Thomas Dolby became one of the most recognizable figures of the
synth pop movement of early-'80s new wave. He played synth on
Foreigner's 4, Def Leppard's Pyromania and Joan Armatrading's Walk
Under Ladders and supported David Bowie at Live Aid. He also wrote
the score for Fever Pitch.
His last studio album was 2011's A Map of the Floating City, which featured with guest appearances from Mark Knopfler, Regina Spektor, Imogen Heap, and others. He lives in Suffolk.
'[Dolby's] journey is as amazing as the book is well written. From
start to finish, I thoroughly enjoyed every page. Brilliant.' --
'Engaging, emotional, funny and surprising' -- JJ Abrams
'This warm and immensely readable book will appeal to anyone interested in machine-driven Eighties pop or the dotcom revolution.' -- Mark Ellen
'Extraordinary, and full of tech at every turn.'
