NME about his new book – which explores his time working with the likes of David Bowie, The Rolling Stones, Prince, Britney Spears and more.With 45 years experience in the entertainment industry, Edwards – who also founded celebrated PR firm The Outside Organisation – has represented clients including the biggest musicians on the planet, as well as royalty, sports legends and more.Now, he has compiled his most fascinating anecdotes into a new book: I Was There: Dispatches from a Life in Rock and Roll. From his gruelling mentorship from Mick Jagger to watching his office casually destroyed by The Who‘s Keith Moon, playing football with Bob Marley and watching David Bowie’s legacy evolve over four decades — these are just some of the memories that Edwards explores in the memoir.“It feels like I went through life very fast, without ever really looking back… until now,” he told NME.

Not fading away: The Rolling Stones rock on strong at Metlife Stadium — in their 80s!
Mick Jagger still have moves like that?That’s the question you kept asking yourself — in a state of complete and utter marvel — during the Rolling Stones’ first of two “Hackney Diamonds” Tour stops at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford on Thursday night.On his first tour as an octogenarian — he turned 80 last July — the man who made Adam Levine look old on Maroon 5’s 2011 smash “Moves Like Jagger” is still out-shimmying us all.Father Time is still on his side.Seeing Jumping Jack Jagger work as hard as ever to give the people what they came — and paid a pretty penny — was enough to restore the faith of even the most cynical New Yorker in the power of rock ’n’ roll.Indeed, 60 years later after the Stones released their self-titled debut in 1964, the eternally bad-boy Brits staged a rock resurrection that the genre desperately needs.It wasn’t only rock ’n’ roll — it was a revelation.And it was in large part due to Jagger, who seems to have Benjamin Buttoned his energy — and body.The man can still rock skinny jeans better than anybody else in the stadium.Jagger was in such perpetual motion from the time he hit the stage to “Start Me Up” — the Stones’ 1981 hit that remains one of the most perfect concert openers of all time — that it was almost a shock when, four songs in, he struck the perfect still pose at the end of “Hackney Diamonds” single “Angry.”Still, if there was ever one single moment that he seemed out of breath, it wasn’t captured by the giant video screens that put his famous lips on blast.And, as if he somehow still had anything to prove, he was relentlessly selling and strutting to new tunes such as “Mess It Up” from the Stones’ underappreciated “Hackney Diamonds” album — which, released last October, was the

New Beatles book reveals George Harrison’s inspiration to pick up guitar: “I remember going to see Cliff Richard and thinking fuck it – I could do better than that”
The Beatles has revealed George Harrison‘s inspiration to pick up the guitar.Due for release this Thursday (April 11), All You Need Is Love is described as “a ground-breaking oral history of the Beatles and how it all came to an end”.It is comprised of interviews taken from the controversial book The Love You Make (1983), which was written by Steven Gaines and Peter Brown – the personal assistant to Beatles manager Brian Epstein.In one section, Harrison speaks about what first ignited his interest in becoming a musician.“I remember being a kid of about twelve, dreaming of big motorboats and tropical islands and things which had nothing to do with Liverpool, which was dark and cold,” he explained to Brown and Gaines in 1980 (via The Times).“I remember going to see Cliff Richard and thinking fuck it – I could do better than that.”As Guitar.COM notes, this rivalry would eventually encourage Harrison to perfect his guitar playing – with Richard going on to envy the Fab Four’s fame and success.In 1964, the singer responded to The Beatles’ performance on The Ed Sullivan Show by saying: “It’s ridiculous! Has everyone forgotten me? What’s going on?”Despite the competition between The Beatles and Richard, John Lennon reportedly once argued that British music would not have been the same if the ‘Devil Woman’ artist hadn’t come along.“Before Cliff Richard and ‘Move It’, there was nothing worth listening to in England,” he is said to have claimed (via Gold Radio UK).All You Need Is Love also includes the claim that Yoko Ono instructed John Lennon how to use heroin and details a Lennon encounter that made The Rolling Stones’ Mick Jagger feel “uncomfortable”.An official description reads: “Based on never-before-published or heard
