"People keep telling me I should write a
book about my
experiences in being involved in music for over 35 years. Well, it
wouldn’t be a sensationalist type book because I’ve
run for cover from most things like that, no big stars involved just
cult figures or trivial type stuff. Therefore it is never gonna make
the best seller list but there are a lot of interesting anecdotes, a
bit of seminal history and a sense of the times and places I hope to be
able to impart."
"I'm going to work my way through from the time of being a teenage performer, eventually becoming a 'star', if you like, on a project none of my own doing (the musical Hair) and finding it not fulfilling in any way. A lesson here for the instant "Popstars" maybe. Then through an exciting period of starting a business and the various permutations that took over ten plus years (a record company/management/tour promoter/etc, etc) right up to today where I’m back to writing songs and articles and feel creatively speaking, the most fulfilled ever, if not the most monetarily rewarded. Anyway here is part one to set the scene."
