Best biographries you've read? - GF - General Forum - The Liverpool Way Jump to content

Welcome to the new and improved TLW!

 

Some of you may experience issues logging in and will get an 'incorrect password' error. Don't worry, you haven't typed it in wrong and your password hasn't been changed. You will need to reset it though in order to log in. Click the reset password link and you will receive an email with your new temporary password. Once logged in, you need to choose a new password (or restore to your old one) otherwise you will be locked out again.

 

If you have an out of date email address linked to your account, then you won't receive the new password. If that's the case then you'll need to email me (dave @liverpoolway.co.uk) or send me a tweet @theliverpoolway and I'll update your password manually. 

 

Any other problems or questions just let me know.

 

Thanks

Dave

I finished that a while back. Great book, basically a child in a man's body. Some real eye openers in it.

Yeah he didn't half do some shagging though!

Roy Shaws book is brilliant. Cockney hardcase, who was sent to broadmoor and lived a very colourful life.

I've read Lenny Mclean's book, never Shaw's though. Decent read, mentions Shaw and all the other 'faces' loads.

Shaws is better in my opinion. Read it if you liked Mcleans.

Billy By Pamela Stephenson about Billy Connolly. 

 

Stig, nothing personal but I don't have the power of neg but if I did I would double neg you. From his stand-up days in the 70's he built his whole reputation on the being ant-establishment Glasgow/Irish/Socialist/working class hero thru his journey to become an integral part of the establishment and first on the list of Prince Charles's party guests. He chooses not to pay his taxes into the Scottish economy (he's not alone in that) His comments on Ken Bigley removed any doubt in my mind that he is a massive hypocritical cunt. He took a 180% turn from what he proported to be. I can't think of worse let down for the lads. He's pretty much a male Cilla Black. Fuck him and his 'remembered' crimes.

 

Ps His altered faced banshee of a missus hardly screams 'integrity' at you either.

George foreman. Always liked him.

Tony Benn.

bret hart's as a fan when I was a kid the book as an adult was brilliant. Interesting to read which wrestlers were handy in real life, plus the steroids sex and scandal.

Another vote for Agassi's from me, best I've read. Not even a tennis fan.

 

I started Chris Hadfield's (the astronaut) last night and was hooked immediately.

Is that not an auto-biography?
