2009 was a year of celebration marking five decades of the Searchers. From small beginnings the group has reached stratospheric heights. Frank Allen, front man and bass player has spent three years collating all his diaries and memory banks to produce this magnificent account of the history of the Searchers. It is a very full and definitive biography, but as Frank himself states in his Introduction “The story can never be a complete one”.

Nevertheless, the 448 pages are packed with epic stories, comedy and tragedy and little nuggets of information that could only have been experienced by someone who was there, covering in some detail both the earliest days of the embryonic Searchers and Frank’s formative musical years with Cliff Bennett and the Rebel Rousers.

Forewords have been written by Pete Townshend and Bruce Welch, both legends in the rock world.

Packed with stories and anecdotes “The Searchers And Me” is an invaluable insight in to the life of a popstar throughout the sixties and beyond.

In addition, there are 167 photographs many of which have never been published before.

“The Searchers and Me” is a testament to Frank Allen’s enduring popularity both on and off the stage. Buy the book, and when you read it you will feel as though you had experienced the life of being a Searcher.


“The Searchers And Me” is a casebound book of over 440 pages about the Searchers from the group’s inception to the present day. Written by front man and bassist Frank Allen it covers the formative years of his childhood, early career and his time with Cliff Bennett’s Rebel Rousers, his early association with the Searchers and his whole career with the band to the present day.
