Inhaltsangabe: Ronnie Scott tells here of his life as a musician and bandleader and as the founder, with his partner Peter King, of the great jazz club which bears his name. Ronnie said of running their world famous venue, 'It's made a happy man very old.' The book provides a humorous and shrewd behind- the-scenes account of the headaches and hysteria of running a club in the heart of London's Soho and coping with the capricious temperaments of some of the world's most celebrated artists. Some of My Best Friends Are Blues includes contributions by Benny Green and Spike Milligan, with cartoons by Mel Calman. This edition features a foreword by the late Pete King. Ronnie Scott died in 1996 but the Club survives as a testament to their vision and determination.
