    Opis

    'It was a huge adventure and a hell of a ride, with all its comedy, absurdity, exhaustion, madness and sadness... It was a different world. And John has remembered a pretty big chunk of it.' MARK KNOPFLER

    Dire Straits filled giant stadiums around the world and sold hundreds of millions of records. Throughout the eighties they were one of the biggest bands on the planet. Their classic songs - 'Sultans of Swing', 'Romeo and Juliet', 'Money for Nothing', 'Brothers In Arms' - formed the soundtrack of a generation and live on today: still racking up sales, still being played on the radio on every continent.

    In My Life in Dire Straits, John Illsley - founding member, bassist and mainstay - evokes the spirit of the times and tells the story of one of the great live acts of rock history. He recounts the band's rise from humble origins in London's spit-and-sawdust pubs to the best-known venues in the world, the working man's clubs to Madison Square Garden, gigging with wild punk bands to the Live Aid stage at Wembley. Until, ultimately, the shattering demands of touring on a global scale and living life in the spotlight took their inevitable toll.

    Told with searching honesty, soulful reflection and wry humour, this is the first and only account of that incredible story.

    'An uplifting journey through the sheer hard work, pitfalls and thrills of navigating a great rock band to the pinnacle of success. I so enjoyed the ride!' ROGER TAYLOR, Queen

    'Captures the early days of the "English bands" and their story. The ups and downs, relationships, craziness and fun... This really happened!' MIKE RUTHERFORD
