Published by Lapwing Publishing Services He was discovered by Ray Davies of The Kinks, signed by EMI, sung and wrung dry by the Flying Pickets and his music brought to glorious life on the West End stage by Cameron Mackintosh. The Ship Hits the Fans is one musician's voyage into the rocks - and rocking on. Hereward Kaye's memoir is a fascinating account of working alongside some of the biggest names in pop, rock and musical theatre. As well as taking us down the turbulent road of life as a musician, The Ship Hits the Fans reveals the inside story of Moby Dick the Musical. Moby Dick was Cameron Mackintosh's latest extravaganza back in 1992 and eagerly anticipated, having become a minor cult on its way to The Piccadilly in London's West End. But would it succeed and bring fame and fortune to Hereward, or fail and give the British Press the first chance they'd had to sink a musical produced by Cameron? The Ship Hits the Fans is a life story unlike any other. A hilarious tale of a life in music and a show setting sail on waves of hope towards an ominous and lurking iceberg of critics. "The hardest quality to find in musical theatre is a composer with a unique style and sound. Hereward Kaye has it." Sir Cameron Mackintosh
