Rock and Roll Tourist
After his much acclaimed book Rock and Roll Mountains, Graham Forbes returns with Rock and Roll Tourist. A combination of Billy Connolly meets Bill Bryson, Rock and Roll Tourist is a hugely entertaining mix of travel, rock music and humour.
Rock and Roll Tourist is a travel book with a difference. Graham Forbes takes us on a roller-coaster ride around the UK, Europe and the USA. The book features Franz Ferdinand, Rod Stewart, Hayseed Dixie, Anthrax, BB King, Incredible String Band, Jerry Lee Lewis and many others. It is a very funny, occasionally disturbing, sometimes moving book.
Graham Forbes has been a musician for many years, playing with all sorts of bands from the Incredible String band to the Rezillos (the latter for about 2 hours!). When he was young Graham dreamed of playing football for Partick Thistle. But he was hopeless. Fortunately when he was 13 he heard the Stones, bought an electric guitar for £7 and has been playing in bands ever since. Graham will play with anyone, any time, anywhere, from a bus shelter to a festival.
