There are very few people who can claim to have sat in Tammy Wynette's bath and sung 'Stand By Your Man' and had Billy Connolly sing one of your songs on Michael Parkinson.
Shay Healy can.
There are very few people who can claim to have sat in Tammy Wynette's bath and sung 'Stand By Your Man' and met Johnny Cash, admired the Picasso in Andy Williams' toilet, rode pillion with legendary cowboy Roy Rogers on his Honda 750cc, arranged the band for Bono's wedding, led the Patrick's Day parade in Erin, Tennessee, appeared in Carnegie Hall on their first night in New York, ate deep-fried scorpions in Beijing with the Head of Propaganda, been Head of Sales for a company that produced Dixie Dude Dog Food, played for Ed Koch in Gracie Mansions, had Billy Connolly sing one of your songs on Michael Parkinson ...
Shay Healy can ...
'like a really entertaining pub conversation'
'entertaining romp through Shay's own highly entertaining career'
'a stirring tale of one of Ireland's true renaissance men'
'Shay Healy is a wonderfully warm and engaging storyteller. He details the events of his life with an hilarious and sometimes rueful bemusement. A huge enjoyment ... will have the reader calling for more.'
'A witty, self-effacing compendium of Healy highlights and lowlights'
'An unputdownable account of a life well lived. I only met Shay once, and was highly impressed with his genuineness and humility. 'On The Road' pays unique homage to both of those qualities. Buy it.'
A light hearted look at Shay's amazing career to date, an enjoyable book from start to finish.'
'A fine storyteller relating fascinating yarns in easily-accessed prose.'
'In this engaging memoir of knock about life in the entertainment business, he drops a name on every page - sometimes, it seems, in every paragraph - and you better believe it too. He's been there, done that and has usually got the photograph to prove it.'
'a snap-crackle-and-pop read that sizzles with self-deprecating whimsy'
