Description

Paul Oakenfold has sold over 5 million records, has played to over 50 million people and is, according to the Guinness Book of Records, the most successful DJ in the world. Now, in Paul Oakenfold - The Authorised Biography, Richard Norris reveals the fascinating story of Paul's rise from South London soul boy to Hollywood superstar. Spanning more than two decades, Norris follows the twists and turns of Paul's career and, with it, the rise of the multi-million-pound industry that is club culture. As we near the end of the first decade of the New Millennium, Paul's star is still in the ascendant. With two Grammy nominations under his belt, he continues to work with the biggest names in music - Madonna, Justin Timberlake and Snoop Dogg to name but a few. Packed full of revealing interviews with the movers and shakers of the music industry, and based on two years of in-depth intervies with Oakenfold himself, this book tells the extraordinary story of a man whose life defines dance music.show more
