John Bobin's book about the Southend Scene
'Music was always in Bobinís blood. From the time he was twelve he was playing guitar, buying albums and dreaming of fame and glory. In prose as cheerfully infectious as a pop melody, Bobin gives you a you-are-there guided tour through the world of music, from England to Germany to Italy, as he makes his mark in hard-driving rock and roll to the new creative influence of psychedelic sounds.
'From lucky breaks to missed opportunities, Bobin lovingly recounts the many musical roads his life took, and all the myriad people and places who helped him along the way, complete with behind-the-scenes look at the recording, radio and television industry. But Bobinís life wasnít always a Cinderella story, and his candid clear-eyed look at the perils and pitfalls of fame Ė including the occasional disastrous tour Ė give scope and breadth to an absolutely engrossing tale. Profits from the sale of the book go to cancer research.'
