Descrição da editora
New! Updated and revised edition of Nina Antonia's cult classic rock biography of The Only Ones' front man Peter Perrett.
With a new introduction by John Cooper-Clarke
This edition has a lengthy additional chapter which brings it bang up to date (June 2015) and also includes an exclusive interview with Peter Perrett in 2015 in which he talks about deeply personal matters such as death and his love for his wife, Zena. The lyrics for a new song penned for Zena are also included as additional material.
Nina Antonia's biography is a roller-coaster ride through one of rock’s wildest, most unpredictable careers. Granted exclusive access to Perrett himself and everyone who matters in this extraordinary story, Antonia unflinchingly traces his path from privileged childhood to heavy duty drug dealer; from obscurity to decadent, promiscuous, heroin-addicted rock icon; from antique-filled mansion to mouldering south London basement... Yet here, too, is the remarkable love story of Perrett's 40-year marriage to ‘soul mate’ Zena, which survived all the highs and lows and led him, eventually, to redemption and creative rebirth.
‘Enthralling reading,’ J. Hunter Bennett, Hitlist

‘Nina writes, seen her riot.’ Peter Doherty (Libertines)
‘The Only Ones were ‘my’ band... I went everywhere to see them.’ Johnny Marr (The Smiths)
