Mark Kelly – Marillion, Misadventures and Marathons, The Life And Times Of Mad Jack (Book)
Marillion’s Mark Kelly has had six decades to consider a life less ordinary and the decisions he made that took him there.
From a dirt-poor early childhood in Ireland to some of the biggest stages around the world, Kelly’s journey has described an arc that any fiction writer might blanch at.
The departure from the band of their singer at the height of their powers; reinventing the music industry wheel by pioneering crowdfunding to help his band survive; and going from club shows to arenas and almost all the way back again.
Written during 2021, Kelly’s autobiography charts the remarkable rise and fall and rise of one of rock music’s most enduring bands and the keyboard player at the heart of that journey.
“Mark Kelly deserves so much credit. An incredibly gifted musician and composer, he has now written a book that is compelling reading. It’s rare to find such honesty in a book like this and undoubtedly it was written from the heart.” - RICK WAKEMAN
“There’s poignancy, self-reflection and even self-flagellation. An immensely enjoyable and entertaining romp through 40 plus years of prog history.” - PROG
