Glenn's Autobiography

  • I was very pleased to hear Glenn will be releasing his life story to the public, but rather disappointed that this will only be available to a few people. I am sure if the book was priced right, millions of copies would have sold and there would have been many happy fans and lots of money made in the process.

    I hope that some time in the not too distant future that Glenn's life story will be available at a price that all fans can afford and that sufficient copies will be available.

    What are other peoples thoughts?

  • Hi mrj2. Welcome to the site :thumbup:

    You'll find a lot of thoughts on the book within the forum, be sure to check them out and everything else on here.

    It's not available to just a few; as has been mentioned here before; what has been announced so far, are the Limited Edition's. At a later date, there will no doubt be a release for what you might call, a "regular" edition!

    Please read all this carefully, there's no reason to be confused at this point :) By the way, welcome aboard mrj2 :cool: :thumbup:

  • Am I correct in thinking that there is only a limited edition of Glenn's autobiography being sold. I am rather disappointed if that is the case. I think it would be better if all fans had access to his life story at a reasonable cost. I am sure there would be demand for sufficient profit to be made.

    Correct me if I am wrong, will there be no affordable book for the average fan to read?

    See my earlier reply!

  • 110 replies - and for quite a while I have been wondering if anybody new to this thread is actually still reading through the whole of it before posting a new comment :huh: It's much easier and helps if you visit the forum more often ;)

    R E L A X, everybody :cool:

    HERE'S what I posted weeks ago, and I know what I'm talking about - this is from reply no.69 fyi:

    Another example? Here we go:

    Medeski, Martin & Wood anybody? Great band. Relased 3 (three!) new albums (CDs that is) of music last year. Yes - three. You can get them for less than 5 Euros each on eBay.
    There's more to this though: A Limited Edition super heavy vinyl sized Box set, containing all three albums on CDs + exclusive Bonus tracks, a Bonus Disc with live tracks and another Bonus Disc with remixes. A full-length documentary DVD about the making of the album. 2 180g vinyl discs with further unreleased material from the sessions.
    For GBP 124,99! Yes. Look HERE.

    I never heard anybody complain.

    Also, I rarely hear complaints about VIP packages for live shows - go ahead if you want to buy them - I can be at the same show for much less and still enjoy it! Remember Glenn's meet & greet at The Robin last June? No VIP tickets needed for this. Glenn wasn't in best health, but he signed every single item he was being asked to sign, and he had every photo taken - hundreds, probably.

    Again, I am absolutely certain that this Limited Edition Book is only the first run, and a Standard Edition will follow quite swiftly. And all the words will be the same. And the audio tracks will make the rounds aswell - or is anybody seriously doubting that?

    Yet as long as no deal has been signed, we won't get more information or an official confirmation. Same as with tour dates until they are officially confirmed, and same as with the new band name that is only being released when its 100% trademarked.

    No more coffee today :D

    Cheers,
    Christian

  • Yes I did read all the entries before I posted - hence the reason I posted what I did.

    "Grant me prudence to avoid him that flattereth me, and to endure patiently him that contradicteth me."

  • I can't wait for my copy to arrive! And if I couldn't have afforded it at the time - well I would have waited for the regular edition! I'd have been chomping at the bit for it but I would have waited!

  • I consider myself 'a proper fan' as I have been with Glenn since the Trapeze days...but I also have to 'echo' some of Dr. Denbow's sentiments.....:(

  • As has been mentioned here several times.......this "limited edition" is not for everyone. It is a collectors item. If it is not for you, then wait for the "regular edition" and enjoy your purchase. As a long time GH fan and GH collector, this "limited edition" is for me and I am really looking forward to it!

  • I sent an e-mail to Foruli asking if they had a publication date for the book, as I've ordered the deluxe edition.

    They have now replied and told me the book has been delayed until the first half of 2011. This is because a new archive of material has been found that will lead to an extra 15,000 words and new photographs being added.

    In the meantime, they said that anyone who has pre-ordered the book will receive a letter from Glenn and possibly an additional 'little something to make up for the wait'.

    I'm a bit disappointed, but I'm sure the final product will be well worth it. Guess I'll just have to be more patient.
