Here is a new scrapbook that contains a wonderful variety of items and incidents that have meant something special to me throughout this varied and amazing life that I am still enjoying to the full. Please share with me these wonderful memories.”

James Perkins, Managing Director of Concert Live says: “We are absolutely thrilled to be working with Bill on this exciting project. After the incredible success of 'Mr Rotten's Scrapbook' in 2010, we wanted to ensure we didn't try to simply replicate that success and rush into more book projects for the sake of it, but rather when they felt right. Working with Bill is a pleasure and we are confident this is going to be an absolutely cracking book, and something we and the fans will be very proud of for years to come.”
