Travelling tinker man & other rhymes by David Essex( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Poems from the heart by a man who has lived - and loved - life to the full. In the 70s he was a huge pop star, with Number 1 hits like 'Rock On' and 'Hold Me Close'. In the 80s and 90s he became a star of the stage with lead roles in GODSPELL and MUTINY! Most recently he became a Number 1 hardcover bestseller with his autobiography, OVER THE MOON. Now comes a wonderful collection of his poetry and lyrics. Here are nostalgic poems recalling his family's traveller roots, such as 'Travelling Tinker Man', and 'Fairground Attraction', verses filled with memories of his warm and loving boyhood, like 'Beano Day', 'Dad' and 'Upton Park' - and poetry reliving the highs and lows of fame, such as 'Celebrity' and 'Like Moths to a Flame'

War of the worlds: It began with odd atmospheric disturbances taking place on Mars, followed by the arrival of Martians just outside of London. At first the Martians seemed laughable, hardly able to move in Earth's comparatively heavy gravity -- even enough to raise themselves out of the pit created when their spaceship landed. But soon death machines 100-feet tall rise up from the pit and begin laying waste to the surrounding land. As England's military suffers defeat after defeat, London is evacuated and all hope seems lost as it becomes clear that the Martians are not conquering humans, but corralling them as food
A charmed life : the autobiography of David Essex by David Essex( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""I was born on 23 July 1947, yellow with jaundice and delivered by forceps. Maybe my reluctance to enter the world was a premonition of the incredible adventure my life would be ... "" "Cut to 26 years later - "At the record shop signings I did to promote the single, 'Essex Mania' was taking hold, we stopped the traffic in Bond Street and lay besieged in Lewisham High Street."" "By 1973, David Essex was starring in the number one London stage show Godspell, had the number one movie and soundtrack album with That'll Be the Day, and topped it all off by writing and recording his first number one single, the classic 'Rock On'. Months later, he was number one in the USA, having sold over twelve million copies worldwide." "It was all a far cry from his early days, rooted in poverty in East London, where he and his mother were forced to live in a workhouse while his father struggled to find them the money for a home of their own. Here, in his autobiography, David Essex recalls both the fun and the frustration of those early days, his time hop-picking with his gypsy relatives in Kent, his early love of football and his desire to be a professional player. And how all that changed when he bought his first drum kit and started playing with local blues and rock 'n' roll bands."--Jacket
