Opis

I was six or seven when I noticed the music in my head. It was there in the classroom, on the football pitch, at the dinner table, when I went to sleep and when I woke up. And it's continued ever since. "Adventures Of A Waterboy" is a fascinating, evocative memoir by one of the great British songwriters of the past four decades. It is an honest and revealing work, by turns heartfelt and funny, that tells the story of a cocky Scot with a sound in his head and his lifelong efforts to reproduce that sound - a story that runs from teenage fandom to international stardom, from Scotland to New York City and beyond. As a teenager in Scotland, Mike played in punk and garage bands, hitchhiked to see Bob Dylan, and scammed his way into punk poet Patti Smith's inner circle during an eye-opening weekend in London. In 1983 he formed "The Waterboys" with an ever-rotating cast of collaborators and soon found international success with the trademark big music sound of songs like "Don't Bang The Drum" and "The Whole Of The Moon". Three years later, Scott travelled to Ireland to spend a week with fiddler Steve Wickham and ended up staying for six years. During that time he developed a deep interest in roots and folk music, resulting in "The Waterboys'" best-selling album, "Fisherman's Blues". After scaling the heights of success and moving the band to New York, he followed another fascination and went to live in the Findhorn spiritual community in Northern Scotland. Mike Scott continues to push musical boundaries and still tours regularly with new and reconfigured versions of his legendary band. In 2010 "The Waterboys" premiered their new work, "An Appointment With Mr Yeats", at the Abbey Theatre in Dublin. The album of the same name was released to great acclaim in 2011.
