In music and tech, such an instinctive perfectionist, thoughtful and perceptive. This is a story of creativity fights commercial greed, and how technology leads us forwards in ways we can never predict. I grew up with Thomas' music, my vinyl of Flat Earth and Prefab Sprout's Steve McQueen sit in a cupboard in England, worn thin. I play the guitar, engineer, mix other folks' music, fix arrangements, every day, striving for... maybe I caught this bug the moment I heard the opening bars of "Bonny". The book is an inspiration for anyone who writes or loves music, or indeed works in tech innovation, so thank-you Thomas, your boat studio sounds waaaaay cool x
Like the old lifeboat he works in, Dolby's career has been tossed around in the storm that was the first dot com boom. Does it come right? A very atypical rock autobiography. No boring tales of bachanalia here. Unless you are interested in a personal history of music and tech in the 80's and 90's it might not be for you. His homes keep collapsing. He reads very well.
loved this book, can't recommend it enough! The ups and downs of the music and technology industry so well explained with Thomas great narration style.
This is without doubt, the best audiobook I have ever heard. Full of amazing stories about the music and tech industry, Thomas' poetic narration showcases his skill as a story teller. This 10 hour listen had me gripped the whole way through. I would rate this a 20 out of 10. Do it
