Book Review: Letters to Sarah

Corky Laing—drummer in the legendary bands Mountain and West, Bruce & Laing—delivers an honest autobiography with a twist: Laing shares excerpts from dozens of letters he wrote to his mother, Sarah, between the years 1963 and 1997. While Laing was on the road, the letters were a way to keep in touch with his mom and also to make sense of his wild life as a musician who played and/or wrote songs with Leslie West, Jack Bruce, Keith Moon, Levon Helm, Eric Clapton and many more.

By Corky Laing and Tuija Takala
