For more than a decade, Derek Philpott and his son, Dave, have been writing to pop stars from the 1960s to the 90s to take issue with the lyrics of some of their best-known songs. But then, to their great surprise, the pop stars started writing back… Dear Mr Pop Star contains 100 of Derek and Dave’s greatest hits, including correspondence with Katrina and the Waves, Tears for Fears, Squeeze, The Housemartins, Suzi Quatro, Devo, Deep Purple, Nik Kershaw, T’Pau, Human League, Eurythmics, Wang Chung, EMF, Mott the Hoople, Heaven 17, Jesus Jones, Johnny Hates Jazz, Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine, Chesney Hawkes and many, many more.
First of all I have no idea where to start I am so used to talking about the plot and characters in a story. But this book isn’t like that at all.
This is very different to what I would normally read the authors have put together a book using letters they have written and not forgetting the replies, to and from singers for more than a decade. Being a massive fan of music 80’s decade I loved the whole idea of this. and there are plenty of artists from this decade in there to…..The book features letters used between the 1960’s and 90’s.
Anyone that is a music fan will also love this book.
It is very unique and each letter brings something different and most of them will make you LOL I couldn’t put it down It is certainly a very addictive read. I mean imagine being a pop star and receiving a letter asking what your song is all about?! it is just to funny for words.
Dear Mr Pop Star is a very highly entertaining read which I highly recommend
