"Outside of work my life was mainly rock 'n' roll and not in a cliched way, in a genuine way." Johnny Cigarini: Confessions of a King's Road Cowboy is an autobiographical account told from the perspective of a sharp young producer who kicked back with celebrity acquaintances after hours of working in the ambitious and daring world of advertising. Being surrounded by fame and glory during the 70s meant the company Cigarini worked for was at its most succesful - and King's Road became their local playground. This story of luck, chance and heartache shows how the entertainment culture allowed Cigarini to reach the top of his game. Against a backdrop of the 60s sexual liberation, we learn of the real man, Johnny; he was not always a Ferrari-driving trendsetter with long hair, picking up models on the King's Road, partying with Pink Floyd and dating Patti D'Arbanville, but he was once 'Little Johnny', an orphan and the victim of child sex abuse. Exposed to a silent and sinister world of establishment paedophile rings, John's story is certainly one of tragedy and introspection as he picks up the pieces of a lost life. From Italy to England, Africa, America, and back to Italy, Cigarini's nomadic lifestyle became the catalyst to his emotional rollercoaster. He experienced loneliness, separation, break-ups and breakthroughs. His memoirs reach back in time to a war that separated him from his sisters and exposes the revolutionary changes that developed Britain during this era. This mesmerising account offers an insight to the intimate secrets of life in the heart of Britain's pop culture and will appeal primarily to the generation who grew up in the swinging 70s and early 80s. This book may also be of interest to individuals who have worked in production and the advertising sector.
