Dicken Puts MR. BIG And BROKEN HOME Into His Autobiography

“I’ve done almost everything that I wanted to do but, obviously, I’m not a millionaire and I’m not famous, and it’s not something that I strive for anymore. I still love music, and I love making music: in my heart, I’m a minstrel, but if I don’t get the opportunity to do it, then I can’t do it.”: in these words Dicken, the British artist who fronted such popular ensembles as MR. BIG and BROKEN HOME outlined to me a part of his life philosophy, one of the key words in his description being “almost”: back in 2016, the veteran didn’t really plan to write and publish an autobiography. Now, the singer and guitarist born Jeff Pain has done just that.

– From The Rock Of Music To The Rock Of Christ

Titled “From The Rock Of Music To The Rock Of Christ” and ready to be issued any day now, the tome includes a lot of stories, Jeff relaying the reason for his “Romeo” getting banned by the Beeb and for the bitterness of a certain American band stealing his collective’s name, reminiscing about MR. BIG touring with QUEEN and pondering the influence of Jesus on his art.

During our interview, he noted, “I don’t see myself as anything more than another person who plays music. At the end of the day, it’s all disposable; and once it’s gone, it’s gone for me, and then I’ll move on and do something different till I die. And when I die, I’ll go to heaven. I just have a wish to do God’s will in my life – whatever it means, whatever it takes. If I have to die for it, I will, because I don’t have a cause right now other than to give my heart to Jesus Christ; I don’t get up in the morning and think, ‘Right, I’m going to take on the world.'”

Dicken’s book will reveal his motifs and motives and promises to be an essential read.
