9780957513303: Life on Two Legs

Norman Sheffield, founder of Trident Studios, London and original Manager of Queen, breaks his silence for the first time in forty years in an autobiography about what really went on behind closed doors.

Funny, fascinating and occasionally irreverent - and with a foreword by Sir Paul McCartney -this is an unmissable memoir that brings to vivid life some of rocks greatest characters. 

Recording some of the greatest artists of the time such as The Beatles, David Bowie, Genesis and Elton John,, Trident was at the epicentre of the music industry's biggest names but it was one band in particular that caught the eye of the ex-drummer - a four piece unknown band called Smile. That band, under Sheffield's management, went on to become one of the biggest selling artists in the world - that band was Queen. 

It was a tumultuous relationship filled with twists, turns, trials and tribulations, scandal and rumour and one that ultimately led to an acrimonious split. Queen's volatile leader Freddie Mercury famously dedicating the opening track on their Night of the Opera album to Norman: Death on Two Legs. 

In Life on Two Legs, Sheffield reveals the journey of building the studios from its humble beginnings of a dark, decrepit Soho engraving works, into a legendary recording facility producing many of the biggest hit records in the world and the book offers a heart rendering personal account and factual insight into the highs, lows, controversy and splendour of that vintage rock 'n' roll era. 

With original unseen photography and copies of the original 1972 Queen Contracts- this book shines a light on a time that could never exist in today's society, a place in rock and roll history that - in Freddie Mercury 's own words - was guaranteed to blow your mind.

Descripción Trident Publishing Ltd, United Kingdom, 2013. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Life on Two Legs In March, 1968, Norman Sheffield opened a ground-breaking, new recording facility in London s Soho. For the next 15 years, Trident Studios, was at the epicentre of the music industry, recording some of the era s greatest artists, from The Beatles and David Bowie to Elton John and Genesis. Trident also developed their own talent, including a raw and demanding four-piece band called Queen. After an acrimonious split with Trident, their volatile leader Freddie Mercury famously dedicated a song to Norman: Death On Two Legs. In Life On Two Legs, this legendary music figure breaks his forty year silence and sets the record straight, not just about Freddie and Queen but also about artists from John Lennon and Marc Bolan to Harry Nilsson and Phil Collins and the recording of such classics as Hey Jude by The Beatles and Space Oddity by David Bowie. Funny, fascinating and occasionally irreverent - and with a foreword by Sir Paul McCartney - this is an unmissable memoir that brings to vivid life some of rock s greatest characters as well as the era and the studio that produced some of its classic music.
