Robin Le Mesurier, the son of two of Britain’s best-loved comedy actors, John Le Mesurier and Hattie Jacques, and a hugely successful musician, has penned a tell-all book about his life. Robin cut his first single for EMI at 16 and was offered a place at the Royal College of Music but choose rock and roll. Playing in various groups and studio sessions led to a spell with The Wombles, the chart-topping band based on a children’s book – but his involvement with them came to an abrupt end after he was arrested.

Robin began his association with Sir Rod Stewart by working as a roadie with the band, but later on he became a key member of the group, with whom he recorded and toured worldwide. His love life was hectic at times – numerous girlfriends included Sharon Osbourne and Brogan Lane, Dudley Moore’s ex-wife, before he married a Playboy Bunny girl.

In 1994, Robin started working with Johnny Hallyday, one of the world’s bestselling recording artists and has since toured worldwide regularly with the French actor and rock icon, often described as ‘The French Elvis’.

Inevitably, the rock and roll lifestyle took its toll. In 2011 Robin was drinking a bottle of vodka a day and his second marriage was in trouble. He appeared on Rehab, in which a group of celebrities with addictions resided at a rehabilitation centre in Malibu. This treatment certainly saved his marriage… if not his life.

  1. Mr Dumpton- Amazon review

    This is so well written. Robin has written with honesty about the highs and lows of his life. It was so good, I didn’t want to put it down. in fact, I am going to read it again, as it feels so real. I really recommend this insight into the celebrity, and rock star world, However, Robin shines through as one of the nice guys.
