might have been discussed before but has anyone read Jimmy Nail's marvelous Autobiography?
Adult..and liable to cause offence.

Read it several times. Although he is supposedly ' difficult ', I came away thinking what a self effacing, honest, decent bloke.

it depends which book you read , there is a book called Nailed which is a biography which is not complimentary to him , however if you read a Northern Soul which is the Autobiography he comes across much better , he hasnt always had a good press has he ?

I got Northern Soul out of the library a few years back. I liked it.

Pat Roach had a book called "If". I've never read it. There was also a book published after he died called "Auf Wiedersehen Pat".

Oh right. He has the poem If on his headstone and auf wiedersehen Pat on it too. He's buried in my local cemetery
