James Young was born in Oldham. He has tried his hand at a number of careers, including working in a cotton mill and as a car park attendant. In the early 80s he abandoned a promising academic future at Oxford to become Nico's piano player, after which he wrote his first book - a biographical account of the eight years he spent with the doomed Warhol chanteuse. Moscow Mule is his second book.
