'Before Cliff Richard and the Shadows, there was nothing worth listening to in British music.' - John Lennon.

Cliff Richard tells his story, in his own words, in his highly anticipated new autobiography.

Achieving a hit in every decade since the 1950s, Cliff Richard stands alone in pop history. Coming of age in 1950s London, he began his music career at Soho's legendary 2i's Cafe, and now he's approaching his 80th birthday with record sales of over 250m and counting.

Cliff Richard was a pioneer, forging the way for British rock 'n' roll with his unique sound. The original British teen idol, his incredible story takes us into the studio of TV's first pop show Oh Boy!, through 40 years of Top of the Pops,and playing live up and down the country and across the world, with a constant backdrop of screaming fans.

Cliff looks back on his humble upbringing, and how he went on to fulfil his wildest dreams by becoming a pop star and even a film star. He talks about finding Christianity, reflects on the ups and downs of life in the public eye, and reveals how the false allegations against him changed his life forever.

He's seen era-defining pop stars come and go, and he's still making new music, with a new project to be released this year. As a teenage Elvis-fan in Cheshunt, this may have seem a distant dream. Here's his story of how he made it all happen.

As a lifelong fan of Cliff I just love this. I already had the hard copy of the book but once I realised it was going to be released as an audio version I just had to have it too. It’s like him sitting in your living room telling you his incredible life story. Sad that 4 years of his life was marred by the disgusting false accusations but other than that Cliff’s story is interesting, funny and emotional in equal measure and is a must for any fan.

Absolutely the best. Story is breathtaking and Sir Cliff’s voice to die for. Wonderful audio and book.

Good listen but !!

Cliff didn’t want a picture with a “fat Elvis” that’s should have been cut from the book. My opinion dropped of you on that one comment. (Not that you care). Maybe Elvis didn’t want a snap with you??
