Publisher's Summary

By turns funny, charming, and sad, this is the story of a sensitive and sickly lad's northern working-class childhood; of a loving mother who kept him off school because of his asthma; of how he washed up in hotels by night to fund studying at RADA by day and would often be found asleep in class. Rodney also tells of laddish behaviour in swinging London, how he climbed Big Ben to hang a pair of knickers on the hand of the clock, his troubled relationship with Likely Lads co-star James Bolam and many celebrity stories, featuring Ralph Richardson, John Gielgud, Rod Steiger, Jimmy Nail, and Mel Smith.

I had no idea

I had no idea who this actor was, I only knew him from the 'Likely Lads', but he was also a writer, director, divorcee, father, son and husband.
