6th Impression. [First Edition: Same Year] Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “By 1973, David Essex was starring in the number one London stage show Godspell, had the number one movie and soundtrack album with That’ll Be the Day, and topped it all off by writing and recording his first number one single, the classic ‘Rock On’. Months later, he was number one in the USA, having sold over twelve million copies worldwide. It was all a far cry from his early days, rooted in poverty in East London, where he and his mother were forced to live in a workhouse while his father struggled to find them the money for a home of their own. Here, in his heart-warming autobiography, David Essex recalls both the fun and the frustration of those early days, his time hop-picking with his gypsy relatives in Kent, his early love of football and his desire to be a professional player. And how all that changed when he bought his first drum kit and started playing with local blues and rock ‘n’ roll bands.”
