had in his public and personal life. By far, it gave me a whole new appreciation for him beyond someone Id also thought of as a great singer.
