In Search of Captain Beefheart – seems to be my most popular book on Rock Music

In Search of Captain Beefheart – seems to be my most popular book on Rock Music – It’s a memoir about my life in Rock Music searching for the excitement and brilliance – From Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, Roy Harper to Jimi Hendrix and White Stripes. It’s a journey.

This is a memoir that takes you from my early days, first singles of Rock ‘n’ Roll, through my experience at live concerts and festivals in the sixties to the present day. It’s full of photos and reminiscences as I set out on the search for the holy grail of Rock.

I got to see and meet a lot of the best. It’s all in here. Here’s some reviews:

‘Rock music lovers and anyone who has lived through the sixties and seventies will LOVE this book!’

‘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.’

If you love Rock Music you’ll find this fascinating.
