Sailor: The Official Biography

A detailed chronicle of this quirky band that rose to fame in the mid-seventies and are still touring today. Based around the in-depth interviews with all the band members as well as the road crew and fans from around the world. It delves deep into the past, taking the reader back to the events surrounding the band members long before they came together and then carefully fills in every known fact throughout its pages. Complete with a full discography, chart placings and a photo section, many of which come from the band's own collection. The author was also given unique access to the record company's archives. The book has been revised and updated since it was first self-published in 2004, which helps to make this official biography the definitive word on Sailor.
