Description - Grumpy Old Rock Star by Rick Wakeman

Around about September 1948, Mr and Mrs Cyril Wakeman had an early night and sometime later, at Perivale in Middlesex, Mrs Wakeman produced a bonny baby son. They named him Richard, but he quickly became known Rick. Rick was likable little fellow who had a talent for the piano and for making trouble. At the age of nine he found inspiration through his first junior school music teacher Miss Dennis who had large breasts and for whom he quickly learned to play Side Saddle the Russ Conway hit. Music became Rick s life. He attended the Royal College of Music, where he studied piano, modern music, clarinet and orchestration before which at the age of seventeen, forming a band called Curdled Milk a very clever homage to Eric Clapton s Cream. Later he joined a popular music group called Yes and became a legend. Much later he became a Grumpy Old Man who appears on Countdown , hosts a hugely popular show on Planet Rock and performs a one man show telling stories about his rather extraordinary life. Which is where this audiobook you are holding comes in. Mr Wakeman is simply one of the great story tellers of our age let s face it he has some fabulous material. It seemed a sham
