Dj Read Composes Slade: The Musical
British radio DJ MIKE READ has written a musical about seventies glam rockers SLADE.
The former BBC presenter, who is organising a tsunami charity single with SIR CLIFF RICHARD, BOY GEORGE and former BEE GEES ROBIN and BARRY GIBB, has written a script to accompany the band's hit songs, including MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY and CUM ON FEEL THE NOISE.
Read enthuses, "This will be based on their story - not some futuristic novel with the songs shoved in as and when."
The London's West End currently stages musicals based on a host of rockers' back catalogues, including QUEEN, ELVIS PRESLEY, BUDDY HOLLY, ABBA and ROD STEWART.24/01/2005 18:35
