David Essex: Danger In The Fairground

Stephen Demorest, Circus, 20 January 1976

"I'VE ALWAYS gone against trying to be something I'm not," says David Essex, the British pop idol who is lounging in a suite of Coventry's DeVere Hotel prior to performing for a gang of screamers half his age. "You'd get all unstuck saying 'No, I don't drink brandy... well, yeah, I do drink brandy.' I'm married and I've always said I'm married. I'm 28? I am 28."
