I Wish I Was Me: Pete Waterman - The Autobiography Pete Waterman
Pete Waterman is pop. Both alone and as part of Stock, Aitken and Waterman, he produced over 200 hits in the course of 25 years. Today he is producing hits for bands such as Steps and Westlife. Now for the first time, he tells his remarkable story in his own words. Pete grew up in a poor, working-class environment, and didn't learn to read and write until he was in his forties. But he became one third of a great hit-making partnership, making stars out of Bananarama, Kylie Minogue, Rick Astley, Jason Donovan and many others. In this memoir, Pete explains why "The Hit Factory" split, and how he fought his way to a major comeback in 1999. It includes never-before-published stories about many of the 80s' biggest stars - and some more recent big names, too.
