William Kingshart was born in London but his parents, whom he describes as 'bohemians', moved to Ibiza when he was two. He grew up on the smallest of the Balearic Islands, bare-foot, wild and uncombed. He did not attend school, but for four years had a governess who disappeared one day when William was 12.
In his teens, he moved with his family to Cordoba on the Spanish mainland, where at 16 he got his first job, breaking in wild horses. At 19, still bare-foot, wild and uncombed, William moved to London, via Barcelona and Paris, to become a rock star. He is grateful to whatever gods watch over him for foiling that project.
