Readers might like to know of a book just out with some links to John Barry. ‘The Session Man - the story of Bobby Graham’, is a fascinating and extremely frank account of the life and times of drummer Bobby Graham, who was one of Barry’s first signings to Ember Records and who led the John Barry Seven after Vic Flick departed for session work.
Graham soon followed Flick into session work and the pair worked on countless pop hits of the sixties, often doing the work on sessions that the group members themselves were not good enough to perform. Indeed, Bobby was Dave Clark on all the Dave Clark 5 hits - a fact which Clark sought to conceal for many years!
Thoroughly recommended and very reasonably priced, too, at £8.99 pounds including postage (to the UK).
You can order the book direct from the publishers via a link from Bob’s web-site - do it now and it might even arrive in time for Christmas!!
