During the year 20/11/12 nine months had passed by as I waited patiently for my 'Critique Ken' to fulfil the arrangement that we had previously made. I had almost hit 'rock bottom' so I decided to give up the idea of continuing with my 'almost finished' Autobiograph. The title of the book was to be called - Wammy in Wonderland - but that was to be superceded with a suggested name by the initial critique Ken, after some reserch I found that the name -'How Not to become a famous Rock Star' - was already being used in the 'Pipeline' and it was at that point I decided to give the whole thing a miss. I was simply and sadly going nowhere.

Some time later, after we had settled in, my father had the challenge of building an asbestos garage at the rear of the house, which at that time was quite an accomplishment. He was to spend most of his time there, away from our so-called family as he tinkered for hours with his pride and joy, a Ford Anglia car. When my father was away from our house, I later found him to be a socially calculated sort of character and soon made friends with the local garage lads that used to congregate at the rear of our house in a really large garage owned by an animal feed salesman and his wife, Bob and Bertha Hoyle. Car bonnets were always open revealing their well-maintained engines and spanners were always to the ready. Laughter wasn’t uncommon, the lads and my father got along well, like a good old bunch of mates, but nobody knew the real - Mr Gerard Walmsley. - (Unquote).

Many people dream about 'making it' in the music busines, in fact, 'making it' in the music business is big business in itself. Dave Wammy Walmsley is a talented Singer/Songwriter who's done it. He's played at - the Glastonbury Festival in 1971, following Dave Bowie's (Debut) - the Cavern in Liverpool with Bad Finger (formerly The Ivy's)- the Marquee in London - the Roundhouse - the Lyceum - the Rendezvous - he's released singles, albums and has won awards for his music. He still plays at the Isle of Man TT races in June, there are not many that can say that and it be true.
This is the story of one man's remarkable journey through the triumphs and pitfalls of the music industry. It could've just been a list of famous people he's met along the way, but it's not, It's an often hilarious, occasionally tragic, yet always brutally honest account of one man's ultimate triumphs over life's kicks in the teeth. Dave Wammy Walmsley really does 'Deliver the Goods'. Unquote).
