About George East

To start at the beginning, George East was born on Hayling Island but grew up in Portsmouth where his mother ran a boarding house for fairground workers, circus entertainers and other interesting itinerants. He left school with no qualifications intending to become a rock god, and his band met with early and moderate success when they performed as a support act to Billy Fury, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. After coming second to a 14-year-old trumpeter playing selections From South Pacific in the Butlin's All-England Search for A Star, The Rockin' Hot Rods struggled on until a short-circuit in George's home-made guitar resulted in a catastrophic loss of all the group's equipment and the burning down of a village hall. Deciding to seek his fortune abroad, he ran away to sea in 1963, but got only as far as the Isle of Wight before becoming homesick. Back on the mainland, George worked as a brewer's drayman, private detective, night club bouncer and gravedigger (often at the same time) before meeting and marrying Donella. Settling down to marriage and determined to take a more responsible approach to life, George helped launch one of Britain's earliest commercial radio station, working as a producer and DJ with, among other more well-known names, Kenny Everett. He left the company shortly before Radio Victory became the only ILR station to lose its licence to broadcast, at which point Donella decided that as George was obviously unemployable, the best way ahead was to work for themselves. There followed a succession of diverse business ventures which included a pickled onion manufacturing plant, entertainments agency and clothing repair company. In his spare time the budding author wrote storylines for Jackie and Bluejeans teen magazines under his wife's name, while also submitting scripts for more than a hundred books, films and TV dramas. All were rejected. In 1983, the couple decided to try and make a living out of George's favourite hobby, and bought a public house. (See 'A Year Behind Bars'-paperback and e-book)In his three years as mine host, George was voted The Worst Landord in Britain(twice) in a national newspaper competition, and finally found fame as the world's only professional bed-tester following an embarrassing accident at The Leopold Tavern. Deciding their future lay in making other people famous and successful, George and his wife set up a PR and marketing company. While escorting a thousand publicans on a memorable day trip to Cherbourg, George and Donella fell in love with rural France and decided to move across the Channel. After a disastrous attempt at trying to live off their wits and the land at a ruined water mill in Normandy, the couple published a dire warning to other Francophiles in the form of a book entitled Home
