5.0 out of 5 stars This man changed British music and theatre forever. This book does him justice., 18 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fings Ain't Wot They Used T'Be: The Life of Lionel Bart (Hardcover)
Exceptionally written book from cover to cover following the life of Lionel Bart, the unrecognised father of the British Pop Industry and the British Musical. The world knows "Oliver!" but "Oliver!" is but a small part of Lionel Bart's prolific output through the 1960's. Bart had the midas touch, was mocked by the establishment, adored by artists and exploited by "hangers on". Despite a fall from grace into the worlds of drugs and alcohol, his work remained revered the world over, and he rose again to be a grand master in his own right in his later years. Uplifting, inspiring and accurate biography of a character, more interesting than any literature has managed to create.
