Travelling Tinker Man and Other Rhymes, Hardback

Travelling Tinker Man and Other Rhymes Hardback



Poems from the heart by a man who has lived - and loved - life to the full.

In the 70s he was a huge pop star, with Number 1 hits like 'Rock On' and 'Hold Me Close'.

In the 80s and 90s he became a star of the stage with lead roles in GODSPELL and MUTINY!

Most recently he became a Number 1 hardcover bestseller with his autobiography, OVER THE MOON.

Now comes a wonderful collection of his poetry and lyrics.

Here are nostalgic poems recalling his family's traveller roots, such as 'Travelling Tinker Man', and 'Fairground Attraction', verses filled with memories of his warm and loving boyhood, like 'Beano Day', 'Dad' and 'Upton Park' - and poetry reliving the highs and lows of fame, such as 'Celebrity' and 'Like Moths to a Flame'.

Humour, anger, nostalgia, triumph and tragedy. The joys of being a lover, a husband and a father - here is something for everyone.
