'A story of brave dreams and musical passions' - Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull
I sit, I think, I write my story of longing, of long agoI try to fit a lifetime in a hundred and fifty thousand words, blow by blow.- Remo, on writing his autobiography, from his song 'Keep the Faith'
Remo Fernandes is a legend: there's no other word for him really.
When he started out as a relatively unknown artist in the 1970s, Remo would record his first albums in his home studio and distribute them around Goa on his yellow scooter. But soon, he was to become a national craze, with blockbuster hits to his credit in English and Hindi pop, and in film music as well. His stage performances were sensational and brought his incredible musical talent to the fore.
REMO is an extraordinary memoir. It is the story of a rich and full life - filled with professional highs and lows as well as personal triumphs and tragedies. Remo takes the reader along on a rollercoaster ride through his growing-up years, his travels, his musical journey, and his many adventures...
Written with great zest, warmth and humour, and complete with hundreds of photographs and sketches from Remo's personal collection, this is a book that is a thrill and a joy to read.
