Grumpy Old Rock Star : and Other Wondrous Stories, Paperback

Grumpy Old Rock Star : and Other Wondrous Stories Paperback



Around about August 1948, Mr and Mrs Cyril Wakeman had an early night and some time later, at Perivale in Middlesex, Mrs Wakeman produced a bonny baby son.

They named him Richard, but he quickly became known as Rick.

Rick was a likeable little fellow who had a talent for the piano and for making trouble.

Music became Rick's life - he joined a popular music group called Yes and became a legend.

Much later he became a Grumpy Old Man who appears on Countdown, hosts a hugely popular radio show on Planet Rock and performs a one-man show telling stories about his rather extraordinary life.Which is where this book you are holding comes in.

Mr Wakeman is simply one of the great storytellers of our age - let's face it, he has some fabulous material.

It seemed a shame that some of the funniest yarns should not be more widely known.

So he accepted some cash and here we are. Curl up by the fire with a Grumpy Old Rock Star and your nearest and dearest.

We defy you not to want to read it aloud and laugh.
