Description
MR CONFIDENTIAL By Chris Hutchins ELVIS Presley, Princess Diana, Elton John, the Beatles, Tom Jones, Fergie Duchess of York, Richard Branson – they all figure in this extraordinary book of revelations. Previously untold stories of royals, celebrities and the occasional politician are all relayed in this rich and unrivalled mix of anecdotes by the master. Chris Hutchins is a journalist and author. For more than a decade his Confidential column chronicled the lives of the rich and famous and was featured in three national newspapers as well as being syndicated globally. Think of a moment in popular culture in the last three decades and the chances are that Chris either covered it or got caught up in it. At one time he also ran the UK’s most successful music PR company, shaping the careers and sharing the lives of Tom Jones, the Bee Gees, Eric Clapton and many other international stars. As a fresh-faced young scribbler on the New Musical Express he toured the world with the Beatles and took them to meet Elvis Presley who became his friend. It’s been a rocky road for the boy from a Devon housing estate on whom, according to Sir Richard Branson, the future of his Virgin Atlantic airline once briefly depended. He has had encounters along the way which have often been funny, sometimes sad, with such diverse personalities as Sir Elton John, Rupert Murdoch, Lord ‘Dickie’ Mountbatten, Muhammad Ali, a former British prime minister who got drunk in his house, Rod Steiger, a palace maid and various members of the royal family. His is a truly unique look behind the scenes of international celebrity. Chris Hutchins now more usually writes books about other people’s lives. It was fellow journalist and author Ray Connolly who urged him to write one about his own. As the man who has been in on more celebrity secrets than virtually any other writer, Chris Hutchins’ own story is the most interesting of them all . . .
About the author
Chris Hutchins is an author and investigative journalist who has been behind many of the big stories involving celebrities, royals and politicians for several decades. As a friend of the Beatles (he accompanied them on all their American tours in the 60s) he set up and took them to their meeting with Elvis Presley at his Bel Aire home in 1965. His close association with many stars from Tom Jones (who he worked with for ten years - "He sang, I did the talking" to Elton John produced many great stories which might otherwise never have seen the light of day. Sir Richard Branson once said that the future of his Virgin Atlantic airline was rescued by a Hutchins' investigation. He worked with Harold Wilson to get him reinstated as Britain's Prime Minister. But it was the Royal Family who watched his work most closely - sometimes with trepidation . . .
