Then, at the northern Harrow Road end where it crosses the Grand Union Canal it loses some of its character and you could be in almost any north London suburb. London's first independent music recording studio, Lansdowne is probably best-known for its jazz recordings, many of them produced by Denis Preston himself, often assisted by engineer Joe Meek.
But Preston's biggest-selling artist by far during the 70s was Roger Whittaker, the whistling folk singer. The studio had a huge record library, consisting of material presumably recorded there, and Carol would sometimes bring samples home.
Murder Most Foul. Ladbroke Grove tube station was just a two-minute walk from Rillington Place, the short dead-end street which was scene of the grisly John Christie multiple murders of the 40s and 50s. In the grim tale was made into a movie starring Richard Attenborough as the thoroughly creepy Christie and John Hurt as Timothy Evans who was wrongly hanged for the crimes. The story held a macabre fascination for us, with huge local interest.
The street and the house at number 10 were still standing when we moved into the area but by this time it was fenced off at one end and the houses were boarded up ready for demolition. Around or '74 the area was cleared and flats were built on the site. A memorial garden was established on the space where number 10 once stood. Ruston Close may have disappeared but the name lives on with Ruston Mews which sits today within the triangle of St.
Marks Road, Lancaster Road and the Westway. With considerable help from girlfriend Carol, who took care of admin, the shop continued to tick along, making a living but not exactly setting the world on fire. It seemed like the perfect opportunity to put my strategy into action.
Coincidentally, what may have been the first-ever David Bowie songbook had just been published. Then, right on cue, a slimmed-down version appeared. Titled David Bowie — A Portrait, it was basically the same book with a different cover photo, minus the music notation and featuring just the lyrics to the songs from the Ziggy Stardust and Hunky Dory albums plus a few earlier tunes together with photographs and essays.
At only 36 pages and retailing at just 30p, it seemed perfect. Just as importantly, it was a fully licensed item of the highest quality.
This is what I decided to sell at the Ziggy concert. Though a contact in music publishing I was able to secure several boxes of the Bowie book through the back door, no questions asked, if you get my drift. The first night passed uneventfully and was more of a reconnaissance exercise, if anything. On the second night Carol and I, along with a pal called Dave, turned up at Hammersmith ready for action with our books crammed into canvas shoulder bags of the type newspaper delivery boys used at one time.
I guess they call them tote bags today. If you watch the opening scenes of the D. Business was disappointingly slow at first and Carol proved surplus to requirements. Imagine that. You could do that kind of thing in those days. So, dressed in her best frock, Carol went inside to watch Bowie while Dave and I retired to a nearby pub for an hour or so. The encore was well underway when we returned to the Odeon, suitably refreshed, to find Album) already beginning to drift out.
Then, out of nowhere, an apparition appeared and swept through the double doors onto the pavement, almost colliding with me. Dressed entirely in white with an ankle-length coat, a chiffon scarf and a beret worn at a coquettish angle, it was Barbra Streisand making an early getaway to avoid the crowds. Here was a clear indication of how famous David Bowie was becoming. I stepped aside to let Barbra pass, our eyes met momentarily and I swear I was close enough to get a whiff of her expensive perfume.
The books began to sell like hot cakes with some fans buying several copies. But other than that, the night had been a resounding success and I resolved to do it all again. In mid Carol and I bought a dog. It was a cute Old English Sheepdog puppy with a pedigree as long as your arm, but we just called her Rosie. But we were young and foolish and the endless grooming aside boy, was there a lot of groomingthe puppy was a delight and grew up to be a magnificent specimen and a fine example of the breed.
As Bonfire Night approached each year, we grew increasingly anxious and took every precaution to keep her safely indoors as much as possible. We sometimes even got sedatives from the vet to calm her down in the weeks leading to November 5 th.
As the car began to move, Lemmy for it was he wound the window down and with an evil laugh threw out a lighted firework. Before I was able to grab her collar Rosie took off across busy Ladbroke Grove, causing cars, trucks, taxis and buses to brake heavily and take evasive action.
Tyres squealed, horns honked and drivers yelled abuse as the dog miraculously made it to the other side in one piece. If Rosie had been a cat, I expect she had just used up eight of her nine lives in one go. I then had to risk life and limb by running after her through the traffic in similar fashion in case she decided to double back across the road.
It was a downright bastard trick and the act of an irresponsible speed freak, but I had absolutely no one to blame but myself. The dog really should have been on a lead, and it was a salutary lesson. Thankfully Rosie lived to fight on for another decade or so, finally shuffling off to doggie heaven in Carol and I had been together six years, since we were 19, but in our relationship collapsed. It was a sad, tearful parting, with most of the tears coming from me.
It was probably my total lack of ambition that brought about the split. That and a few other things, such as an obsession with guitars and records which occupied my every waking minute and accounted for most of our cash.
So, off she went back to Sheffield leaving me holding the baby. But life as a single man with such an attention-grabbing dog proved to have hitherto hidden compensations. For one thing women found Rosie irresistible. I was approached constantly by people wanting to fuss over her and naturally I milked it for all it was worth. This line became tiresome after a while, but I smiled through gritted teeth, nevertheless. The POW was something a celebrity boozer frequented by actors, musicians, poets and all manner of arty types.
Best of all was the afternoon when Rod Stewart turned up at the Prince of Wales with a party of around 40 people to shoot the inside gatefold sleeve photo of his October LP Smiler.
There they all were, rock stars, assistants, wives and girlfriends, backing musicians, dogs and assorted members of the Stewart and Wood clan, boozily lined up in the back yard of the pub. The story goes that they drank solidly for a few hours, no doubt spending an absolute fortune at the bar, then when Rod was ready to take the picture the pub manager attempted to charge him a fee for the privilege.
Then, one night in the Prince of Wales in lateI met Tania, the girl who would become my wife. I turned around to see a quite stunning Australian Album) making a fuss of Rosie. Imagine that - our first date was a Paul McCartney concert. Start as you mean to go on, as my old mum used to say.
Going Dutch. The Bowie venture had been a triumph, so I tried to repeat the process at subsequent Hammersmith Odeon shows by Elton Album) and Queen, none of which were as nearly as successful as the Ziggy concert, so the idea was put on ice for a while.
