THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER FROM ONE HALF OF ONE OF THE WORLD’S MOST FAMOUS BANDS
For the first time, Andrew Ridgeley 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.
‘I couldn’t put it down. Such a fantastic book’ Chris Evans, Virgin Radio
School mates. Band mates. Soul mates . . .
When Andrew Ridgley took George Michael, the new boy at school, under his wing, he discovered a soul mate.
In Wham! George and Me, Andrew tells the story of how they rode a rollercoaster of success around the world while making iconic records and surviving superstardom with their friendship intact. It is a memoir of love, music, the flamboyant 1980s and living in a pop hurricane.
No one else can ever tell their story – because no one else was there.
