Product Description
 
Wham! were the band that never underestimated the power of pop, nor the healing powers it possessed.
In 1981, what started out as a boyhood friendship, catapulted two suburban adolescents to worldwide pop domination, becoming icons of their era. While Andrew Ridgeley may have appeared to have stood in George Michael's shadow, he always stood at the heart of the band.

Until now, Andrew has kept private the special memories of life as a pop sensation. In this tender retelling of life as one half of the iconic duo, Andrew reveals the truth behind the triumphs, heartbreaks and of course, the fierce friendship with George that endured it all.Wham! were the band that never underestimated the power of pop, nor the healing powers it possessed.
In 1981, what started out as a boyhood friendship, catapulted two suburban adolescents to worldwide pop domination, becoming icons of their era. While Andrew Ridgeley may have appeared to have stood in George Michael's shadow, he always stood at the heart of the band.

Until now, Andrew has kept private the special memories of life as a pop sensation. In this tender retelling of life as one half of the iconic duo, Andrew reveals the truth behind the triumphs, heartbreaks and of course, the fierce friendship with George that endured it all.
Andrew Ridgeley is one of the most recognisable faces of the eighties. He was one half of the phenomenal pop duo, WHAM!, one of the biggest names in the history of pop music. Born in Surrey, England, he grew up in Bushey, Hertfordshire where he met George Michael whilst attending Bushey Meads School; they struck up an easy friendship - both having a common interest in music - before forming WHAM! The band sold multi-platinum albums and singles globally, having number 1 hits all over the world including both the UK and the US.
Andrew now pursues a variety of interests, significant amongst which is fundraising for The Dallaglio RugbyWorks Charity. He splits his time between his homes in Cornwall and London.
