Over 200 identities from the realms of royalty, sport, movies, television are featured along with Richard’s stories of when, where and how the encounters took place.

The journey has seen him meet the who’s who of fame from George Harrison and Paul McCartney to Bono and The Edge and from Audrey Hepburn to Anna Nicole Smith. A special feature of the book is a collection of photos of the late INXS lead singer, Michael Hutchence, whom Richard considered a friend.
