Shining Star – Braving the Elements of Earth, Wind & Fire is a memoir from the lead singer of the group – Philip Bailey. The book tells about his life and how he has always been interested in music since a very young age. Then he found out that he could get paid for playing music!
This give a behind the scenes look to sex, drugs, rock n roll , payola, etc. into the music industry around the time that EWF was coming up. Certainly an interesting story and I always like to hear all the behind the scenes things going on. Especially with a group that often switched out some of the members.
I dare you to read this book and not end up with “Shining Star” stuck in your head for the rest of the day. (or week!)
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
