Details

This is the unconventional and inspirational autobiography reflecting the many facets of Goldie's life. Cult-status graffiti artist, hip-hop icon, DJ, actor and producer, Goldie is a total original who succeeded in nurturing an extraordinary talent despite a highly damaged childhood. Brought up in a series of foster homes and institutions in the west Midlands, Goldie was neglected and abused for years. He turned to a life of crime in his teenage years, and became a burglar and safe-cracker with a serious drug problem. But he was also an artist on the rise, instinctively tapping into his unrestrained creativity. Through his own label he has produced and mixed bands such as the Fugees, Garbage, the Stone Roses and Pat Metheny. Madonna chose him to DJ at her comeback gig in London in November 1999. Goldie is now also an actor, appearing in a Bond film, Guy Ritchie's "Snatch" and "EastEnders". In November 2002, he spent one week in the Celebrity Big Brother house. This book is written in collaboration with Paul Gorman, a highly respected music journalist.
