David Essex

Within a year he was starring in 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.
