Kingmaker Publishing is delighted to announce the publication of an autobiography by legendary Marillion keyboardist Mark Kelly. Marillion, Misadventures & Marathons: The Life & Times Of Mad Jack will be published on 20th January 2022.

“Much like finding yourself on the ninth storey window ledge of a Luxembourg hotel as the wind whips around you, as Mark Kelly once did, it’s not unusual to question your life choices sometimes.”

Marillion’s Mark Kelly has had six decades to consider a life less ordinary and the decisions he made that took him there. From a dirt poor early childhood in Ireland to some of the biggest stages around the world, Kelly’s journey has described an arc that any fiction writer might blanch at. The departure from the band of their singer at the height of their powers; reinventing the music industry wheel by pioneering crowdfunding to help his band survive; and going from club shows to arenas and almost all the way back again.

Written during 2021, Kelly’s autobiography charts the remarkable rise and fall and rise of one of rock music’s most enduring bands and the keyboard player at the heart of that journey.

Marillion, Misadventures & Marathons: The Life & Times Of Mad Jack will be published as a 264 page hardback, plus 48 pages of photographs documenting Kelly’s life and career, including some photography commissioned exclusively for the book.

“Mark Kelly deserves so much career credit. An incredibly gifted musician and composer, he has now written a book that is compelling reading. It’s rare to find such honesty in a book like this and undoubtedly it was written from the heart.” RICK WAKEMAN
