Strings Attached is the much anticipated authorised biography of John Williams, one of the most accomplished and celebrated musicians of his generation. From his childhood in Australia to his stellar career in London and around the world, John Williams has lived an extraordinary life. Master of the classical repertoire, he took the guitar to a wider audience with the band SKY and by his championing of the music of South America and Africa. William Starling came to know John Williams through their mutual friend, jazz guitarist John Etheridge. As their friendship developed, he put it to the maestro that it was time for a biography. To his lasting amazement, the famously private Williams agreed. Strings Attached is the product of extensive research and uniquely privileged access to John Williams, his family, friends and musical associates. It is the first telling of the fascinating life and career of a world-renowned musician and, equally, the story of a man and the making of his identity.
