Last week Calvin Harris was involved in a serious car crash while on his way to catch a flight to Las vegas for an upcoming performance.
A New Calvin Harris Biography, ‘The $100 Million DJ,’ is Coming Soon
While Calvin Harris is reportedly dance music’s highest-earner, he remains a relatively enigmatic figure. The producer rarely does press any more (unless turning up in the pages of gossip magazines counts), instead focusing his attention on a lucrative Vegas residency, modeling for Armani and making hits.
So how did the goofy-looking guy who broke out with “Acceptable In The 80s” become such a big deal? The new biography, Calvin Harris: The $100 Million DJ, will attempt to answer that question, tracking its subject’s journey from “stacking shelves in his local supermarket” to stacking up #1 singles.
The book is written by veteran journalist Douglas Wight, a former reporter for The Sun newspaper. Wight’s previous books include a biography of Leonardo DiCaprio, first published in 2012. It’s unclear how involved Harris has been in providing first-hand accounts for The $100 Million DJ.
As the gushing blurb goes, “This is the astonishing story of Calvin Harris’s journey from struggling musician to international star, revealing what makes him tick, why he has the Midas touch, how he went from being a lanky kid with little self-confidence to a modelling deal with Armani and how he became a global megastar.” You can preorder the book now on Amazon ahead of its October 21, 2015 release.
