Full Description

Life in post-war Britain is witness to stories of deprivation and excesses; from the austerity of the 1950s through to the sex-obsessed swinging 60s in London and the cocaine-fuelled 1980s.

From bicycles and baked beans to a Rolls Royce and caviar. From a maisonette to a mansion and back again. Freezing darkrooms and toxic workshops to state-of-the-art studios and luxury suites.

The author's journey through the rock concert business from Highgate to Harlem and Manhattan's mafia is a rollercoaster ride through a colourful life.

From the author:

Young readers who wish to further their capitalist ambitions should take note of the many mistakes I made, but I would encourage them to pursue their dream, pushing everything aside to achieve it, as looking back now, it was a whole lot of fun

Colin Fitzgerald now lives quietly and contentedly in Australia with his wife, Viola, and Staffordshire bull terrier, Zelda.
