Book Review: "Rolling With Rock Royalty"

Since the ‘60s, singer-keyboardist Brian Chatton has lived and breathed the rocker’s life, and in his colorful memoir he details many of his ups and downs, his many escapades and encounters. Just a few of the notables with whom he’s worked or crossed paths: Jimi Hendrix, John Mayall, Phil Collins, John Miles, Yes, Meat Loaf. Especially vivid are Chatton’s recollections of traveling the
globe as a touring mu- sician. What comes through wonderfully is Chatton’s English charm, his glib and winning spirit, some- thing that must’ve helped him survive the often rough and tumble rock life. Like the man’s life, this book is all over the place––and fun.
