Books by Mike Scott

Adventures of a Waterboy
Adventures of a Waterboy is a fascinating, evocative memoir by one of the great British songwriters of the past four decades. It is an honest and revealing work, by turns heartfelt and funny, that tells the story of a cocky Scot with a sound in his head and his lifelong efforts to reproduce that sound – a story that runs from teenage fandom to international stardom, from Scotland to New York City and beyond.

He can write. Really write.” – The Times
Grippingly candid” – Mojo
“A wonderfully evocative autobiography. So good it makes you wonder if he missed his true vocation as a writer” – Irish Business Post
