Product description

However one looks at the British musical scene in the early to mid 1960s, it was a unique period - the winds of change, they were a-blowing...it was a time of emancipation from the dominance of American music and the establishment of its own identity, which was new, vibrant and, above all, intellectually challenging as well as being dramatically different. It was truly a fantastic era while it lasted and the musicians you will meet in this book formed an amazing melting pot of talent! Then there is a drummer by the name of Jon Hiseman, who had by his side for most of his musical career a very special musician and his lifetime companion...Barbara Thompson, who certainly deserves an honorable place in the list of great British musical mavericks. Reading about his remarkable experiences while on the road 'playing the bands', unquestionably establishes Jon's importance as an essential piece of the jigsaw puzzle that is British music.
