Published by Rowman & Littlefield, the book was launched at CC Music Shop, 33 Otago Street, Glasgow G12 8JJ. We had a reading of the first chapter, Chris was there, the guitar was on display & the band played a few numbers.
Here are some pics from the event. Thanks to CC Music and to everyone who came along.
Chris takes readers on a fascinating mystery tour to discover whether a Fender Telecaster bought by him in 1973 was the one used by Jimi Hendrix to record the iconic “Purple Haze”. This is a must read book for rock fans, music aficianados and treasure hunters, as well as anyone who likes a good detective story. Great reviews so far….see below
“Endlessly fascinating. It’s not often that you can say about a music book that readers will be impatiently turning the pages, anxious to see how the story plays out, but that’s exavctly what happens here.”
“Equal parts cultural history & detective story, it’s completely compelling reading”
