'There's a difference between belief and ego ..you've got to have a little bit of ego in this game...I think I've proved I'm no flash in the pan; I have a career and I can sell a tour ... I've come so far, and yet there's so far still to travel.'
Shannon Noll captured the hearts of music fans around Australia and overseas with his raw, gifted rock voice. His first album 'That's What I'm Talking About' debuted in the Australian chart at Number One and included the smash-hit 'What About Me'. He repeated that feat with his second album, 'Lift' and hit single, 'Shine'.
Shannon Noll: So Far tells the whole story... brother, son, husband, father... the journey from his early days on the family farm near Condobolin and as an unknown singer to one of Australia's premier recording and performing artists. This book also explores the pain the Noll family suffered with the loss of their father, Neil, Shannon's subsequent depression and drug usage and the battles he waged against his critics and the music industry. Full of showbiz anecdotes and country philosophy, the book also displays Shannon's private side... the powerful bond he built with his brothers, his relationship with and marriage to Rochelle, the mother of his three young children.
