Rock Music – my books – a genre I love and have lived through. Reviews.

I was born in 1949 and grew up with Rock in my ears. It seeped into my soul and jived my essence.
I lived it, loved it and wrote it and still am. I am to be found at the front still rockin’. It was the Strypes a few days ago! Great gig!
These are some of my books on Rock Music :-
In Search of Captain Beefheart was a memoir of my journey through music. It was a quest that started with Son House, Elmore James and Woody Guthrie and progressed on to Bob Dylan, Roy Harper and Captain Beefheart. It’s the story of my search for the holy grail of Rock and covers all points between.
Here’s a few reviews from Amazon:
Format: Paperback

One man’s journey to find his “religion” which arrives through his “prophets” Roy Harper & Captain Beefheart & his Magic Band. Disjointed/anarchic depending on your viewpoint but readable with some good photos. This man is obsessive about his rock music.

The title is a little misleading; as it is not a book about Beefheart , but rather an account of growing up through the 60s and 70s in Britain. For people like myself 60+ year’s of age and like the author, a keen collector of records and tapes, this book will have a deep resonance. It was like living my early years of music all over again, as Mr. Goodwin kept mentioning the recording artists that I knew.
An enjoyable read, made for the coach, train, or ‘plane trip.

Rock music lovers and anyone who has lived through the sixties and seventies will LOVE this book!
Other books on Rock include:
Opher’s World Tributes to Rock Geniuses
A book in which I give my views on the best Rock and R&B acts of all time. It’s opinionated and controversial, informative and fun.
537 Essential Rock Albums
A book in which I give my views on what constitute the best Rock (in its widest sense) albums of all time and why. There is much to discuss and argue about. It gives you a reasoned opinion and, of course, I am always right!
Why not take a chance and buy them all! (Along with all my other books) You won’t regret it!
