About this Item

Paperback. 336 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.8in.Music and book publisher Tabitha Music Limited have re-published the first novel by England based author, musician and record producer Graham Sclater. Born in Exeter in 1947 Graham spent many years living and playing Hammond organ in a number of groups in Germany and Scandinavia during the sixties. He returned to England in the early seventies where he worked as a session musician in many of the top London studios. An accomplished songwriter and musician, Graham has been featured in a number of arts and musical programmes and has performed and recorded with many artists including Jimi Hendrix, Fats Domino, Ritchie Blackmore, James Taylor, Elton John, Christine Perfect, Tony Ashton and numerous name musicians. He recently had two of his original screenplays, More than a woman and Hatred is the key optioned by an American production company. Graham can be heard regularly on terrestrial and web based radio stations around the world reviewing his book of the month and presenting the A-Z of writing. All in all, the book exudes the optimism and damn the torpedoes attitude of any young rock and roller from any era - definitely recommended. Ticket to Ride is a fun book to read. The fact that it is rooted in reality makes it seem like a genuine biography or autobiography rather than a novel. It is evident that much of it is, or could be, based on actual events. The book provides an insight into the life of a hard-working band in the 1960s. To the hundreds of members of British groups (remember, a lot of groups from Scotland played in Hamburg) who had never-to-be-forgotten experiences in Germany in the Sixties; this is a book to jog their memories! A highly recommended book which is currently only available in English. The book is a cracking little kitchen sink drama, littered with all the hopes and dreams that any young kid with an interest in music has. Ticket to Ride shows us the seamier side of life in Germany in the 60s and how it is easy to fall into the dangers of this kind of living. Its all here in one gangster and hooker infested plate of realism, which was the Reeperbahn at that time This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.

About the Author:

Graham Sclater spent many years living and playing Hammond organ in many groups in Germany and Scandinavia during the sixties. He returned to England in the early seventies where he worked as a session musician in many of the top London studios. An accomplished songwriter and musician, Graham has been featured in arts and musical programmes and performed and recorded with many artists including Jimi Hendrix, Fats Domino, Ritchie Blackmore, James Taylor, Elton John, Christine Perfect, Tony Ashton and numerous name musicians. Many of his songs have won competitions in France, Spain, Gibraltar and Japan as well as being recorded by artists around the world. Graham’s first novel “Ticket to Ride” set in Hamburg during the 1960’s was published in 2006 by Flame Books. Active on developing many projects at any one time, Graham is a prolific writer who carefully researches his subject before reaching for the PC. Many of his projects involve music and his background enables him to combine an unusual mix of original music and script. Graham Sclater enjoys working in many arenas, using first hand experience of as many subjects as possible, often spending time researching overseas. He is at home writing and developing any concept. He has an understanding of budgeting, the logistics of production, location and direction and has had a number of his projects optioned in the UK and overseas by television and film production companies. His first children’s novel “We’re gonna be famous” was published in 2009 followed by historical novel “Hatred is the key” in 2010 by Tabitha Books. He is also working on the titles: “Other side of the tracks” & “Lying eyes.” Graham’s updated version of his first novel “Ticket to Ride” was re-printed in late 2012 and is now available across the world from Amazon.com and was then followed by his fourth novel “Too big to cry” in spring 2013. Graham’s fifth novel “Love Shack” set in the East End of London and the Red Light District of Amsterdam was published on 23 October 2015. “More than a woman” Graham’s sixth novel is out now. Graham can be heard regularly on terrestrial and web-based radio stations around the world reviewing his Book of the month and presenting the A-Z of writing and “Hits & Bits” where he tells the story behind the “hit” record.
