Long out of print and hard to find, Steve Priest’s autobiography, “Are You Ready, Steve?” is now available as an e-book. You can read the e-book on any device that supports PDF files, including PCs, iPad, Kindle, etc.
This is a self-penned story about show business from a different perspective. I have tried to be as honest as possible and stick to the truth. There have been numerous articles released over the years regarding The Sweet. Mny of these contain half-truths and, in some cases, downright lies. One UNAUTHORIZED publication, which has the title that is a play on the title of Strung Up, is full of complete nonsense. I mean to clear up the gray areas.
I hope to convey what it was like to be a young boy watching his idols on television. I also hope to possibly change some skeptics’ minds as to how talented we really were as a band. There are many pitfalls into which one can stumble on the way to stardom. I hope this book will give some idea of how to avoid them.
This is not a Girl Scout manual. There are some very steamy accounts of some close encounters of the sexual kind, so keep this away from young kids. Obviously, sex is part of the territory in rock and roll, and I thought I should include some of my experiences. It will also convince some readers of my real sexual orientation.
So come with me on a riveting roller-coaster ride through Rock-Land. I’ll meet you again at the end.
