The ups and downs, the triumphs and tragedies, Joe Longthorne doesn't hold anything back. In the golden days of Joe's career, he was one of television's highest paid performers, attracting audiences of more than 12 million courtesy of his amazing voice and impressions of singers such as Shirley Bassey, Tom Jones, and Frank Sinatra. He has countless gold and platinum albums to his name, has appeared on the Royal Variety Show, and sells out iconic venues the world over, including the Palladium, Royal Albert Hall, Sydney Opera House, and Drury Lane Chicago. However, tragedy and trauma have haunted the Hull-born singer, and he tells his life story in his own words in this wonderful book. From his childhood in the traveling community and singing on the streets for money to the colorful rock and roll lifestyle of sex, drugs, bankruptcy, court appearances, and the bizarre, hilarious stories which worldwide touring produces. But Joe's toughest times have been found in his repeated battles with cancer, having fought off the illness multiple times over the last three decades, most recently in the summer of 2014 when Joe beat throat cancer—and began singing again hours after his life-saving operation! This is the true story of one of Britain's most iconic entertainers, a man who has never flinched from doing what he was born for—performing. In a book for which critics and fans have been united in praise, Joe Longthorne lays bare his incredible life in this, his official autobiography.
