He and his family needed to make a living while at the same time defending himself from accusations he's received over the years because of hearsay There's obviously many sides of every story and it's good to know hisIt's sort of a trend to vilify music executives and treat them as the worst people on earth whilst ignoring overlooking or underrating the importance they have for the industry itself In a way I guess it makes rock artists popular when they slam labels and managers in fact I wouldn't be surprised if that's often on the advice of said labels and managers as that'll make the artists look 'cooler' and rebellious and then they'll sell and everyone will benefit from that Whether we like it or not when artists sign up with a company recording publishing distributing whatever they become employees and the executives are the investors Without them there's no product no matter how talented the artists are and how much effort they put on writing arranging and performing the songsHaving said that there's one aspect that did disappoint me about the book and is that a lot of the so called facts are just regurgitated from internet or old magazine reports Urban legends such as 'Bo Rhap' having been played fourteen times by Kenny Everett Everett officially claimed in 1976 he'd 'only' done it four times seemed to have been copied and pasted without any sort of verification thus marring the whole point of what 'setting the record straight' should have been

The Original Manager of rock band ueen and founder of legendary Trident Studios London breaks his silence for the first time in an explosive autobiography about how ueen were discovered and what really went on behind the studio doors while recording The Beatles David Bowie Elton John ueen and manyRecording some of the biggest selling songs of all time such as Hey Jude The Beatles Space Oddity David Bowie Candle in the Wind Elton John and many others Trident was at the epicentre of the music industry's biggest names but it was one band in particular that caught the eye of the ex drummer a four piece unknown band called Smile That band under Sheffield's management went on to become one of the biggest selling artists in the world that band was ueen It was a tumultuous relationship filled with twists turns trials and tribulations scandal and rumour and one that ultimately led to an acrimonious split ueen's volatile leader Freddie Mercury famously dedicating the opening track on their Night of the Opera album to Norman Death on Two Legs Funny fascinating and occasionally irreverent and with a foreword by Sir Paul McCartney this is an unmissable memoir that brings to vivid life some of rocks greatest characters With original unseen photography and copies of the original 1972 ueen recording Contracts this book shines a light on a time that could never exist in today's society a place in rock and roll history that in Freddie Mercury's own words was guaranteed to blow your mindThe book also provides access to a exclusive music playlist for your PC or mobile device so you can listen to the music behind the story As a life long ueen fan I've known that Death on Two Legs was written about Norman Scheffield Prior to reading this book I based my opinion of Norman largely on what was said by Freddie and on occasion Roger Well after reading the book I can honestly say that I was mistaken Norman makes his case by presenting his side of the story and copies of the signed contracts between ueen and Trident were also presented I understand Freddie's position; but after hearing both sides of the story I think he was mostly wrong To his credit Norman accepts a lot of responsibility for what happened and this not a ueen bashing book On the contrary the reader is given excellent insight into what was really a magical studio and the good and bad times that occurred His writing style was enjoyable RIP Norman and I thank you for enlightening me
