Item description for Steve Marriott: All Too Beautiful: Fully Revised, Expanded and Updated by Paolo Hewitt...

"Compelling reading."-Mojo

"A riveting account of the singer's life."-Daily Express

Cockney child actor Marriott was singer, songwriter, and guitarist with 1960s pop stars The Small Faces before joining Peter Frampton to form Humble Pie-one of the biggest bands in the United States in the early 1970s.

Tragically, just before a 1991 comeback, Marriott died in a house fire. An influence on Rod Stewart, Marriott is adored by Blur, Oasis, and Paul Weller.

All Too Beautiful was published in hardcover to universal critical acclaim and was shortlisted for the 2005 US ARSC (Association for Recorded Sound Collections) Awards for excellence in historical recording research.

Reviews - What do customers think about Steve Marriott: All Too Beautiful: Fully Revised, Expanded and Updated?

Sad story of a great talent that never reached his potential  Jun 8, 2007
This is a story fleshed out through numerous interviews with people who were connected or involved with Steve Marriott at various points in his life. It is a sad story that I found quite frustrating at times (as a fan) because you realise how the booze, drugs and record industry parasites distracted and distorted his talent to further develop his musical talents.
Cheers to the Pieman!!!!! R.I.P.  Oct 26, 2006
I've always thought Marriott was a truely gifted musician and Humble Pie was a truely exceptional ban, but I knew very little about Steve's earlier times with the Small Faces and before. My only complaint about this book is it was written by Mods and mainly for Mods. By this I mean that almost 2/3 of the story takes place before Humble Pie happened and the authors lament endlessly through out the remainder of the book about how the quality of Marriott's music was never as good after the Small Faces. That is simply untrue. There are certainly many Humble Pie fans around that would disagree. The great Humble Pie albums like 'Rock On' are scarcely mentioned, 'Smokin' gets a whopping 1/2 page review. 'Eat It' which is certainly the best Pie album gets slammed. Everyone always complains about the sound quality of 'Eat It', it's been years since I listened to the album, but I think the reissued CD certainly does the sound justice. 'Thunderbox' is deemed the best Humble Pie album but in reality is probably the sixth out of nine. Anyway the entire Humble Pie saga runs 40 pages. Steve's life after Humble Pie is really kind of sad and at times funny. He would tell anyone where to get off. He also had a very chronic drug and alcohol problem which was surely the cause of most of his bad luck and untimately claimed his life. Having said that it was a great read and I couldn't put it down. Marriott was a huge talent and his music is alot better that 99% of the dribble that passes for song nowadays.
The stuff operas are made of  Jan 27, 2006
Paolo Hewitt has done a good job of describing the tragi-lovely life of Steve Marriott, a serious rock and roller who lived to make music, instead of making music to get rich. (Readers will be shocked by how little money he made.) Clearly Marriott was gifted, funny, infuriating, and damaged by years of betrayal. The tragic parts were mitigated by Steve's optimistic outlook. The book is well researched, well-written, non-judgmental, and has a good selection of photos. I recommend Ian MacLagan's book, "All The Rage", as a good follow-up read. (MacLagan's book has a happy ending, which you will crave after reading the Marriott bio.)
