Excerpt:

“I remember Eric Clapton talking about how, at the age of 15 or so, he was listening to Family Favourites on the radio. Suddenly - and it always happens suddenly -  came the first riffs of a Chuck Berry song. 'It just did me in - pinned me against the wall.'

He’d discovered rock’n’roll. He’d been hit. And like everyone who’s been hit, he entered a world: the rock’n’roll universe. Not just a blessing but an ordeal, not just a discovery but a derangement.

Reality is itself the ultimate show. That's the hit. And the world it throws you into? You're in it right now.”


Here's a snippet of the excellent afternoon we had with Andrew, part of our opening celebrations, where he spoke about his book:
