Agatha Christie was one of the greatest thriller writers of all time and certainly the most prolific. In 1926, she was at the centre of a mystery as perplexing as any of her fiction, a series of events which sparked one of the biggest and most extensive police hunts in history. Her crashed car was discovered in Surrey and the famous author was missing, presumed dead by many, for eleven days. However, she was eventually found at a luxury hotel in Harrogate. She claimed then, and for the rest of the life, that she was suffering from amnesia and remembered nothing. Neither the press nor the police believed her.
Jimmy Love’s authentic portrayal of Sir Elton John is typical of a perfectionist. Regarded and respected in the industry as a session vocalist in his own right, he has quickly become regarded as one of the best impersonators in the world today.
“I learned to play (piano) especially for the part of Sir Elton” says Jimmy when asked how long he has been playing. “…it comes with the territory, so when I was asked if I could play the part I started practising right away.”

The Strawbs started life as the Strawberry Hill Boys before emerging into the mainstream from the exciting British Folk Movement of the mid 60s alongside other such luminaries as Fairport Convention, Pentangle, Al Stewart and Roy Harper. Their first album with Sandy Denny attracted the attention of A&M Records in America and they became the first British Band to be signed by the famous label. Under the guidance of Herb Alpert & Gerry Moss, major chart success followed with seven consecutive albums in the Billboard charts, including classics ‘Bursting at the Seams’, ‘Grave New World’, ‘Hero & Heroine’, ‘Dragonfly’ and ‘Ghosts’, earning the band two Gold Albums along the way. Massive coast to coast American tours swiftly followed, sharing the stage with The Eagles, Santana and Frank Zappa.
From the days of Sandy Denny pre Fairport and Sonja Kristina pre Curved Air, the band have enjoyed the finest of soloists in their ranks from Rick Wakeman followed by his son Oliver moving on to join Yes as well as Adam Wakeman joining Black Sabbath, Blue Weaver to The Bee Gees and Don Airey to Deep Purple.
