Key Changes

A Musical Memoir

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Key Changes is an extremely frank, personal account of the highs and lows of show business, from post-war Twice Nightly Variety to the present day. Denis King is a witty anecdotalist; the stories he tells are funny, poignant, and eye-opening. 

In the 1950s and early 1960s Denis was a member of Britain's first boy band, The King Brothers. Since then he has composed more than 200 TV themes, including ITV's award-winning The Adventures of Black Beauty, and has collaborated with numerous theatre legends to write more than 25 stage musicals - Privates On Parade among them.

His career has encompassed every aspect of show business from singing and performing to producing and composing; he has experienced success alongside disaster and betrayal; and the artists with whom he has worked read like a Who's Who of British and American stage and screen.

But Key Changes is not merely a potted history or a lengthy name-drop. It is actually an intimate portrait of the grind as well as the glamour in what most people outside the entertainment industry often assume is a charmed way to earn a living.

“I’ve known Denis King for many years but in spite of that, I would strongly recommend this book.” - Barry Cryer

“Denis King changed my life. I remember seeing The King Brothers on TV and I thought, ‘Yes! I could do that!’ but I was too tall. So I had the operation and the rest is history.” - Bill Oddie

“His skills as racy raconteur and dry-as-a-bone humorist are as legendary as his tinkling fingers and classic compositions.” - Maureen Lipman

Standing On The Corner – yes, one of the great records of that year. Or that month, certainly. I remember The King Brothers as some of the liveliest, freshest, most exciting, oddly-attractive  young  men  I’d  ever  seen  on TV. I know Elvis borrowed a lot of tricks from The King Brothers.” - Michael Palin

“Denis is a trusty friend, a favourite collaborator, a fine musician, and a true original. Though what exactly he was originally, I really couldn't say.” - Alan Ayckbourn
