Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Royston Ellis is a British writer, biographer and poet. As poet, he’s the main British representative of the Beat Generation. John Lennon called him England's answer to Allen Ginsberg.

He began his career with two poetry collections: "Jiving To Gyp" (1959) and "Rave" (1960).

In the following years, he performed these sequences of poems on stage and TV (e.g.‘Living for Kicks’), accompanied by rock music. His mix of poetry and rock music was called "rocketry. From 1960 to 1961, he was backed by some of greatest British Beat Musicians such as The Shadows, Jimmy Page (later of Led Zeppelin) and the Beatles when they were still unknown. It was Ellis who suggested these latters spell Beetles with an "a" instead of the "e", as they were inspired by the Beat generation and played beat music.

The Beatles immortalized him in their song “Paperback Writer”.
