You Don't Have to Say You Love Me by Simon Napier-Bell
Book DescriptionYou probably know Simon Napier-Bell as the manager of the Yardbirds. Or you may know him as the man who managed Marc Bolan, or Japan. You should definitely know him as the man who managed Wham! And if none of these rings a bell, maybe you'll remember him as the man who co-wrote 'You Don't Have To Say You Love Me' for Dusty Springfield. You Don't Have To Say You Love Me is one of the funniest books you will read and equally provoking. From his revelation that the entire music industry was motivated by sex, to an embarrassing come-on from a suicidal Brian Epstein, it's all shocking stuff. But when you're on the run from the German police with Marc Bolan, brothel-hopping with Keith Moon and generally living the life of Riley at the music industry's expense, it would be a shame not to share those amazing experiences with the rest of the world, wouldn't it? Of all the great pop-music books written, it is worth savouring You Don't Have To Say You Love Me for its brilliant sideways insight into one of the most exciting cultural periods Britain has ever seen.

Ta-Ra-Ra-Boom-De-Ay, Paperback (May 2015)
The author takes you inside the world of popular music - not just a creative industry, but a business that has made people rich beyond their wildest dreams. He balances seductive anecdotes - pulling back the curtain on the gritty and absurd side of the industry - with an insightful exploration of the relationship between creativity and money.
Marc Bolan, Paperback (August 2008)
Marc Bolan remains an extraordinary cult figure, as contemporary an icon today as in his heyday of 1970-73. From Tolkien-influenced acoustic songs with Tyrannosaurus Rex to wowing teenage girls on Top of the Pops, this London boy had the raw material to turn himself into a star. This biography explores the career of this superstar of glam-rock.
I'm Coming to Take You to Lunch, Paperback (April 2006)
Pop manager Simon Napier-Bell had enough of pop groups. He'd had enough of the constant grief at home with his two ex-boyfriends bickering and bleeding him dry; and most of all he'd had enough of the music biz. But then he simultaneously fell in love with a passion - the Far East; and a dynamic duo - George and Andrew - jointly called Wham!
Black Vinyl, White Powder, Paperback (January 2002)» View all books by Simon Napier-Bell
A 50-year history of the British music business. Napier Bell, who discovered Mark Bolan, uses his personal insight to describe the industry. An industry where bad behaviour is often encouraged, drugs are rife, and where artists are pushed in the name of profit and ego.

Author Biography - Simon Napier-Bell
In the 1960s Simon Napier-Bell managed the Yardbirds and co-wrote Dusty Springfield's huge hit 'You Don't Have To Say You Love Me' (also the title of his first book - 'the classic hidden history of Sixties pop' Jon Savage). He subsequently managed Marc Bolan, Japan, and Wham! as well as many other laughably less successful groups.
