Hi everyone - been so long since I checked in! Best wishes to all board dwellers :)

Just to follow up on this post - please don't sell your granny or remortgage your house to get a second hand copy of the book, I am working on transferring it to ebook format but it's taking me longer than I'd hoped.

Oh wow Macey that's great news! I've had a lot of PMs over the years asking about it being available digitally.

Will there be anything else added?

Hi Tony

No, it's not going to be another edition in that sense, just a tidied-up e-version. I am going to include the liner notes for BBC In Session and a piece that I wrote for the Guardian.

I just didn't have the time to go round trying to convince new interviewees to talk. Maybe if something major happens in the future I'll look at that again.

Just to say the ebook version is finally (FINALLY!) out now. On Amzon, Kobo, Apple Books etc.
Sorry it took so long :shock:

Best to everyone

Macey :D

I ordered a copy for about 80€. Im not a big ebook guy and this book is worth the money to keep me busy during these lockdowns. Cant wait to read it. I was lucky to find a copy

It's a new copy from amazon, it seemed legit from the publisher. It was the last copy on that page

Oh that's cool :)

I just hate the prices this book has gone for. It's been exploitative at times!

No matter. Good to see Macey's got a digital version. I like the artwork!

Nice book, read it in a day. I would love to be in Lee's house listening to his new songs. Found it interesting the way Lee loves the internet.
That epilogue though, left me wondering about what goes around in Lee's head...
