    Firstly, I want to thank you both so much for putting this incredibly insightful book together. Over the years I’ve accumulated quite a collection of autobiographies of my favorite musicians such as Andy and John Taylor of Duran Duran and former Duran and Madonna producer Nile Rodgers. After reading this particular book, I was so pleased to hear directly from members of some of my favorite bands who have yet to write their own memoirs such as Tears for Fears, Human League and Depeche Mode. I was wondering if you had any plans to write a second book on the subject with bands that weren’t included in the first book. I would love to hear from New Wave acts like Missing Persons, The Fixx and Naked Eyes for starters. Cheers!

      Thanks for writing. Glad you enjoyed it. We hope to get to all the bands you mentioned and a lot more!
