Re-live the heady days of the pop-tastic seventies as he recalls all-conquering Top of the Pops appearances, endless world tours, epoch defining anthems, thespian triumphs, and glue-ing some mirrors onto a top hat to change the face of fashion forever. From his early days on the West Midlands beat scene, including a stint as a roadie for Robert Plant, Nod charts his rise from shouty skinhead stomper to international pop-star.
Coaxing the anecdotal nuggets from the great man will be his close friend, confidante and personal dresser Mark Radcliffe. With a career spanning five decades the still astonishingly youthful Boltonion has written four books, released six albums, presented many TV programmes, most notably the BBC’s coverage of the Glastonbury Festival, and has presented shows on BBC Radios 1,2,3,4,5,6 and 7. He remains optimistic of a call from 1xtra and the Asian Network so he’ll have ‘got the set’.
