Ian Whitcomb, One Hit Wonder British Invader of the 1960s and teen heart-throb, never went home. Instead he tried to settle down in Los Angeles County where, over the years, he produced a Grammy-winning CD, wrote songs for movies, auditioned for butler roles in TV commercials, had and lost dogs, married successfully, and continued to play his ukulele as the ship went down. Now the entire soap opera (1996--2008), roped together in hard copy with appropriate photos, can be relished as a roller coaster of self-pity, vaunting and failed ambition, jealousy, bathos and pathos, culminating in a Big Dream. In other words, this is a comedy book. Mainline Show Biz may have passed Whitcomb by but here in these precious pages he creates his own world of heroes and villains with himself as King in order to get sweet revenge through the twisted lingo of his India rubber sword.

    Some other author comments about Ian's Book: "When reading my old friend (forever young) Ian Whitcomb's tales of Hollywood and beyond, I am never sure what is true and what is Ian's version of same, but it doesn't matter. He always conducts you on a bizarre and jolly and entertaining ride." Joseph Wambaugh, author of "The New Centurions", "The Onion Field", "Hollywood Station", etc. "Ian is one of the last of the proper English gentlemen abroad, doffing his hat at the best of Los Angeles and poking his umbrella at what irritates or annoys him." William Kay, columnist for the London Sunday Times. "He is the Christopher Isherwood of the rock 'n' roll generation, chronicling with humor and offbeat insight his travails and unguided tours among the exotic fauna of Southern California." Jim Dawson, author of "Who Cut The Cheese?", a history of farting. "I intend to read this book." Buck Henry, actor and author....
