Review:

"The author is someone I have known since my teen years, and he has had a long and successful career shepherding flocks of rock-and-roll performers, singers, musicians and ballet dancers through the ordeals of touring, here in the UK and overseas. Hearing that he had a book coming out, I knew that I would have to buy it, of course - but, equally of course, I knew that you buy your friends' books out of a desire to encourage and support them, but frankly it sometimes turns out to be a waste of money. In this case, I could not have been more wrong! Malcolm Cook has created a really 'good read' that kept me turning the pages, sometimes laughing aloud at the antics of the artistes and the reactions of various Jacks-in-Office - always good for a chuckle, that lot! It certainly brought back a lot of memories for me." "Over my thirty plus years of broadcasting I've had the pleasure and privilege in may cases of talking and meeting some of the greats from the world of music. Many of the interviews are made available through press contacts, publicists, managers and one of the most important when artists are playing venues up and down the country would be the tour manager. Believe it or not, but his job is one of the most demanding you could ever come across. One of the best tour managers I've ever worked with is Malcolm Cook. (This is) a no punches pulled account of a lifetime spent travelling with some of the great artists of our time and a book that will 'entertain' you from start to finish. Not surprisingly he also gets a few things off his chest as to the 'good to work with' and as he describes them the 'pain in the butt' artists. Worth every penny of its GBP18.99 price tag." "A regular contributor to The Beat in the past, Malcolm Cook often linked current events with recollections from his life as tour manager to the biggest names in pop music, always promising/threatening to publish his complete memoirs one day. That day has now arrived and 'Cook's Tours' details a fascinating journey from the early 60s into the New Millennium, looking behind the scenes on package tours, I had enjoyed from the front stalls. Working with a variety of artists, from Eden Kane and Gerry & The Pacemakers, to Motown's premier acts, Gene Pitney, Glen Campbell, and even Rudolph Nureyev, Cook experienced life at all levels, from dodgy B&Bs, roadside cafes, and uninsured bangers to luxury limousines, five-star hotels and restaurants worldwide. Every act has a different tale to tell, and each one is told in a manner that conveys the pleasure he derived from his life. Each chapter details an artist, or genre, often confirming the likeable character behind the mike was genuine, but also features a number who were very different. Interspersed throughout the memories, Cook recalls many of the sexual encounters he experienced along the way, and other perks of the job! A thoroughly enjoyable read, exactly how I imagined the finished publication would be. Well done, Malcolm!" - Jim Stewart. Beat Magazine, Feb 2012 Remember all the hoo-ha in the papers back in the Sixties when pop star PJ Proby split his trousers on stage? Malcolm Cook does. He was watching from the side of the stage. What happened when a former member of Telstar group The Tornados did his trademark leap on to a grand piano ... only to discover that the lid had been removed? Malcolm can tell you. Or rather, you can find all the answers in Cook's Tours, Malcolm's newly-published and often hilarious book of memoirs of his 44 years in the music and entertainment business. - Eastern Daily Press March 2012 I urge you to read this book not only to thoroughly enjoy, but to be envious of his amazing life with the stars, the super-stars and those who imagine they really should be stars, and to totally admire his literary skill in telling us all about it... It really is a gem of a read! - Jim Kennedy Encore magazine April 2012 "This enthralling read is decorated with many photos & has seperate indexes for names, song titles & films/shows. It is therefore easy to find the brief mention of a Marvin, Welch & Farrar tour with the Supremes & Labi Siffre, & the final Jet Harris & Tony Meehan tour on a bill with Gerry & the Pacemakers & Del Shannon. This compartmentalisation means that it is very easy to read in small bites of a chapter or two at a time" - Alan Taylor, Pipeline Instrumental Review Spring 2012
