“I'll tell you someone you shouldn't trust...Lord Lucan! Lent the man a tenner once and I haven't heard from him since!”
Lord Lucan had all the disadvantages that wealth could provide him. His life limited to existential and pretentious conversations with other wealthy elites, Lucan became disenfranchised with his socialite life, with constant wine and champagne receptions and free rides in limos. He choose to cast this aside for the more worthwhile existence as chat Show host. Lord Lucan's life in the public eye began on his popular talk show, The Lord Lucan life show . His complete sensitivity and compassion for everyone in society led to many issues being resolved and the earning of the nickname 'happy Lucan.' Soon Lucan expanded his celebrity into popular music under the alias Quicksilver, after a guitar was thrown at him on his show and he took it home. After numerous hit records Lucan left the talk show, without working off his notice, to concentrate on his music career.
After intense initial success, Quicksilver as Lucan was now known, became over awed with his new celebrity. It became necessary to 'leave' the music career by unconventional means. Lucan gradually began to fain illness and on the 12 Feb 1992, it was announced to weeping crowds that he had passed away. Lucan, now had to forge a new life for himself. But where? His face was known everywhere, and he hadn't done a very good job to disguise himself when he changed identity the first time.
