The Great Old Rock 'n' Roll Swindle? is exactly that, old! But it happened again...Enter stage left our hero, our raconteur and for the first time ever, the real truth about the internal workings of the music industry are laid bare.
Music manager Gary Raymond took 3 unsigned lads from Essex and hatched a plan that propelled them into the prestigious top 40 chart and made music chart history.A world of blagging, bragging, bullshit and bust-ups, where betrayal and the use of every trick in the proverbial book to get noticed were all part of rocking a very stormy boat, showing that fact really is stranger than fiction.
Humorous, scandalous and with all guns blazing, this is the ultimate insider story.
You have to be a certain type of person to entertain the music industry and along with a very curious upbringing; nearly being kidnapped, surviving an unfortunate incident in a kebab shop and living in a zoo, you will see why it was the perfect match of devilish manager and mischievous band.
