The Writers:

David P Bailey

Like The Beatles, Eric Clapton, Brian May and many others, David P Bailey's musical journey started with an introduction to guitar via Bert Weedon's Play In A Day. His music has since filled the airwaves; he has toured with Glen Campbell, Charlie Pride and Billie Jo Spears; he has composed for Clarence 'Frogman' Henry; has performed at hundreds of venues, from the Cavern to the London Palladium, and has gone down in history as the last man to play piano for Gene Vincent before the singer's tragic death. As well as being an accomplished performer, David has a gift for song-writing - in particular for classic ballads - and for lyrical excellence. For fourteen years he played keyboards for the highly rated band Quill, who have become a regular feature of the theatre-scene in the midlands.

George Porter

As a publisher George Porter has sold well over a million records, and has produced 16 albums and 30 singles. Born in Liverpool, he grew up in the era of Beatlemania and rock and roll. Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis were his idols. He entered the music industry in 1970, starting in Chappells and two years later becoming general manager of the UK office of E H Morris, publishers of some of the greatest musical shows - Mame, Hello Dolly, Guys and Dolls, Grease - and many of the major MOR songs of the era. During his tenure Morris had a dozen hit singles in the charts. Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey were a major influence on his decision to 'go it alone', despite being offered the opportunity by Lee Eastman to move to the newly formed McCartney Music. He became an independent publisher/ producer and was instrumental in the release of the only single from one of the original London cast of Grease. One of his first signings was David P Bailey, with whom he has now collaborated on this musical. George's writing credentials include a play, Black Antigone, and a memoir, I Came Out Sideways.
