Born in Yorkshire in 1938, Brian Hudson moved with his parents to Kent in time to experience life in ‘Bomb Alley’ during the Nazi Blitz on London. He spent most of his childhood and teenage years in the outer London suburb of Orpington, Kent, but during World War 2, while his father served in the British army, he and his mother divided their time between Kent and Yorkshire. Brian was a student at the University of Liverpool when that city rose to world fame for its popular music scene. He was a founder member of Cass and the Cassanovas, a pioneer Merseyside beat group which played a role in The Beatles story. This period of his life is described in his memoir How I Didn’t Become a Beatle (The History Press, 2008).
Since the mid 1960s, Brian has lived in various parts of the world, including Ghana, Hong Kong, Jamaica, Grenada and Australia. He is now an Adjunct Professor at the Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane.
Brian’s book Whe’ Yu’ From? (Garliford Publishing, 2011) is his second memoir. His latest book Waterfall: Nature and Culture was published in 2012.
