Wham! George & Me [9780241385807]

(1 review) Write a Review

For the first time, Andrew Ridgeley - one half of one of the most famous bands in the world - tells the inside story of Wham!, his life-long friendship with George Michael and the formation of a band that changed the shape of the music scene in the early eighties.

In 1975 Andrew took a shy new boy at school under his wing. They instantly hit it off and their boyhood escapades at Bushey Meads School built a bond that was never broken.

The duo found themselves riding an astonishing rollercoaster of success, taking them all over the world.

They made and broke iconic records, they were treated like gods, but they stayed true to their friendship and ultimately to themselves.

It was a party that seemed as if it would never end. And then it did, in front of tens of thousands of tearful fans at Wembley Stadium in 1986.

Andrew's memoir covers in wonderful detail those years, up until that last iconic concert: the scrapes, the laughs, the relationships, the good and the bad.

It's a unique and one-and-only time to remember that era, that band and those boys.


AUTHOR: Andrew Ridgeley is one of the most recognisable faces of the eighties. He was one half of the phenomenal pop duo, WHAM!, one of the biggest names in the history of pop music. Born in Surrey, England, he grew up in Bushey, Hertfordshire where he met George Michael whilst attending Bushey Meads School; they struck up an easy friendship - both having a common interest in music - before forming WHAM! The band sold multi-platinum albums and singles globally, having number 1 hits all over the world including both the UK and the US. 

Andrew now pursues a variety of interests, significant amongst which is fundraising for The Dallaglio RugbyWorks Charity. He splits his time between his homes in Cornwall and London.
