Well, in the light of recent news stories I thought it was about time to re-visit this book and hear from the man himself all about what he was upto whilst going 'from rags to riches' as he put it. It is a remarkable yarn all about him growing up in Leeds before going down t'pit to work with miners. (careful spelling needed there) after which he became a wrestler which involved a lot of grabbing hold of people and grunting and sweating, all skills he would certainly need in later life. It was interesting to hear of his love of fine cigars. Made me think of Bill Clinton for some reason. Moving on, he got involved in the night club scene in the north of England, where he got the chance to work with such esteemed characters as Gary Glitter, bofore betting his big break on the radio, which fortunately for us meant confining him to a ship out at sea. We all heaved a breath of relief that day. Then on 30th September 1967, the launch of Radio 1 saw the cigar chomping sex case embracing national stardom, together with any teenagers he could manage to corner. Oddly, the book misses this part out. All in all, a fascinating work of fiction as told by the repugnant self obsessed paedophile in his own words. Hows about that then?
