One Hit Wonderland
by Tony Hawks
Over eighteen months, the author battles against all the odds to have a hit. He changes act and styles with a bewildering lack of integrity. He travels to Nashville, the song writing capital of the universe. Amidst all the uncertainty only one thing is clear. If anyone is optimistic and determined enough to pull this off, it is himself.
Fast forward to the 21st century and Tony has left these heady music biz days behind. That cherished appearance on 'Top of the Pops' is but a distant memory. These days music is just a hobby. That is until it is suggested that Tony is a One Hit Wonder. That he would never have been a hit again. Ever. Really? Well, we'll see about that...Over eighteen months, Tony battles against all the odds to have a hit, somewhere anywhere in the world. He changes act and styles with a bewildering lack of integrity. He travels to Nashville, the song writing capital of the universe. To, Amsterdam for that elusive novelty Euro anthem. He beats the grubby streets of London in search of a million dollar deal, and journeys to a remote African village to discover the ultimate melody. Amidst all the uncertainty only one thing is clear. If anyone is optimistic and determined enough to pull this off, it is Tony Hawks. In "One Hit to Hollywood", anything is possible...
Why buy from World of Books
Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
The author of the international bestsellers Round Ireland With a Fridge and Playing the Moldovans at Tennis scores again with his attempt to repeat his 1988 pop music success. This new adventure takes him around the world in a search for an elusive follow-up hit from the Nashville studios to Amsterdam coffee bars; from the plains of Sudan to the wilds of Tasmania. But will his song You Broke My Heart Like a Bird's Egg [But Now the Yolk's On You] ever be a hit anywhere ?
