Description - Cliff by Tim Ewbank

In 1957 a boy named Harry Webb delivered a startling version of Elvis Presley s Heartbreak Hotel in a youth club in Cheshunt. 50 years on, Cliff Richard, the star Harry Webb became, has outsold both The Beatles and Elvis in total British single sales. The BBC s 100 Greatest Britons placed him at No. 56, and in 1995 he became the first rock star to be knighted. Yet, despite his huge public persona, the man himself remains a reserved and private figure. Tim Ewbank and Stafford Hildred s revealing biography, marking 50 years of music from the first British pop star, gives a revealing insight into the life of this British icon. Through interviews with fellow musicians, co-stars, directors and Cliff himself it reveals the man behind the celebrity. Unflinching in its portrayal of one of Britain s most loved icons, this biography examines Cliff s musical ascendance as well as the women in his life, his religion, his determination to succeed and his lasting regret that he has never broke America.
