This guy lived life to the fullest, and if he was around today would be some kind of Instagram influencer which he personally would of hatted. By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions.

A very different and interesting autobiography about someone whose lifestyle and vivacity should have made for a much shorter book, but somehow he continued to live through it all. he sounded like women were more important than his children and he discarded them when it wasn't at his convenience, but that's just what you get from the story. Tony looks back on the extreme highs and lows of an unparalleled life, goes exclusively behind the scenes of the Club Tropicana video shoot which put his unique hotel on the map and discusses his relationships with guests/friends including George Michael, Freddie Mercury, Julio Iglesias and lover Grace Jones. The Pikes years then, were Tony settling down and reigning it in a bit, which is pretty hilarious when you consider that he was still tearing the absolute arse out of it in the VIP room at the back of Ku well into his 60's. The books enjoyable and not a taxing read - you get the sense that some things are glossed over with not enough detail for me and I think I was hoping for a more robust dissection of Tony Pikes character and what made him tick rather than a book of anecdotes but none the less, it was an entertaining read and I would recommend for anyone with an interest in celebrity culture and hedonism.Pikes, a hedonist at heart that went from a terrible upbringing to a dream life only a handful of people ever achieve.

Great story's told by great man but definitely not for the faint-hearted (in a good way) and you definitely wont get board and it only gets better by the page :) anyway great book definitely one of my favorites now! His name dropping of the entertainment crowd he attracted with a large flair of misogynistic sexual encounters was repetitive and drearily drab. El conta a so storia e noialtri che semo tutti dei mona se alzemo la mattina presto per un casso de lavoro e niente mone foreste.

Elsewhere he tried it on with Sade and received a stone cold knock back in no uncertain terms and tells a tale of having to stash a completely trollied Kenny Everett in a house round the corner from Ku… Oh, and, you guessed it, a whole load more shagging.Known as Mr Ibiza, he was the embodiment of Balearic hedonism, a brash, hard-drinking, drug-taking philanderer whose way with women would have made even the love poet blush. I’m always interested in stories like this and there are some truly brilliant anecdotes in here (and some shocking ones too). Under Tony’s management it soon became a glamorous celebrity bolthole for the likes of Freddie Mercury, Grace Jones, Julio Iglesias and perhaps most famously, George Michael. I have to say ,when I started reading this book ,I thought it was going to descend into the mire of vulgarity.

Ibiza legend who founded legendary celeb hangout Pikes Ibiza and helped turn island into party paradise. ciò, yu se un bel personaggio, se queo che faceva i drink nel video de club tropicana, un gran simpaticon ma el iera anche un fio de na bona donna, el gaveva sempre voia de ciavar e tutte quee che ghe capitava a tiro le impeniva senza pietà ma ancha i omeni che non pensè. Just finished reading the autobiography on the legendary Mr Pike and I’ve gotta say it’s one of the most mind blowing life stories I’ve ever heard! Seems a bit of a fantasist - how somebody so constantly drugged up can remember half the things he supposedly does amazes me. Mr The Story Behind The Ibiza Legend presents a raw, unfiltered look at a success story unlike any other.Anyone with an interest in the White Isle and its colourful characters will find this story fascinating.
