BOB Morritt , who grew up in Penarth, has just finished a book to be released in England this week devoted to the history of popular music over the past six decades in Britain.

The book called 'Rocking in Britain' which was released early in the USA is described as the authentic rock bible for all self-respecting rock fans in Britain and the world.

With stories that feature Dame Cilla Black (OBE) and her knock backs, the Animals manager who was kidnapped by Japanese Yakuza and the 'Lord' Rock enigma who stood in numerous parliamentary elections plus many more rock secrets - you must give this book a read.

Bob, who now resides in Canada, said: "And of course Penarth is featured as I grew up as a youngster with many friends who became part of the Penarth 'Music Scene'."
