Jon Jesse Beckenham's life took him along a most unexpected musical journey which ended up with him composing many songs and writing musical adventure stories. And none of this would have occurred had not Jasper Carrott, a well-known English comedian, helped him along his way. He sent him to a restaurant where they gave him a job as a singer and with it he was able to get through his M.Sc course in "Computer Science". He was also able to save enough money to travel to Germany, which ended up with the remarkable musical events which this book describes. Really, it is hard to believe that a man with three university degrees, including two M.Scs, could have ended up becoming a singer and a songwriter and then, to crown it all, a street musician. But that's how it turned out to be. This book tells you how it all began.

Jon Jesse Beckenham

He was born in north west London in 1941, on 11th February. This means that he was born under the star of Aquarius and the way his life developed ended up being very much along this kind of path. But it wasn't evident early on in his life. At school, his main subjects were the scientific ones and he did well, being several times top of the class, and everyone was expecting him to turn out to be a scientist or some kind of engineer. That is, except for himself, for he had no idea what he wanted to be. Until the age of fourteen, there was never any sign of him having any particular artistic talent, let alone that of being a singer.
