Congratulations – Songwriter to the Stars

In this engrossing autobiography, Bill Martin, one of the most successful and prolific songwriters of the last few decades, tells not only the story of his Glasgow upbringing, but also some fascinating anecdotes from his long career in the music industry.

Bill wrote several number one hits in the 1960s and 70s and received numerous recognitions for his work in the music industry, including an MBE in 2014.

It is not surprising that a man who worked with George Harrison and Van Morrison, bought John Lennon’s Kenwood house, and wrote the hugely successful Congratulations, recorded by members of Led Zeppelin while they were still session musicians, has dozens of fascinating stories to tell.

A truly compelling read about one of Glasgow’s finest, Congratulations also includes photographs from throughout Bill’s life.

Congratulations – Songwriter to the Stars, by Bill Martin, Duijo Publishing, £15.99.
