From the late 1950's, Jonathan Adams developed his talent as a surrealist artist at the Chelsea School of Art and, while studying there, sang his own songs in college shows. Later, during National Service in Penang, he painted, sketched, composed songs and put on weekly radio shows. At that time he wrote to his father that his head was 'crammed full of all kinds of things: acting, piano playing, singing, painting and writing - I want to do everything.' And it is this eclecticism that pervades his memoirs, which are, as the title suggests, an embriodered, heightened, dramatised collage of memories, impressions and anecdotes, shot through with a surrealism that also found expression in his art.
Jonathan Adams (1931-2005) is most popularly remembered as the original Narrator in The Rocky Horror Show. He was also an accomplished actor of stage, screen, television and radio as well as a talented surrealist artist.
