Description

Richard Blade’s autobiography is much more than a spotlight on any one decade.   Instead, he gives you a jaw-dropping, uncensored insider’s look into the world of music, movies, and television and its biggest stars, starting in the sixties and continuing through to the new century. Richard takes you on a journey that few have experienced: from his early days as a student at Oxford to the wild, lascivious nights of being a disco DJ touring the clubs of Europe, to coming to America and working with Michael Jackson, Barbra Streisand, and Sarah Jessica Parker and finally breaking through into the L.A. radio scene and becoming the number one morning drive personality in California. From his TV and radio shows to his feature films and live gigs, Richard shares stories that have until now remained secret.  His unique perspective will take you on the road with Depeche Mode, to Australia with Spandau Ballet, into the recording studio with Morrissey, and onto the main stage at Live Aid with Duran Duran. He opens up about his friendships with Michael Hutchence and George Michael, as well as his passionate love affair with Terri Nunn of Berlin. This is a no-holds-barred look at life, sex, and death, set to a pulsing backbeat of music.  For the first time, Richard Blade shares his extraordinary story, allowing us to see the world through his eyes.

    I have always been a fan of Richard Blade and other than the music, he is the best memory of sitting in front of the radio in the eighties. I looked forward to hearing not not only telling you what song was coming next, but in such a way that you felt like you knew the bands a little better. That personal connection is what sets his style apart. The book was the best I’ve read in a long time. Outrageously great stories, you have lived the life! To a happy future for you and Krista...Cheers! Thank you. I’ll be tuning into SiriusXM to listen to what you have next.

    What an amazing gift you’ve given us all...those eighties kids (like me). Your accounts allowed me to relive so many amazing experiences during the 80’s. It’s curious how our lives are truly set to a soundtrack, and for me that connection comes through you and KROQ, of course. My son turned me onto to your book after hearing your interview on Kevin and Bean’s morning show. You’ve truly inspired generations of music lovers and I’m having to say you’re continuing to do so... Thanks Richard❤️

    What an incredible book! I haven’t been this into a book in years. My heart was happy reliving all the times I heard new “Kroq” music played by Richard Blade. I had the amazing opportunity to meet him once, in a club of course! I hope he knows what a positive impact he had on so many of us. I am grateful having been lucky enough to grow up listening to him from age 8. This book is definitely my favorite of all time. A perfectly well written first person account that couldn’t have been told any other way. Simply a wonderful book!
