Title: Jumpin Jack Flash: David Livitnoff and the Rock and Roll Underworld
Post by: warren on April 12, 2016, 02:13:22 PM
I'm about halfway through this new biography by Kieron Pim and enjoying.    It's very thorough and gives a great insight into Soho clubland, Chelsea set, gangland world and beyond.     I didn't know anything about Livitnoff before I dived in and I'm still not sure how I'd describe him.     He certainly had fingers in lots of pies and "flitted between the worlds of music, film and crime".   Worth dipping in for the detail alone.

Interesting. Another 'un for my list, thanks Warren.
