Product Description

Product Description

Written from the memories of one of the last great Rock 'n' Roll promoters of our time, this book is the doorway to a host of amazing revelations. From national television stars who started out as strippers, to the true highs and lows in the lives of the greatest music icons in history such as Dionne Warwick, Stevie Wonder and The who. Alan Goldsmith has seen and pretty much done it all; his time as a promoter gave him the inside scoop on hundreds of stories, including never before revealed Nazi secrets as told to him by one of Hitler's greatest fighter pilots, and the unmentioned dark secrets of the Suffolk town hall. This book sets the record straight and spills the beans through an amusing and fascinating recollection of events that have occurred throughout Alan's life, which has been fast paced, electric and at times can only be described as truly unbelievable. But one thing that's certain is that every story in this book is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, although once you start reading you may struggle to believe it!

Loved reading this book, very entertaining and funny, I laughed out loud many times, lots of interesting stories about the rock n roll life style in the 50's and 60's - I would highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Read 29 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
A fantastic and detailed account of the pop scene of yesteryear giving lots of untold knowledge of famous groups that were not famous then. Told with a good deal of humour, it is an account of one man's journey from his humble beginnings to the success story of today. Intriguing items also of the Nazi war hero Gallan and his accounts of his meetings with Hitler. Lots of topless strippers in there too! Just the book to read by the fireside with a 60's LP playing in the background.
