Yesterday was the official release date of ‘Pop Don’t Stop: A Biography’, the first ever biography about Kim Wilde. The book has arrived with various UK residents, and fans in other countries will follow shortly. As previously mentioned, the first 1000 copies will come with a signature by the author and an exclusive 2 track CD-single featuring never-before-released versions of ‘Child Come Away’ and ‘Sparks’. (With only about 100 copies to go, these are going to be sold out pretty soon!)
The book starts in 1939 with the birth of Marty Wilde and then continues through Kim’s career, all the songs she’s recorded and performed, until the Greatest Hits album that is out in August. It features interviews with Anton Corbijn, Richard Blanshard, Gregg Masuak, Nick Beggs, Sabrina Winter and Steve Norman and many colourful photographs from throughout her career.
Seriously one of the best biographies I have ever read. (Amazon)
