From his youth, through his brief but beautiful impact on the charts, to the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis that effectively ended his career, the musicians that define Clifford T. Ward's unique talent are as varied as they are impressive—Jimmy Page, Paul McCartney, Karl Hyde, Jeff Lynne, and Tim Rice. All speak between these pages of a truly extraordinary man that the outside world, sadly, remembers only for one single and one beautiful album, way back in 1973. In this affectionate, humorous, and exhaustively researched book, now updated following Clifford's death in 2001, the author's unique style, with his inside knowledge of music and musicians, makes good the case to reconsider this hugely neglected talent.
