About this item
The 1980s songwriting partnership of McLennan/ Forster was a little like an Australian Lennon/ McCartney. The pair wrote all the band’s distinctively original material and, like their more famous counterparts, shared the credits and alternated on lead vocals. Grant & I is an extraordinary portrait of an intense, creative, sometimes fraught friendship that represented a genuine meeting of artistic minds.
In Grant & I, the reader is given a front-row seat at the sessions that produced an incredibly prolific and diverse song catalogue. Just as The Go-Betweens were like no other music group, so this book is like no other music memoir. It is wise and witty, poignant, insightful, self-deprecating and knowledgeable. Robert Forster is as natural a storyteller and prose writer as he is a songwriter, and Grant & I is an unforgettable ride.
