Around about September of 1948, Mr and Mrs Cyril Wakeman had an early night. And some time later, at Perivale in Middlesex, Mrs Wakeman produced a bonny baby son. They named him Richard, but he quickly became known as Rick.

Rick was a likable little fellow who had a talent for the piano (and for making trouble), and music became his life. 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 radio show on Planet Rock and performs a one-man show telling stories about his rather extraordinary life.

That's where this book you comes in. Mr Wakeman is simply one of the great storytellers of our age - let's face it, he has some fabulous material. It seemed a shame that some of the funniest yarns should not be more widely known. So he accepted some cash and here we are.

Curl up by the fire with a Grumpy Old Rockstar and your nearest and dearest. We defy you not to listen and laugh. Download and start listening now!

    " Rick Wakeman writes in a very chatty, easy to follow style. The stories very from the ridiculous to the incredible and every stop in between, but all great fun. A good read on a flight. "

    " Keyboard player Rick Wakeman seems to have a target painted on his back, which makes for some great stories. Lucky for us he also happens to be a great storyteller. "

    " Good insight into all the fun and excess of the prog rock life. Fans only, though. "

    " This is a light, fun book about Rick Wakeman's life on the road as a rock-star. There were some stories that made me laugh a lot. If you're a fan, you should read it! "
