My Minds Eye

New Authorised Biography out 18 March 2021

All or Nothing, Simon Spence’s oral history biography, is drawn from over 125 interviews with those who knew Marriott intimately: his wives, children, bandmates and closest friends, managers, record producers, record label bosses and his fellow musicians. Included are scores of people who have never told their story before. From his child star beginnings to his battles with drug addiction and untimely death in a housefire, All or Nothing is a visceral and unflinching account of Steve Marriott’s extraordinary and often troubling life.

Lyrics

My Mind’s Eye

I'm seeking everyday
Looking at the sky
Ever wondering why
I dream my dream's away
And I'm living for today
In my mind's eye

Things are clearer than before
Showing me the way
Asking me to stay
I'll never close the door
To all this things and more
In my mind's eye

Everybody I know
Says I've changed
Laughing behind their hands
I think they're strange

People running everywhere
Running through my life
I couldn't give a care
Because I'd rather see
All that I can see
In my mind's eye

In my mind's eye
In my mind's eye
