From the Falklands to Bosnia Franks account is both humorous and informative and makes great reading for anyone who is interested in The Searchers or music of the 60s.Travelling Man is filled with stories. The early days at the famous Star Club in Hamburg with The Beatles who were on the brink of immortality. And his first embarrassing meeting with a young, acid-tongued John Lennon. The astounding American package show that performed six times daily for a week and boasted a lineup that included The Searchers, Dusty Springfield, Millie, Marvin Gaye, The Supremes, Martha and the Vandellas, The Ronettes, The Temptations, Smokey Robinson and The Miracles, The Shangrilas and a host of others.

And how Frank turned down the chance to be the father of Dusty Springfields love child.The pages include a bevy of intriguing characters. The Filipino minder who wanted to kill the roadie. The barmaid who possessed a bosom on which you could land a helicopter. And the lady agent who was the face that lunched a thousand shits.Frank describes what it is like to land in war-torn Bosnia on the very day the UN commenced the bombing of Sarajevo, and how it feels to pound out your thirty-year-old hits to a hangar full of nineteen year old squaddies.

You can also find out why he describes sex for him as being like a dog walking on its hind legs. This book is not just an insight into the travelling life of a pop group. It is written with an impish sense of humour that will have you chuckling in your seat.
