After All These Years – Our Story’ – Autobiography
2013 is proving to be an amazing year for Foster & Allen as they release their first ever Autobiography through Virgin Books / Random House Group ‘After All These Years – Our Story’.
After All These Years is the combined life story of Mick Foster and Tony Allen, revealing how two unassuming Irish lads found themselves touring the world and making it into the record books. Full of nostalgic detail about growing up in rural Ireland in the 1950s and 60s, the book relives the days of horse-drawn ploughs, tiny village schools, thatched roofs and candlelit cottages – not to mention the craic of the ceilidh dances and fleadhs, that influenced the young Mick and Tony.
The book spans the breadth of their long career together which began in 1975, and includes their unlikely appearance on Top of the Pops alongside Bob Geldof; being feted by Terry Wogan; and the extraordinary moment when they found themselves at the very top of the charts, beating Take That to the number-one slot
