The Cake and the Rain promises to be a gripping tale of "sex drugs and rock'n'roll". Following Webb from the early 70s and across the whole of the preceding three decades that led to him weeping over the piano keys as his fingers finally remembered what they had been born to do. Jimmy Webb still plays and records like there's no tomorrow. This is the memoir of one of the greatest songwriters of all time: a man with unfathomable talent - and luck.
Jimmy Webb is the only artist to ever receive a Grammy Award for music, lyrics and orchestration. Inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and achieving the NAS Lifetime achievement award amongst many other prestigious titles including (according to BMI) his song "By the Time I Get to Phoenix" being the third most performed song for fifty years between 1940 and 1990!
"At an age when other singers are losing their voices... Mr Webb is still at the top of his game." The New York Times.
