Word In Your Attic 56 (audio version) – Will Birch: “Keith Moon wrecked my drum kit” plus a “tie swap”with Billy Joel

Author, producer and former Kursaal Flyers/Records drummer Will Birch piles though his monumental archive and remembers Presley movies with his Mum, the Crickets on the “soup in a basket circuit”, getting the Beatles’ autographs, Cream’s farewell at the Albert Hall, Barney Bubbles, Pete Frame, Lonnie Donegan 78s, backing Rachel Sweet, the ’60s rock press and getting 100 guineas for his first song (sample lyric: “we grow our hair and we don’t care”). The man who kept everything and knows the value of all of it: fascinating.
