Born in West Ham in 1947, David Essex recalls his childhood living in a hostel for the homeless and his passion for football that led him to play for West Ham United. At the age of 23, David was simultaneously the star of a West End hit musical Godspell, had a number one hit record with Rock On, and was starring in the massive hit film That'll Be the Day. David recounts the "Essex Mania" of the time, and talks candidly about creating the role of Che in Evita, and missing out on Broadway and the film. Then there are the stories of times with Keith Moon, John Lennon, and Richard Burton. This is an honest, funny and insightful account of his amazing life.
