About Dave Clemo

Dave was born almost exactly halfway through the last century. His first home was a beach chalet in Cornwall. The plain wooden shack had none of the things we take for granted like electricity, sewage or running water. Cornwall in the 1950s had no TV and only two BBC radio stations, so he had very limited exposure to popular music. He was seven when Elvis and Cliff Richard hit the charts. His family moved to West London in 1962. He was given a guitar for Christmas and spent the next few years trying to play it.
In 1967 the area around Ladbroke Grove was the epicentre of the underground music scene that shook the music business like an earthquake. During that late 60s and early 70s he went to a host of gigs and saw groups like Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, The Who, Jethro Tull and Genesis in their earliest incarnations before they became global superstars.
He also spent the next few years trying to emulate his heroes using clapped out and home made guitars and amplifiers before moving to Northampton in 1974. For the next ten years he played in two of the most successful local bands. He wrote his first songs in the late sixties but his writing took off when he became a Christian in 1990. Since then he has had over 100 songs published, has contributed articles for magazines, written and delivered dozens of sermons and was a regular contributor to a 'one minute thought for today' on local radio. He has recorded and released over ten albums of mostly self penned songs, played pubs, concerts and festivals across the UK on guitar, mandolin and bass.
From 2009 a series of health issues has meant that Dave was unable to play at the same frequency as before so he has used the time to turn his writings and research into a series of autobiographical books.
The first volume ‘Too Young for Rock and Roll’ was published in June 2018 and more volumes are in production.
‘A highly recommended read not only for fans of grass roots music but also for those wishing to experience a flavour of those times.’ Pulse Alternative Magazine.

About the Series: Dave Clemo's Musical Story
Dave has been a gigging musician for 50 years. These three books cover his story from the 1950s through to the present day. In his time he has played almost every musical genre from folk to funk, rock to country, pop to gospel. He has played every kind of venue from major theatres and music venues, festivals, pubs, churches and house concerts. When health issues put an end to his gigging days he turned his hand to writing about it.
One reviewer wrote- 'The second book in Dave Clemo's trilogy 'Too Old For Punk' seamlessly picks up where the first volume left off and like 'Too Young For Rock and Roll' it's a rocking good read. Part rock history, part autobiography Dave's books can also be read as social studies as they also capture some of the seismic shifts that swept the country. In an age of power cuts, strikes and three day weeks it can't be overemphasised how music added colour to the leaden seventies..'
Dave's books are meticulously researched and profusely illustrated.
