The photographs include greatest n names belonging to rock photography like Kate Simon, Neal Preston, Pennie Smith, Jim Marshall, Ross Halfin and Gered Mankowitz.
The manuscript put forward by the author is actually an expansive edition of his career. His details and words have been presented in the form of captions that preserve critical moments and events of his life. Not only has this but he also added visas, stamps, photos collected from his very own passport to add better details. This book has become a historical masterpiece due to his own words coupled with hand-picked photo selection. The remarkable musical journey of the artist has been beautifully put forward by himself. It’s nothing more than the story of a kid who was literally involved deeply with music and music also embodied itself in him. It’s a combined tale of music, a teenager who has passion for music and how his life gets affected by his passion.
This book is worth the price it comes with. It is basically a handcrafted masterpiece of art. Some people feel that the rock star’s book is highly unaffordable but the author defended this query by adoring the quality offered by the Genesis publications and their bookbinding. It is definitely a pictorial record compilation of the life of a superstar artist where readers can have a chance to see behind the world of music and let the pictures speak for themselves as the language of music does.
