IN THE COMPANY OF JAMES DAUBENEY
The Story of Rock and Roll is a hilarious, irreverent and fascinating trip to a different world, a world of Classic Rock and Heavy Metal where everything is about the music. James Daubeney was born in the UK in 1966 and grew up in South Africa. He lived through the glory days of 70’s Rock, the energy of Punk and the fun times of Hair Metal before it gave way to Grunge. The book is a rollercoaster ride through these times as James takes us through the music, the bands he saw and the bands he played in.
A successful career in engineering and business never blunted his true passion for Rock and Roll and somehow he managed to balance it all. This book is about music powered by electric guitars, growing up surrounded by it and all the interesting characters that were thereby associated. James cares deeply about this amazing music and tells the story of his life against the backdrop of what was happening in the Rock ‘n’ Roll universe at the time. The Story of Rock and Roll is one man’s perspective of the music and has the power to take you back so that you too can remember the good times and the songs that defined the era!
