Recommended: Aren't You Glad That It's Not Christmas Everyday? (Charlie Grima)

#875: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Sir Martin Kinch - erstwhile proprietor at the famed Cherry Blossom Clinic - has recently been alerting his subjects to an interesting if not exciting book by former Wizzard drummer Charlie Grima entitled "Aren't You Glad That Its Not Christmas Everyday? Memoirs of a Wizzard Drummer" (Mirag Publications ISBN 9780993187711). In his own words, Charlie explains the motivation behind his new book thus:

"After a few years of friends encouraging me to write about my times in this business of showing off, I decided to give it a go. I’ve started from the humble beginnings of emigrating to the UK, in the hope that you get a grasp of the culture shock of change that I have experienced. For the better of course. I like to think that I have grasped the “Brummie” sense of humour along the way. Oroight?"

This book really does looks like a great read! "Aren't You Glad That Its Not Christmas Everyday? Memoirs of a Wizzard Drummer" by Charlie Grima can be purchased in Paperback &/or Kindle formats from amazon.com or amazon.co.uk via these links thus:
