A biography of Ian Dury, who was stricken with polio at a young age and defied expectations by becoming one of the founders of the punk-rock scene in Britain in the 1970s. Ian Dury (1942–2000) is regarded as one of the most influential and original British singer-songwriters of the past thirty years; his music and his style made him a real trendsetter.
