A humorous, poignant, and unflinching look at the cost of celebrity, Andy Summers's autobiography discusses his occasionally turbulent upbringing in the seaside town of Bournemouth and his early affinity for the guitar, as well as the fame and privilege awarded him as a member of the seminal 1980s rock band the Police. The usual trappings of rock-and-roll superstardom are portrayed--in fascinating anecdotes, Summers describes socializing with Eric Clapton, playing with Jimi Hendrix, and getting high with John Belushi--but never romanticized; Summers is more concerned with presenting a candid portrayal of the highs and lows of fame rather than reliving or justifying past excesses. Undeniably a must-read for fans of the Police, this book will also appeal to anyone interested in the history and background of rock and roll and the music industry. "Un vistazo humoristico, conmovedor y honesto del precio de la fama, la autobiografia de Andy Summers discute su ninez de vez en cuando turbulenta en el pueblo costero de Bournemouth y su afinidad temprana por la guitarra, asi como la fama y el privilegio que se gano como miembro del renombrado grupo de rock de los 80 Police. Se describe el boato habitual del estrellato--en chispeantes anecdotas, Summers cuenta sus experiencias andando con Eric Clapton, tocando con Jimi Hendrix y endrogandose con John Belushi--pero nunca se idealiza; Summers se ocupa mas de presentar francamente los altibajos de la fama en vez de justificar los excesos de su pasado. Sin duda imprescindible para fanaticos de Police, este libro tambien atraera a cualquiera interesado en la historia del rock y los antecedentes de la industria musical."
