9780752847207: Blitzed!: The Autobiography of Steve Strange
Críticas:

Steve Strange was head boy of the new romantic movement. He ran the best clubs in London and defined the glitzy banality of the era. With Midge Ure, he formed Visage which became one of the biggest bands of the time selling millions of records and gaining tabloid notoriety. Blitzed! recounts the rise and fall of the Blitz Kid himself from the excess of the early Eighties: the clubs, the people, the music, the money, to his time spent recovering in Ibiza and India; the subsequent steady decline into cocaine and heroin abuse and his rise back to sanity. He unflinchingly tells how he pulled himself back from the brink. Strange now manages a band, is clean, is re-recording Visage tracks and is ready to tell his amazing story.

Reseña del editor:

Steve Strange was head boy of the New Romantic movement. He ran the best clubs in London - Billy's, Blitz and Camden Palace - which defined the glitzy banality of the era; places where Spandau Ballet and Boy George came to life. He was the glamourpuss of glamourpusses, the campest boy in town. He formed, with Midge Ure, Visage that became one of the biggest bands of the time selling millions of records and gaining tabloid notoriety. BLITZED! recounts the rise and fall of the Blitz Kid himself and recounts from the epicentre the excess of the early eighties: the clubs, the people, the music, the money, his time spent recovering in Ibiza and India, the subsequent steady decline into cocaine and heroin abuse and his rise back to sanity. Steve recounts how he lost all his possessions in a house fire and days later learned of the death of his close friend Michael Hutchence. Within a couple of years Paula Yates had also committed suicide and Strange had ended up back in South Wales, homeless, mentally unstable and facing a court order for shoplifting. He recounts how he pulled himself back from the brink. He now manages a band, is clean, is re-recording Visage tracks and is ready to tell his amazing story.
