Publisher's Summary

A Telegraph Book of the Year 

As a renowned recording-studio maven, Trevor Horn has been dubbed 'the man who invented the '80s'.

His production work since the glory days of ZTT represents a veritable 'who's who' of intelligent modern pop, including the likes of ABC, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Paul McCartney, Rod Stewart, Pet Shop Boys, Seal, Simple Minds, Grace Jones and Yes - among many others.

This book is Trevor's story in his own words, as told through the prism of twenty-three of his most important songs - from the ones that inspired him to the ones that defined him.

This play-by-play memoir transports listeners into the heart of the studio to witness the making of some of music's most memorable moments, from the Buggles' ground-breaking 'Video Killed the Radio Star' to Band Aid's perennial 'Do They Know It's Christmas?', via hits such as 'Relax', 'Poison Arrow', 'Owner of a Lonely Heart' and 'Crazy'.

Offering unrivalled access to the dark arts of the producer's world and the even darker arts of the music business itself, prepare for some adventures in modern recording...

Inside the studio where hits were made

An excellent inside story on some of the biggest hits of the 80s, 90s and 00s. Trevor reveals how he created the sound that won over our ears, and he also tells some cracking stories about big names in music. As well, we find out where it all began for him. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
