It's Chris Jagger's turn to lift the lid on one of the most colourful and exotic periods in British cultural history as he unrolls an insider's tale of growing up among the bombsites and ration books of post-war Dartford, weaving through the glittery underground of late 1960s countercultural London, spending months in India before most trod that path, the highs and lows of acting and film work, and pursuing his own unique musical adventures that have resulted in a number of albums and gigs across the world.

Ultimately though it's the beguiling story of a close-knit family and deep brotherly ties, which endure from both sides of the spectrum.

About Chris Jagger

Chris Jagger has been busy, as, it seems, he always is. There's been the song writing: adding to the pile of 100+ compositions he's created, recorded and had published over the years and heard on the dozen albums he's released, some solo, some with his band Atcha! And there's been the small scale animal husbandry: he and his wife, Kari-Ann keep chickens and sheep at the farmhouse near Glastonbury they've called home for 20 years.

Chris spent lockdown completing his long-in-the-works memoir and autobiography Talking To Myself. It's a rich, detailed, hilarious, gossipy tale that digs deep into he and his older brother Mick's upbringing in Dartford, Kent, and plots the siblings' emergence into adulthood and shared lifelong appreciation for the blues. It also chronicles the younger Jagger's musical adventures from the Seventies onwards with entertaining detours into his travels through Afghanistan to India and his later acting career in theatres across Britain, returning to music in the mid-nineties when he also began writing stories for newspapers and journals. "It's a different proposition writing a long book and creating your own style, so I hope readers will enjoy the trip too" he adds.
