Headline Review, 2008, Hardback in dust wrapper.
Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs;
From the cover: It was a few bars of Heartbreak Hotel, heard briefly through the open window of a car, that captured his imagination. The young Cliff Richard and his friends had never heard music like it. They went home and sat by their radios, desperate to find out whose voice they had found so exciting. Once he discovered Elvis Presley, Cliff knew what he wanted to do with his life and went for it with single-minded determination.
He isnt the only council house kid to make it in rock n roll, but he is the only one to have outsold every other artist in the UK including Elvis and the Beatles. Hes the only one whos had a number one hit single in every decade and who, fifty years later, is still recording, still touring and still filling arenas the world over.
This is his story, told by him. A committed Christian, knighted by the Queen for his charity work, it is not the usual rock stars tale of drugs, sex and degradation. Its a fascinating story of a man who has broken all the rules, and a unique insight into one of the most iconic figures of our time.
