Jack Hylton: singer, pianist, composer, conductor, band leader, theatrical agent, impresario, television executive, bon viveur. He never forgot his Boltonian roots, he preferred the dog track to the boardroom, he preferred tripe and onions to caviar. He became immensely successful, immensely wealthy and he was loved by millions. He had a voracious appetite for women and a voracious appetite for spending, living every day as if it were his last. This book tells the fascinating journey of Jack Hylton from the industrial north of England in the 1890s, to the height of glamour and sophistication in London's West End in the 1960s. The book also contains a complete UK Hylton discography.
