Présentation de l'éditeur


The news that Cilla Black had died in August at the age of seventy-two triggered an outpouring of love and a wave of sadness that spread around the world. Her infectious personality and her common touch made her one of Britain’s best loved entertainers. Known to one generation for a string of number-one hits like Anyone Who Had a Heart and You're My World, and loved by another for hosting the classic ITV show Blind Date, Cilla came a long way from hanging coats in Liverpool's Cavern Club for five bob an hour.

In Cilla: 1943 2015, Douglas Thompson traces her rise to the top, her heart-warming marriage to Bobby Willis and the profound effect his death had on her. This affectionate biography is a fitting tribute to our Cilla, a huge talent who became a national treasure.

Cilla Black was a huge star in the 1960’s and one of the most successful girl solo singers of that decade. Even after her fledgling career as a pop singer seemed to be over, she branched out into television; always reinventing herself and moving forwards. As she admits often throughout this book, always motivated to work, push herself and succeed. This biography of Cilla is written in a chatty, easy to read, style. At times, in fact, in reads more like an extended interview, making use of various quotes and often failing to expand on comments or delve much beyond the superficial. Indeed, much of the early chapters about her life growing up in Liverpool seem cobbled together from the Hunter Davies biography of the Beatles. The author admits that often Cilla seems to consider her childhood through rose tinted glasses and, although happy, she certainly grew up with a very poor background, as did her husband Bobby Willis.

It is fair to say that Cilla would have had a very different career without Bobby, who was her staunch helper and partner until his death. The other man who was of prime importance was Brian Epstein, manager of the Beatles and other Merseybeat artists, including Cilla. There are hints of the difficult relationship between Cilla and Epstein – and indeed other artists, neighbours and even Bobby. If Cilla is demanding, then she is the first to admit it, but it would have been interesting to have not had these half heard tantrums or ‘nasty’ comments brushed aside with glib comments. Not so much to try to make her out to be unkind or difficult, but simply to try to understand her a little more. She comes across as both self deprecating and pushy, insecure and selfish. Nobody, obviously, is perfect and her obsessive work ethic are what have helped make her such a long standing success. Yet, in this book, the comments from her are both honest and yet also unrevealing and the author let’s many things stand without examining them too deeply.

With the new television biopic of her life such a success, it is nice to re-examine the life of a celebrity who has been around for so long, but is so often passed over. Much like this book, she is known and yet unknown. Although never really a fan of the television shows she hosted, I have enjoyed her music for many years and, as a Beatles fan, she has obvious interest from her Liverpool background, involvement in the music scene then and her management by Epstein. This book takes us from her childhood, marriage, early career in music, television, short lived film career (including fascinating reviews from that time) and family life. If you have enjoyed the recent television series, this will enable you to know a little more about Cilla and her long career. Although I would have liked more depth at times, it is good that this enjoyable book does not simply concentrate on her younger years, but takes us throughout her entire career so far.

A poor biography .Most info has been re reported from News paper and gossip mags,plus some interviews with friends of Cilla.
In authorised writing is often just that !lacking in integrity.
A non memorable read
