Tony Visconti: Bowie, Bolan and the Brooklyn Boy — The Autobiography (Harper Collins)
Robert Sandall, The Sunday Times, 18 February 2007
IT CAN'T have been easy choosing the alliterative lineup for the sub-title of this rock'n'roll memoir. After Phil Spector, Tony Visconti is probably the most famous American record producer of the pop era, and over a career spanning 40 years, he has worked or crossed paths with most of the British rock aristocracy. Factor in his doughty exploits as a ladies' man and this book could just as catchily have been billed McCartney, Morrissey and the Man who Married Mary Hopkin; or even Lynott, Lennon and His Chinese Lover (aka My Ex-Wife May Pang).
