TheMoreThe memoirs of Singer/Songwriter SAMMY KING DID YOU REALLY SELL PENNY ARCADE TO ROY ORBISON FOR A FIVER?... Penny Arcade is MY story. My own account of what it was like growing up in a working class community in post war West Yorkshire. The struggle to survive a life threatening illness in infancy, the disappointment of having ones only ambition in life shattered by an accident that resulted in a two yesr stay in hospital. How music helped to fill the void it le and the awkward journey through an adolescence hampered by disability and sensitivity. This book tells about the pressures of the life on the road, the stars I met and worked with along the way, the pitfalls of trying to burn the candle at both ends, the darkness of a complete mental breakdown, a broken marriage, turning down a shot at the big time in order to bring up a baby daughter alone, whilst still finding time to entertain on the northern club scene. And of course how writing the song Penny Arcade and the historic meeting with the Big O completely changed my life... ...Oh, and you might find a few laughs in there too!
