Product description

"Grumpy Old Rock Star" is a collection of never-before-told stories from his amazing life. From touring in a white van in the early sixties; playing keyboards on David Bowie's "Space Oddity" (no really); to buying an American football team with some Americans with very Italian surnames; his drinking days - beer in copious amounts and port and brandy in pint glasses , (three of those a day) oh yes, plus a few bottles of wine; throwing Salvador Dali offstage because he was spoiling his piano solo; the truth behind the curry on stage episode and how he ended up with the earth from around Che Guevara's body in his shed, given to him by his old friend and fan Fidel Castro. Curl up by the fire with a "Grumpy Old Rockstar" and your nearest and dearest. We defy you not to laugh.
