|I'm here thinking why his life in the 90s and 00s wasn't much discussed on the book,was it because are lots of articles out there about it?|
I guess because the book needed to have some sort of focus. They probably decided early on that it was more economical and practical not to have an autobiography that was 500 or more pages covering every part of Mike's career. I guess also from the publishers point of view the 70's era Mike Oldfield stuff is possibly of interest beyond the die hard fan base since Branson was a bigger part of Mike's career in that era, possibly anyway.
Yep,that's true.I can't wait to read about Mike's early days,to understand more him as a person,there was a gap for me regarding this type of stuff until now with the book.
Now a question for the ones who had the chance to read the book - do you recommend the book for a friend who needs help to face life,to get off from the edge of society,like Mike felt?
