It was an album about his obsession with music, his love for his wife and family, and his love of life itself. It is called ‘Beautiful Life’ for a very good reason. “It has been a beautiful life,” says Rick. “Maybe it didn’t start out that way. There’s been tough times. But I’ve got so much to be thankful for. How many people get a chance to live out their dreams, not just once, but twice?”
Rick Astley’s story is an extraordinary music business tale. He was a lonely boy from a broken home in a small town whose only escape route was singing. “Music saved my life, really,” he says.
“My mum and dad had a horrible break up when I was very young. It was quite traumatic, if I’m honest. Singing got me out of the house, it got me into a choir, then it got me into a band and finally got me out into the world. It’s put me in so many amazing places it’s ridiculous, just because as a kid I found I had a voice.”
