Former pop star to sing and speak at Norwich dinner
Former singing star with Herman's Hermits, John Gaughan, will be performing and talking at the next FGB dinner in Norwich on Thursday June 20 at the presidential Suite of the Mercure Hotel.
At the age of 15, John was singing in pubs, and at 18 was one of Herman’s Hermits, performing in Madison Square Gardens and the Holly wood Bowl.
From there he worked his way down, consuming two and a half bottles of vodka a day, and ending up on the streets. A failed suicide attempt left him going to the off-licence in a wheelchair in his pyjamas.
And then there was a knock on his door, and a man said that Jesus had sent him….. He started church-going, but it was some time later that he gave his life to Christ, a lady broke the alcoholic curse over him, and he has not wanted a drink since.
John loves to talk about the person who has changed his life forever.
