Rate this book
Veteran keyboardist and performer Brian C. Chatton—whose 50 plus year career encompasses all incarnations of the so-called "British Invasion" which helped to shape modern popular music—has led a storied life, far different from that of his humble beginnings in Northern England’s Lancashire province.

Chatton is a gifted showman who has garnered the respect of the many music industry giants he has worked with over the years from the time of his first professional gig at the original Cavern Club in 1965, including Jimi Hendrix, Alan Parsons, The Hollies, John Miles, Jon Anderson, Phil Collins, Meat Loaf, BB King, Keith Emerson, Eric Burdon, Joe Cocker etc. He has been involved in just about all aspects of the business, from producer to session player, to seasoned lyricist and consultant. His Gold Record winning record, “I Wanna Be a Cowboy”—a collaboration with Nick Richards and the members of their band — Boys Don’t Cry — sold well over one million copies worldwide and is a perennial hit that is still featured in movies, advertisements and other venues now, some thirty plus years since its initial success.

He is engaging, witty, an excellent storyteller and very humble for someone of his caliber and level of expertise - a quality that has served him well with colleagues, friends and admirers throughout the years. This engaging memoir is the result of being encouraged for many years to finally commit to paper the story of his amazing journey, which is replete with many of the unique “Brianisms” which he has come to be associated with over the years, as well as a healthy dose of characteristic British self-deprecation and understatement.
