Product Description



'Rattle and Drum' ...

...is the story of drummer Scott Hunter's musical adventures, from early days in his garden shed playing along to Deep Purple and Zeppelin albums to recording with internationally successful British rock band, Jethro Tull. It's been a chequered journey of ups, downs, and somewhere-in-betweens, but Scott's down to earth sense of humour and instinct for self preservation during his (many) musical times of adversity make for an entertaining, fascinating and occasionally laugh-out-loud account of a life on the edge of rock 'n' roll.

By the way, how is a drum solo like a sneeze?

You know it's coming, but there's nothing you can do about it . . .

Read on . . ....

About the Author

Scott was born in Romford, Essex in 1956. His writing career was kick-started after he won first prize in the Sunday Express Short Story Competition. Scott divides his time between writing, IT contract work and drumming. He has recorded with internationally renowned rock band 'Jethro Tull' and appeared in concert with 70's popsters 'Mungo Jerry'. Scott has recently published his third and fourth novels, the first an adult crime thriller entitled 'Black December', and the second an historical novel set in Roman Britain in 367AD entitled 'The Serpent and the Slave'. Scott lives in Berkshire with his wife, Katherine, his two youngest children (Tom, 14 and Emily, 13) and a Cocker Spaniel named Archie. He is a committed Christian (Scott, not Archie) and is actively involved in his local church in Reading. Scott was long listed for the Times/Chicken House Children's Novel Competition for 'The Ley Lines of Lushbury' and won the Sunday Express Short Story Competition a few years back for his historical entry set in the English Civil War. 'The Trespass' is an Amazon top 20 Bestseller.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brings back great memories 22 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
OK so I do have a slight interest in Scott's drumming career as I was 'there' at a couple of meaningful points, but this is a great read anyway. The brilliant scene-setting and descriptive skills found in 'Trespass' are found here too, along with a few great reminders of what went on for aspiring musicians in the 70s and 80s.
