STORIES OF EXCESS BY A FORMER ROCK STAR TURNED TRIBUTE SINGER

 

***AN ENTERTAINING NOVEL ABOUT AN ‘80s HAIR METAL BAND***

 

For fans of the hit movie Rock Of Ages and the cult classic This Is Spinal Tap

 

This fictional rock memoir tells the story of Johnny Cannon; an Alice Cooper tribute singer and former frontman for The Druids, one of the most exciting and distinctive bands of the ‘80s hair metal era. They released two albums (The Flight Of The Druids and Kingdome Come) and toured the UK, Europe, America and Japan before folding.

Johnny Cannon narrates the story of The Druids and the history of the hair metal genre from the early ‘80s to 1991. Hair metal was big business in the ‘80s until grunge exploded and it consequently became universally derided and a “thing of the past.” Many bands lost their record deals, folded or suffered constant line-up changes and were reduced to playing in tiny clubs or going back to the real world and working for someone else. They got “proper” jobs. Johnny Cannon was there and he can tell you everything.

Vividly recalled and entertainingly written, this “mock rock memoir” is filled with hilarious anecdotes, candid diary entries and tales of unrelenting honesty. It is also a moving tribute to a bygone era. It’s My Life is filled with stories of excess by a former ‘80s rock star turned tribute singer and is Britain’s answer to Mötley Crüe’s hugely successful autobiography The Dirt.
