Biography

English singer-songwriter, record producer, music entrepreneur, former TV and radio presenter, and convicted sex offender.

King entered the music industry with his 1965 single "Everyone's Gone to the Moon", which was a hit. He followed this with more record releases of which several made the charts in the 1960s and 1970s.

King also worked with other acts. He discovered and named Genesis. He produced the Bay City Rollers' first hit. He started the record label UK Records in 1972. An early signing was 10cc whom he named and who released their product with the label. In the 1980s King increased his media work and appeared as a presenter of British television programmes including Entertainment USA.

He was arrested on 23 November 2000 for child sex offences committed in the early 1970s. He evidently lured young men aged between 14 and 16 into performing sex acts with him. Though only five victims were involved in his trial, police believed hundreds more suffered at his hands over many years. King was found guilty on 21 November 2001 and imprisoned. He was released on parole in March 2005. He remains on the Sex Offenders Register and is prohibited from working with anyone under the age of 18.

King has published two volumes of autobiography, 65 My Life So Far and 70 FFFY and two novels, Beware The Monkey Man and Death Flies, Missing Girls and Brigitte Bardot, and he has produced two films, Me Me Me (2011) and The Pink Marble Egg (2013).

Source Notes

Frank Clifford quotes Greg Young who heard King's response live on talk radio to astrologer Robert Currey, 1996

Sy Scholfield quotes birth notice (no time given): "KING.--On Dec. 6, 1944, at 19, Bentinck Street, London, W.1, to Ailsa, wife of Lt.-Colonel G. F. J. King, American Field Service--a son." (Times, 7 Dec. 1944, p. 1). Because the notice appeared in the newspaper the day after his birth it is likely he was born in the morning, which concurs with the birth time collected by Clifford.
