Amy Search to re­lease au­to­bi­og­ra­phy at 60

New Straits Times - - Entertainment -

THE num­ber 60 may be a statis­tic to many of us, but for Suhaimi Ab­dul Rah­man, or Amy of Search, who turns the big

“six-oh” next year, it is the right time for him to re­flect on life, and write his au­to­bi­og­ra­phy.

The book will de­tail his in­spir­ing jour­ney from a kam­pung boy to a rock leg­end. “I’ve al­ways wanted to write about my ex­pe­ri­ences as a singer, and give my opin­ion on the lo­cal mu­sic scene as best as I can,” Amy told the New Straits Times re­cently. “My jour­ney into rock mu­sic has seen me ‘nav­i­gate’ many cha­las lenges, es­pe­cially a team play Search, er in my band, and in giv per­for­mances ing fans that they would en­joy and cher­ish,” he said. Amy turns 60 on July 28 next year, and his wife, Nour­ish Has­san, and chil­dren have en­cour aged him to come up with his au­to­bi­og­ra­phy to mark the spe­cial oc­ca­sion. “It’ll be my labour of love and a big ‘thank you’ to my loved ones, who have al­ways been with me, and my loyal fans. “While this au­to­bi­og­ra­phy will give fans an in­ter­est­ing read, I hope they will also learn im­por­tant life’s lessons from it , such as per­se­ver­ance and hold­ing on to one’s dream,” said Amy, who be­came Search’s lead vo­cal­ist re­plac­ing Zainal Rampa in 1981.

While mu­sic has al­ways been Amy’s first love, the time has also come for him to ven­ture into other fields of in­ter­est.

The rocker is par­tic­i­pat­ing in the Asia Is­lamic Fash­ion Week (AIFW), which takes place at 3pm daily from March 30 to April 2 at the Kuala Lumpur Con­ven­tion Cen­tre.

Amy’s com­pany, Gen­eral Prod­ucts by Amy Search, will pro­mote seven de­signs of men’s Is­lamic fash­ion on the run­way.

It is his in­au­gu­ral par­tic­i­pa­tion in the show and Asia’s first Is­lamic fash­ion week to be held in Kuala Lumpur. More than 10,000 vis­i­tors, 180 ex­hibitors, 100 de­sign­ers and 100 in­ter­na­tional trade buy­ers are ex­pected to be at AIFW.

On an­other note, Amy said he and Search would not be or­gan­is­ing a sep­a­rate char­ity con­cert in aid of its drum­mer, Yazit Ah­mad, who has a kid­ney ail­ment, since Is­tana Bu­daya and Awie En­ter­tain­ment were al­ready do­ing so via Kon­sert Wings Dan Su­per­friends, to be held at Is­tana Bu­daya from April 6 to 9.

He said Search had done its part hold­ing con­certs in aid of Yazit in the past, and it was “not the right time” to hold a new con­cert now.

“The up­com­ing con­cert at Is­tana Bu­daya has our sup­port.

“We hope it will ben­e­fit as many needy artistes as pos­si­ble.”
