The underbelly of the last fifty years of the British music scene is laid bare in this book by people who were there, The Beatles, The Stones, The Who, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Marc Bolan, Elton John, Queen, etc., all have fascinating parts of their stories being told here for the very first time. Included are numerous musicians, songwriters, managers, agents, pluggers, record company executives, DJs, roadies, music publishers, producers, engineers, journalists and entrepreneurs alike, and their anecdotes range from the hilarious to the salacious, the unlikely, the downright ridiculous, and the near-slanderous.
"Brilliant anecdotes from music industry insiders that had me laughing out loud"
(Graham Jones author of 'Last Shop Standing')
Taking the title of an old Yardbirds song, this book views the British music scene from above, from below and from all sides, it makes for a compelling read, and at last you can hear, first hand, some of Rock Music's eternal myths and facts either confirmed or quashed, by the people who were actually there when they happened.
"Simply one of the funniest books I have ever read. It's like spending an evening down the best pub in the world!"
(Joss Hutton 'Ugly Things Magazine')
