And we’re very pleased to announce Wayne will be appearing tonight in The Dublin Castle for a RocknRoll Book Club Q and A and book signing event with bespoke Mission inspired DJ sets mirroring Wayne’s remarkable career. The book chronicles Wayne’s life from childhood up to The Mission and everything in between. Salad Daze is a confessional, engaging and explicit account of life in the eye of rock’s storm told with wit, warmth, humour and laugh-out-loud moments. A limited Special Edition version will include a personalised certificate of authenticity, a double A side 7” single of two unreleased demos, a bespoke USB stick with a further nine unreleased demos, and extra photographs. In addition, three Special Editions will each contain a golden ticket; one to win Wayne’s first guitar, and two to win exclusive art prints. Each chapter of Salad Daze is accompanied by a playlist specially curated by Wayne to listen to while reading, and features artists as diverse as Elvis, Radiohead, Suicide, Frank Sinatra, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, David Bowie, Television, T Rex, Cigarettes After Sex, Iggy Pop, and Telly Savalas. Stopping off tonight for an indepth interview with RNR Book Club’s Julie HamillWayne has also announced a full European tour throughout the autumn. Born in Bristol and raised as a Mormon, Wayne had his epiphany as a young boy watching Marc Bolan and T. Rex on Top Of The Pops. Seeing his destiny in a blinding flash of glitter, mascara and dark curls, he decided he was going to be a rock star too. Later, leaving Bristol to move to Liverpool – home of his beloved Liverpool Football Club and birthplace his favourite band The Beatles – it wasn’t long before Wayne surrendered to excess and debauchery as he gained recognition and notoriety as lead singer and principal songwriter in The Mission, after previously being guitarist with The Sisters Of Mercy, Dead Or Alive, and a member of Pauline Murray’s Invisible Girls.He is one of a kind, and whether he likes it or not, he’s an absolute legend, and I can’t think of anyone on planet Earth who has a better story to tell.” Gary Numan “I toured a lot with The Mission and Wayne was much too bright and nice a guy to be in the rock business. He always had a sense of humour.”  Iggy PopAfter years and years of living with repression and religious guilt, I had finally shaken off those shackles to become the clichéd licentious, degenerate, promiscuous rock star – everything that my mother feared I’d become.” Wayne Hussey   NB Advance tickets are available inclusive of a book which will be signed on the night at just £23.00, or you can simply buy the book on the night.
