"1971: Never A Dull Moment" published in the USA.

Here's the cover of the American edition of 1971: Never A Dull Moment, which comes out in the U.S. next week.

I'm delighted to say it's been chosen as one of's best books for June.

Pass it on.


  1. Hello! I'm a Brit living in Los Angeles and, having waited eagerly for the u.s. release of your book, have just started listening to the audiobook version, and am very happy so far! I'm curious to know - how different is it from the United Kingdom version? Thanks, Nick

  2. Frankly< I've lost track. The American version starts differently. Not in London, if you see what I mean. Apart from that there are a few words here and there changed for the sake of better understanding. But they're substantially the same book.

  3. Just finished it -- got through it in two big gulps. Smashing. I do believe (if this hasn't already been brought to your attention) that Paul McCartney gave "Come And Get It" to Badfinger, not "No Matter What" as stated.

    I was gratified to see that you acknowledged "Tarkus" by Emerson, Lake & Palmer three pages from the end. In the year when we lost Keith Emerson, it's nice to see his indisputable genius recognized in a broader context than the usual prog boffins.

    Great read.
