'Harry Buckle: Following career advice from James Bond author Ian Fleming, in 1962 Harry Buckle became a journalist, This very funny but true story, follows him from his years as the '60's most read pop guru in the UK, writing in Jackie Magazine (with the pen name Pete Lennon assigned to him by the editor) to then starting his own music company and somewhat to his suprise, bringing you a hundred or so Top of the Pops Chart hits.. 'You'd think being a music journaist was safe enough except for predatory female fans, but I hadn't really expected the US Airforce to drop four H Bombs on me. Real ones.... Then he found himself reluctantly working with both the British M15 an Russsian KGB Secret Service, and interrogated in Moscow about what he had been doing at No. 10 Downing Street. 'It seems to us you are seeking to destabilise your rulers with naked pictures of Prime Minister Harold Wilson?'... 'I don't gamble. Life in the music business is enough, but we won tens of thousands of pounds for four years running when we learned the results of the Miss World contest in advance... 'Having the hits, confirmed the old music industry adage that I was 'Happy to be Part of the Industry of Human Happiness'... with many of those hits coming from Depeche Mode, Yazoo, Alison Moyet, Erasure and others. But then sitting watching national TV news in the USA and discovering I was apparently working with the Mafia was a bit of a reality check'... then in more pop mode... You want to know who to blame for 'Agadoo', 'Yviva Espana', 'The Birdie Song' and some others starting the whole 'dad dancing' phenomena... His novels Just in Time, Just One Day and Just in Case are set to be published this summer. His biography 'Sometimes Music is my Only Friend' is being updated and corrected.
