As the face of Countdown and Hey Hey It’s Saturday, not to mention a thriving career as a music producer, manager and journalist, national living treasure Ian ‘Molly’ Meldrum has lived an action-packed and, at times, incredible life.So much so, there wasn’t anywhere near enough room to cover it all in his first memoir The Never, Um, Ever Ending Story, co-written by Jeff Jenkins, which largely focused on the Countdown years.Their follow-up Ah Well, Nobody’s Perfect, which he launched this week, is a bright blue and pink solid brick of a tome that fills in many of the gaps, both the highlights and the lows.It’s packed with celebrity close ups, from talking family with Madonna to collapsing on meeting John Lennon, from going way over schedule with Bruce Springsteen, to the time he interviewed the late David Bowie for teen magazine Go-Set and forgot to put on his tape recorder.“A dead loss to the paper, but an afternoon well spent,” he notes in the book.
