One Hit WonderlandBook - 2007
Tony Hawks tasted fame...and now he wants more. Before he was a best-selling author, a TV and radio presenter, Tony Hawks was a pop star. As Morris Minor and the Majors, he had a Number Four hit with "Strutter Rap" in 1988. Now he wants another hit. This is the account of his worldwide adventure in search of that elusive follow-up single. From the studios of Nashville to the wilds of Tasmania, Hawks will do anything to have a hit. He changes musical styles with a bewildering lack of integrity. He hypes charts, he gets remixes. Is it possible to get a hit anywhere in the world with a song called "You Broke My Heart Like A Bird's Egg (But Now The Yolk's On You)"?
