I was born in Pinner England in 1947. My father was an RAF Squadron Leader. My parents were divorced when I was young and my Mother married Fred Farebrother.

My stepfather nicknamed me ‘Derf’. At the age of eleven I won a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music. My first band was called the Corvettes which evolved into Bluesology. During the mid 60’s we were backing American soul and R&B artists. I changed my name in 1972.

My middle name was taken from the horse in Steptoe and Son TV series. My live album 1970 (‘17-11-70’, as it was known in the UK) truly highlighted my talent as a musician as well as showing my influence in boogie-woogie and gospel music. In 1979, I became the first Western pop star to perform in Israel and the USSR In 1984, I married on Valentine’s Day in Sydney, Australia. I divorced, with no children, in 1997. I then formed my Foundation and hosted a post-Oscar inaugural party in Beverly Hills in March 1993. This has become an annual and much-anticipated high-profile event.

I had to face health issues of my own and had a pacemaker fitted after a worrying angina episode in July 1999. I am a keen football fan and became involved with a major league club in 1976. I also support the St Kilda Football Club in the Australian Football League. I am a noted art collector, with reputedly the largest private photographic collection in the world. I live in Windsor, England, and have homes in Venice, Nice, London, and Atlanta. WHO AM I?
