‘Sometimes you are forced to take stock and wonder what your life’s all been about, and where it is going. Ever since I was a boy I’ve thought that music makes things better. A Different Stage is my love letter to music, a celebration of the songs and sounds that have inspired me and meant something in my life.’
In this warm, intimate and humorous book, rich with nostalgia and unexpected intimate detail, Gary Barlow unpacks the people, music, places, things and cultural phenomena that have made him the man that he is. From the working men’s club where it all began through to the sold out stadium tours, this is the story of Gary’s life told through music.
Filled with a mixture of brand new photography from Gary’s current one-man show and incredibly personal unseen personal photos and notebooks, A Different Stage is a beautiful and sumptuous book.
