Synopsis

From school punk to modern day film producer Richard Jobson has lived a full and colourful life. A harrowing incident as a child that left him suffering with epilepsy but he was a mere 15 year old when he launched the punk rock band The Skids in 1977 with his songwriting partner Stuart Adamson. He was allowed to go on tour on the condition that he received some education on the road.

With hit singles including the immortal 'Into The Valley', after four albums The Skids folded and Jobson formed The Armoury Show whilst Adamson moved on to form his new band Big Country. They remained friends and their relationship is explored in detail throughout.

In the 1980s Jobson became a familiar face on television as a presenter and as film reviewer for Sky Television. In June 2013, he was awarded an honorary degree (Doctor of Arts) from Edinburgh Napier University.

Today he is a successful filmmaker and this part of his life story is also covered. With a life that has gone full circle in 2017 he reactivated The Skids. A successful UK tour prompted demand for more shows in 2018 as well as the band's first new album for over three decades, making this the perfect time to write his memoirs.

Into The Valley is a riveting read of how one man overcame his disability to become successful in the world of music and film and will appeal particularly to fans of Punk Rock, The Skids and Big Country.
