About the Author
Dave Holwill was born in Guildford in 1977 and quickly decided that he preferred the Westcountry – moving to Devon in 1983 (with some input from his parents). After an expensive (and possibly wasted) education there, he has worked variously as a postman, a framer, and a print department manager (though if you are the only person in the department then can you really be called a manager?) all whilst continuing to play in every kind of band imaginable on most instruments you can think of. His debut novel, Weekend Rockstars, was published in August 2016 to favourable reviews and The Craft Room, his second (a very dark comedy concerning death through misadventure), is due for publication in 2017. He is currently working on a third about the complications of living with your estranged father when you're in love with your best friend, or the complications of living with your estranged son when his best friend is in love with you - depending on which bit it is.

It’s an engaging, easy read. If there are a lot of surprises in the plot for you then, well, you have probably read even less books than I have. But a solid page turner ( or whatever the kindle equivalent is, pixel turner?). For anyone who has ever been in or tried to be in a pub rock band there is enough detail that it rings true without drowning you in nerdish detail. If you’ve never done that but know someone who has then this will offer some insight into their joy and agony. If you’ve never been in a band, tried to be in a band or know someone in a band then a) you’ve been missing out and b) it’ still should be an enjoyable read.
Thnx for giving me two days of escapism and enjoyment of George's world. It reminds me too that while being In a band is the best thing ever, I also need to protect my liver from the excesses of being on the road. Hahaha. Now I'm off to try out my new Gibson 345. Still searching for 'that' sound. 😎😉x

Now I want to read the follow up - come on chap. What happened next?
Great characters, well-written and believable, lots of in-jokes, familiar circumstances.
If you've ever been in a band, wanted to be in a band, even seen a band play, you should read this book to give some idea of what goes on behind the scenes.
Very highly recommended!
