It is quite some time since I have read a book on Slade so this was a good if a little odd read. It was not really by Don and it was not written as if it was by Don. Lise use Don’s diaries (which he has kept since his car crash caused a short term memory dysfunction) and interviews with other artists. At times it was a little tedious read how nice Don is all the time but overall it was quite informative gave me a perspective I would otherwise be unaware off.

Don clearly is a nice guy as the book doesn’t knock anyone but it also doesn’t really give too much insight into the other members of Slade. From memory I preferred Noddy’s book but it seems I didn’t write a review for that so I can’t be sure.
