"Britt Hagarty was also an author, years later, of a book called "Prisoner of Desire", printed in 1979, which chronicles his time in prison. He died in Vancouver, I believe, as a victim of a hit and run" submitted by Daphne Stewart

Editors note:

His character in the book was called Gallagher and he changed all the names of his friends and musicians to avoid being charged by police for their illegal activities.

Britt penned 2 other books, "Sad Paradise" and "The Day The World Turned Blue", an unauthorized biography of Gene Vincent. You'll find the book listed on the official Gene Vincent website located at:
