A Rock ‘n’ Roll Nightmare with Showaddywaddy
During the decade that spanned the 1970’s, teddy-boy draped rock & roll band SHOWADDYWADDY had a run of chart success unparalled by any other artist or band.
In 2005 they were still touring, but by then the heady days of teeny-bop hysteria were long gone. Offered a summer run of 33 holiday camp dates, the band took the fast buck and subsequently entered into uncharted territory.
From experiencing ‘life in the fast lane,’ they were about to undergo ‘a breakdown on the hard-shoulder.’
In this bitter-sweet account Lead Singer (and later manager) Dave Bartram candidly recollects the extraordinary occurrences of 10 weeks in the UK’s bucket & spade resorts, which strained every emotion to breaking point!
