Wham! were the band that never underestimated the power of pop, nor the healing powers it possessed. In 1981, what started out as a boyhood friendship, catapulted two suburban adolescents to worldwide pop domination, becoming icons of their era. While Andrew Ridgeley may have appeared to have stood in George Michael's shadow, he always stood at the heart of the band. Until now, Andrew has kept private the special memories of life as a pop sensation. In this tender retelling of life as one half of the iconic duo, Andrew reveals the truth behind the triumphs, heartbreaks and of course, the fierce friendship with George that endured it all.
