To Cut a Long Story Short: My Autobiography by Tony Hadley
In this autobiography Tony Hadley, lead singer of 80s band Spandau Ballet and winner of the ITV1 series Reborn in the USA will reveal the highs and lows of his twenty year career in music. At the height of New Romantic fever classic songs such as 'True', 'Through the Barricades' and 'Gold' earned Tony Hadley, with his good looks and stage presence, a legion of teenage fans around the world. With his unique vocals, Tony appeared to have it all - on the surface at least - and then he lost it.
After ten years together Spandau Ballet split. Along with former bandmates John Keeble and Steve Normal Tony faced a legal battle against Gary Kemp over royalties - and lost. Professionally his life was in disarray. Personally he was beset by tragedy. His father died. His newborn son was ill. Yet Tony has emerged intact. Tony's fanbase has remained loyal to him through the years as evidenced by his popularity on Reborn in the USA, which he won with over 80% of the final vote. His autobiography will be a great slice of 80s nostalgia.
