Then, aged 23, he went along to an audition for a new musical called Godspell and won the role (Jesus) that shot him to fame. Within a year he was starring in a smash hit film, That'll Be the Day, and had written and recorded his first number-one single, 'Rock On'. It was the start of Essex Mania, and a long journey of undreamt of adventure.
From Godspell to EastEnders, it's been an amazing life. And here is David's full incredible story - in his own words.

Really enjoyed this book, David Essex has an easy to listen to reading voice which conveys the ups and downs in his life in a conversational and informative manner. It is well written and I would recommend it to his many fans who have followed his varied carreer throughout the years.

Brilliant Until the Last 2 Chapters
What a great, GREAT biography until the end. David , like me you came up the hard way, WestHam through and through. Why, OH , why spend so much time of a great read talking about "East Enders". !!!??
at the end ?? You could have easily continued to give a review on' Coronation Street, Home and Away, Neighbours etc.......etc
Brilliant start........poor finish
