Eric Stewart’s long-awaited autobiography explores an interactive musical history: from his musical beginnings, to the early years of the Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders, to the Mindbenders, to the days of 10cc, Eric reflects on it all, and most importantly, why he does the things he does: For Love.
Enjoyable read but just a tad too materialistic
Firstly, let me say how much I admire Eric Stewart. I love his music & he’s most certainly a musical genius. I was late to 10cc and grew up in the 80s.
I enjoyed reading this book but found it sometimes a wee bit materialistic- the cars, the houses and the model wife (who is beautiful).
I wish he’d stuck more to his roots and explored his family more and a tiny thing bothered me - he referred to himself as half ‘Scotch’ and being a Scot myself a Scotch is an egg or whisky!
It’s worth a read though and he’s had a wonderful experience with his life, that some of us can only dream about!
Eric Stewart the heartbeat of 10cc
A brilliant insight into this greatly underestimated musician, vocalist and producer/engineer.
Great read for fans of 10cc and the art of recording great music in the 70’s. The music business and a celebration of a great band. Strawberry Studios and lots of great stories. Top biography, and well written. Eric Stewart doesn’t disappoint.
