Brief Description: After a somewhat lonely and inwardly focused childhood Billy Roberts entered adolescence finally understanding why he had always felt ‘diffferent’. As a sickly child his life expectancy had been poor but he had always known that he wouldn’t die young because he had an important gift that he needed to share with the world - he was psychic.
As I Recall It is Billy’s own account of his journey from ‘odd’ child to successful musician and beyond, documenting how he was to emerge as one of the UK’s most successful, if unconventional, Stage Psychics.
As a renowned authority on esoteric matters, Billy’s career has led him to many strange and sometimes scary places investigating the paranormal. He appeared on television long before programmes about haunted buildings became fashionable and has won the respect of experts on the paranormal across the globe.
These days, Billy tries to lead a quieter life but as this fascinating autobiography explains, he has learnt to always expect one or two surprises. This is the extraordinary story of one man’s experience of a life spent unravelling the secrets of the dead.
About the Author:
As well as being one of the UK’s leading stage psychics, Billy Roberts is also an authority on the paranormal and metaphysical subjects. He lectures and conducts his workshops and seminars all over the world, and his unconventional and, at times, extremely radical techniques attract the interest of esoteric students from many countries. He has been psychic since he was a child and is both clairvoyant and clairaudient. However, when he left school in 1962 at the age of 16, he was already living the dream of every other teenager, playing lead guitar in a rock band and touring with some of the biggest names of the sixties, such as Chuck Berry, The Moody Blues, The Yardbirds, The Small Faces, The Kinks, to name but a few. In 1970, after a long illness, Billy’s career as a musician came to an end. After returning to the UK, a series of what he calls ‘Mystical Experiences’, made him turn his attention to his own personal spiritual development. After serving spiritualist churches all over the UK for many years, in 1983 he founded The Thought Workshop, the northwest’s first Centre for Psychic and Spiritual Studies and Alternative therapies. The centre, established in Rodney Street, (the Harley Street of Liverpool,) was officially opened by Billy’s friend, the great Doris Stokes, and was also visited by some of the greatest veteran exponents of mediumship, such as author and spiritual teacher, Ursula Roberts and world-renowned psychic artist, Ivor James. The centre was an innovation but was opposed by many of the leading Spiritualist bodies, which prevented many of their mediums from working there. When the centre closed in the late eighties, Billy opened the Billy Roberts Paranormal Study Centre in Penny Lane, (of Beatles fame) and although this too has now closed, he still continues to travel with his work all over the world. In 2003 Billy was commissioned by Sony Games Empire to feature in a documentary to promote their new playstation 2 game Ghost Hunter, filmed on location in New Orleans.
