Reg and Dorothy Calvert fall in love and marry when they are 18, in 1946. With little money, in postwar Britain, Reg buys an old bus and converts it into a caravan. They travel from Huddersfield to Southampton and live in an apple orchard until they can afford to buy a house. Reg tries many ways to earn a living, including making popcorn. When he first hears Bill Haley's 'Rock Around the Clock' he has an ambition. To bring Rock 'n' Roll to England.
'CLIFTON HALL' School of Rock 'n' Roll. (Book Two of Trilogy.) Available as E Book approx £2.50 from Amazon Kindle, but can be downloaded to any device with free app. http://www.amazon.co.uk
A fast moving story, based on real life and actual events. Behind the fun, laughter, glitz and glamour, lies a powerful love story, poignant and sometimes heart breakingly sad.
In 1961, The Calvert family moved from Southampton to Clifton Hall near Rugby. With them came an entourage of young musicians and singers. It did not take long for the inhabitants of Clifton-upon-Dunsmore to realise there were strange 'goings on' at the Hall. Rumour and gossip were rife. Who were these bohemian young men appearing in their village? What were they doing and what was going on at the Hall? Local and national press were intrigued by this unusual household and soon, photographers and news reporters were requesting visits.
This book is not a nostalgic tale of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, although they are all contained within these pages. In the early 1960's, Reg and Dorothy were at the heart of the music business and encouraged and mentored young musicians and singers. Many famous and not so famous stars worked for them, including the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.
